Preparing for our June 2012 field mission

Yearly donation of the French International School of Hong Kong and selection of new students

The French International School of Hong Kong has been a faithful partner for many years. Supervised by the educational team, the students there organize many events throughout the year in order to raise money for new school materials and the financing of several scholarships. 

Each year, students in their 5th year of secondary school go to Ningxia in order to allocate school materials to the schools that need it. This very special trip is an important moment in the association’s life. It is the occasion to reaffirm our partnership with the French International School, but also the perfect time to follow up on our students as many of them have taken the Gaokao exam at the beginning of June.

The students of the French International School will arrive on June 18 and will allocate school materials to Tuochang primary school, Wangwan primary school and Liumiao primary school. They will also have the opportunity to meet the families, share lunch with them or participate in the morning exercise with the students of Tuochang school. Furthermore, they will have the chance to learn more about Chinese history and culture by visiting Mao’s fort, ruins of the Haiyun’s earthquake or Liumiao’s Taoist temple. They will of course also go to the village of Ma Yan. 

After the students’ departure, the team of ‘Enfants du Ningxia’ will visit the families supported by the association for a routine check-up and the families who applied for a scholarship to select a few more students. Indeed, we are very proud to announce that thanks to your support, we will be able to help more children!

We are very much looking forward to this field mission which surely will be full of interesting moments. You will hear from us again as soon as we get back to Beijing.

See you soon!
