New Desks and Chairs at Wanhu Elementary School

Dear Donors,

Hope this email finds you well! As we enter the holiday season, we brought great news to share with you.

At the end of last year, our volunteers traveled to Xuanhan County in Sichuan Province. We visited five schools that were lacking adequate infrastructure due to insufficient funding; among them was Wanhu Elementary School. The school offered a learning environment for 298 students and, additionally, a daycare center for 130 children under six years old. The administrators and teachers did the best they could to improve the school’s facilities, but the conditions were still far from satisfactory. The classrooms especially caught our attention. The desks and chairs the students used were old sets from another school. Majority of the chairs were falling apart with the seats and legs separated from each other. Like the teachers, we were very concerned with student’s safety while using these desks and chairs and so we decided to help.

With your strong support, we bought 298 new sets of desks and chairs for every student at Wanhu in this April. Each set only costs about 12 dollars, but it is high quality and beautiful. As you can see in the pictures, now the students can attend classes more comfortably and learn with fewer distractions. We could not have done this without your help. Please accept our deepest gratitude for your kindness and generosity.

May the holiday season bring happiness and joy to you and your loved ones!

Sincerely,

Overseas China Education Foundation
