After internal discussions of the Tu Zhuanjia projects and funding (the transparent fish fund) communication , they officially announced the 2012 target of the Tu Zhuanjia project adjustment notice. In order to ensure the quality of sharing reports and articles, it adjusted to 4 articles of domestic experience sharing and 6-8 foreign experience sharing per year.
During the 2 month practice, we found we needed much more work than we had previously thought to plan an article of foreign experience sharing that matched Chinese local culture and conditions and could guide the development of grass-roots organizations.
There are several steps to issue an article. We need to choose a topic, write a draft, and promote. And then we should collect advice, amend, and finally issue the article. It takes at least 40-60 hours to finish an article. It takes less time in translation but more time in revising and composing.
We have a part-time project manager who spends 8 hours each week and takes charge of the project and a part-time editor who spends 15 days per month to collect files of domestic experience. It mostly depends on Wu Jing to draft foreign experience sharing material.

To continue the promotion of "grassroots charity":
There are some details about Grass-roots Charity promoted by The Third Guangzhou Chinese universities Environment Development Forum.
I took 5 books to Guangzhou and sent them to friends: Wufang Xiaowei, the former secretary-general of Earth Friends (Hong Kong), Chen Zhiqiang of Earth Friends (China), Xiao Zhiqiang of Shanghai entrepreneur training group, Li Zhou of GGF Chinese youth group and Li Chunhua of Nanjing Green Stone. We also discussed about grass-roots charity and recommended it. It was popular. Before long when talking with Wu Fengshi, we mentioned that there were many similarities between grass-roots charity mode and GFF mode. GFF itself may be another kind of existence of grass-roots charity.
In Chongqing office I sent 2 books to sponsors of Shanghai Huangpu District Non-profit Charity Association. In addition, I sent a book to each Chongqing environmental organization in the environment communication meeting. I hope we can hold a reading meeting in the future to share our opinions about the book.

The day before yesterday, Wu Jing and Zhang Sumei communicated with Xiang Xin, one of the founders of Qing Cao Public Welfare Team. The first time Xiang Xin met Wu Jing was at a peer training held in Guangzhou in July 7, 2010. With the support of teachers and family, she and her classmate founded Qing Cao Summer Camp, a program about education of peasant workers’ children. At that time, Xiang Xin was a high school student and now she is a student at Harvard. She is temporarily absent from school and is continuing to carry out the Qing Cao program. They will hold 10-day summer camp in Kangle and Qiming High School. There are a lot of classes and activities to promote their personality, such as English, drama, art, and creative writing. All are free to join the summer camp. Volunteers will get some traffic allowance.
This is a good program that aims to improve by learning from each other. All the activities are designed by high school volunteers. In addition, there will be a “teacher-friend plan” to help them build long-term relationships.Original
