Albinism Children’s Home is a public service platform designed to help and support albinos and their families living in China. The organization's main goal is to improve living standards and promote equal participation in society for albinos. Abinism Children's Home is in Xi’an, Shanxi province.
On June 16, 2013, the living library in the lobby of the Shanxi Provincial Library opened. 10 “living books” were “read” by the readers. 10 people shared their life stories face to face with the readers.
What is a living library? It is a way that people can act as a book and transmit their personal information. Their personal experiences can become the contents of the book and the author will develop certain themes, which will be provided to the readers.
The living library was organized by over 10 local NGOs in Xi’an. Their purpose is to convey the idea of multi-channel public welfare to the readers.
Xie Fubao, a volunteer of Albinism Home, participated in the story sharing activity. He is an editor and he is also the author of The One Who Is Chasing The Sun. He is albino and he is willing to share his perceptions and insights on life, hoping that more albinos will work and live happily.
