Ark Welfare is a non-profit established in Hechi City, Guangxi. This organization encourages people to get involved in public service and respond to the needs of their communities.
Nestled among the numerous mountains in Yalong county, Guangxi lies a primary school named Shengli Wanquan School. 95% of its students are of Yao nationality, and their daily necessities are carried by mules or horses due to cliffy mountain roads.
Children of this county are innocent and adorable, but with the infertile lands, they are unable to receive enough proper food at their age.
After the "two exempt and one subsidy" policy was implemented in 2007 and provided subsidies on nutria-meals for rural compulsory students, these students finally enjoyed better meals. However, we couldn’t help but ask the question: is it really enough for children of those ages?
This is why we are initiating the “One Egg, One Love” program. We hope an egg for lunch can extend our affection to them, and we hope they can enjoy equal rights under the same sunshine as other urban children. An egg is small, but it will give these children an infinite amount of love and encouragement.
