Ark Welfare is a non-profit established in Hechi City, Guangxi, that encourages people to get involved in public service and respond to the needs of their communities.
In July of 2012, volunteers from the Ark Welfare Mutual Help Center assisted the One Foundation help children affected by the mudslide in Sanbao Village, Tian’e County. They discovered that the local economy was not doing well, the National Nutrition Improvement Plan had not been implemented, and the students did not eat breakfast. After communicating with the Wild Lily Welfare Federation, both parties agreed to implement the One Egg Program in seven schools of Tian’e County from September 2012. The project provided one egg to each child every day for nutritional supplement. It was implemented by Ark Welfare and the local volunteers.
On September 19, 2012, the One Egg Program was initiated in Tian’e county. From December 2012 to January 2013, 23944 eggs and 19258 RMB were distributed to the students. Random inspections done in December and January showed that the program was progressing smoothly.
