Hope Volunteer Association is dedicated to helping children and teenagers who are faced with the possibility of not being able to obtain an education due to poverty.
To complete building the playground before the snowfall and to let the children enjoy themselves as soon as possible, 70 volunteers completed the installation of the playground in only 11 days. Volunteers come from all sectors of society. There were college students, employers, civil servants, white collar workers, farmers, and many more. Please meet a couple of our volunteers:
Lao Zhou is a 73-year-old volunteer. He suffered from cancer as a youth, but he never surrendered to the disease. Instead, he has always maintained a positive attitude. He exercises every day and is enthusiastic about the public welfare. For over 10 years, he has supported over 150 children for schooling in Nanzheng county.
Yang Yuelin is a worker from a printing company. Due to the similarity in required skills, he installed the equipments with high proficiency throughout the project. In order to help out more, Yang even changed his work schedule to night shift so that he would be able to invest more of his time to volunteer during the daytime.
They are just two of our hundreds of volunteers who labor to make a positive difference in our community.
