Compassion Nayong Public Welfare is based on Nayong, a poverty-stricken area in Guizhou Province. Taking the network as the platform, it carries out various public welfare activities to aid education.
Long Yan is in Grade 1. Her father passed away and she lives with her mother and her stepfather.
The place where she lives is 2000 meters above sea level. The crops cannot grow well and most of people here had to go out to work. Due to these conditions, Long Yan is hard-working and independent.
She never goes to school late or leaves school early. She works hard at school and does great job in her examinations. She also has good characters.
One day after school, when her cousin and Long Yang were playing outside of the village, they found a 100 yuan note in the road. At that moment, Long Yang remembered that her mother had told her not to accept ill-gotten gains, and the teacher also told them to be honest. 100 yuan is not a small amount. Long Yan and her cousin made a decision: ask the teacher to keep the money and wait for the person who lost the money to claim it.
They found the teacher and told the teacher about the money. Later, a villager who lost the money got the money back.
At that critical moment, Long Yan was honest and made the right decision. Teachers praised her for her behavior. She became a model child among the other children at school.
