Inner Mongolia BOYA Cultural Association is a non-governmental organization working with environmental protection and social public welfare.
When you complain about unfair treatment or stress from life and work, have you ever considered that some vulnerable groups do not even have the chance to experience such feelings? They need someone to care for and accompany them in their daily life. They are unable to take care of themselves. Considering this, how can you still think of unfairness? They become a burden on their families due to their disability. They can neither achieve independence in society nor share in their family’s burden. They do feel anxiety, but they can do nothing to help their families. We've now started organizing training for them. Through it, they can not only learn some life skills, but also make new friends. The teens thoroughly enjoy their training.
Our classroom is humble. We do not even have a heater, but the teens sat for about 3 hours, eagerly leaning the art of paper-cutting. They would always tell us that they appreciated BOYA’s support, which made them feel respected and cared for. We just respond that we're simply doing what we should be doing. A healthy society should be full of hope and service.
