As a non-governmental organization, Jiaozuo Education Aid Association takes “building a loving platform for the development of teenager” as its mission. It is in Jiaozuo, Henan.
At 8:00 in the morning, June 24, volunteers from our association, 2 reporters from Orient Today and a supplier of basketball stands went to Dongchangcun Primary School, bringing basketball stands to the children.
After a 1 hour long ride, they arrived at the school. The schoolmaster and teachers gave them a warm welcome. The basketball stand was moved to the playground of school. The playground is simple with no sports equipment. The volunteers discussed how to arrange the basketball stands.
Installation of the basketball stands needs sand and lime to build the base. Teachers borrowed an electro-tricycle and bought materials together with a volunteer. Then they were busy building the base. Qianqian, a volunteer, bought bottled water for all the people and Xiao Ci was busy taking pictures. It’s hot, and Dongzi, one of the volunteers, got his clothes all wet. The base needed to be dried for 3 to 4 days before the installation. The supplier explained the precautions of installation to the PE teachers.
As they were leaving, the schoolmaster gave the volunteers presents to express their gratitude, but the volunteers declined with thanks.The bell rang and students went out to the playground. Seeing the new basketball stands, they were so happy.
We hope the extracurricular life of the students has became more colorful.
