The Jingjieniao Sunshine Home provides services for the mentally handicapped from poverty-stricken families. The organization is dedicated to improving their spirit and living standards and advocating for every disabled individual to have adequate access to social resources.
We are dreamers and we are learning to decorate our home little by little. We hope you can also come and experience the joy exchanged by the children here. We hope you come and enjoy their achievements. We hope you come and share your dreams and feelings, and be our new friends. A mother of a mentally disabled child said that her biggest hope is to live one day longer than her child, and to call for equal rights for disabled children. At Jing Jie Niao Home, we converge ideas, money, time, wits, and talent, forming a big river in the end and letting the dream blossom and bear fruits.
We wanted to paint our dreams on the wall of Jing Jie Niao, but we could not afford the expensive paint. Fortunately, Lady Wang, a volunteer, donated paint of various different colors to us after hearing our wishes. Volunteers from the Art University then helped us paint our dreams on the wall. Volunteers from Xi’an Children Art Education Base even forgot to eat and rest in order to paint a loving tree. Thank you all.
