Changing Young Lives Foundation is a Hong Kong registered charity striving to identify underprivileged children, youths and their families in Hong Kong and mainland China and change their lives for the better.
The School Social Worker Support Project aims to support the psycho-social well-being of left-behind children in Dongxiang County, Gansu. Tailor-made extracurricular activities are organized for students including interest courses, field trips and special events. Furthermore, counselling service and home visits by social workers provide mental support to the children and their parents.
Over the last few months, the school social worker has collected students’ personal information for building the database of left-behind children in Dongxiang Township. This will help the long-term project planning for community development.
Sports Gala Day
Students participated in many sports games and enjoyed the day. According to the social worker, many students helped with setting up, timekeeping and score keeping for the contests, and they were wholly devoted throughout the day.

Site Visit by CYLF and Transparent Fish Fund
CYLF and representatives from Transparent Fish Fund visited Dashu district in May 2016. It was interesting to see the differences between us and the kids from Dongxiang. The biggest lesson that we have learned from the visit is that reading opens a window of opportunity for them and it helps to communicate with other people.
This project benefits 80 students from underprivileged families in Huangjia Primary School and Gudu Primary School and over 1,800 students and teachers in the whole school district. We truly appreciate Transparent Fish Fund’s support to this meaningful project for left-behind children in Gansu.
