Mingda School: Story of Li Bingbing
Mingda School is in Xiji County, Ningxia province and pays attention to rural education in northwest of China, in particular English education. The School provides a relaxing and healthy education environment for the left-behind children living in rural areas.
Li Bingbing is a 14-year-old girl and is unable to walk independently. She is extremely bright and ranks top 10 in her class, but her disability makes life very difficult for her and her family.
For over 10 years, her mother had been taking care of her. Last year however, her mother passed away due to leukemia, leaving the 4 children and her father behind. To take care of the children, dad is staying home and working temp jobs around town. Grandma does all the cooking and housework but is getting old and the work is taking toll on her body. Li Bingbing’s younger sister tries to take on that responsibility since her older sister can't.
