Pilot Programs in Zhejiang, China
This year we are excited to bring the successful computer classes from Vietnam into a new country—China. We're starting with 2 private migrant schools that are only a 10-minute drive from each other in Zhejiang. In January, our local contact who will be responsible for launching the programs in China, visited both schools and met their principals.
1) Nanshu School
Mr. Liu, the principal, started the school in 2000. They currently have 600 students from 7-15 years old. There are 26 teachers, and while they don't have a real computer teacher, the school does have a computer class for each grade. A company recently donated second-hand Dell laptops to the school.
2) Guangyuan School
Mr. Zhang is the principal, and he started cooperating with a nonprofit organization named Stepping Stones a few years ago. Stepping Stones will partner with us to help bring Orphan Impact to China. Guangyan School has 700 students and 30 teachers. They have a computer room, but the equipment is too old to use. Mr. Zhang also owns two kindergartens and two migrant schools in Shanghai.
Field Report: Learning from the Model in Vietnam
In March 2016, Teddy (a TFish volunteer) and Corinne (from Stepping Stones) traveled to Vietnam to learn how Orphan Impact conducts their computer training classes. This will help them bring the program to China. Read about their trip.
