The Panda Care is a volunteer group formed after the May 2008 Sichuan earthquake. They aim to help children living in poverty who may have lost love ones to the disaster. To learn more about Panda group, click here.
It has become colder and colder since the beginning of September. We visited each sponsored child’s home, hoping to get parents’ support for their child’s education. Through effective communication, we hoped to encourage the children to avoid dropping out from school, and we especially focused on the children that we sponsored. We hope that they could keep their mind on studying and strive to learn more so that they can contribute to their family and society. However, the main purpose of our home visits is to get an idea of their situations and to communicate with their parents efficiently and timely, and to keep them focused on their studies. Should any special circumstance occur, our volunteers will communicate with parents and solve the problems as soon as possible.
