Rainbow Village Help Center is a TFish Strategics Member. It was established in Chengdu of Sichuan, China and for the purpose of giving glasses to impoverished children.
2 months after the earthquake in Ya’an, the rescue work is almost completed. Life at the disaster-stricken area is returning to normal. The school is on summer holiday, so education and safety for the children is very important.
The below picture shows the place that Rainbow Village wants to set up a service center. It is located in a mountainous area with poor traffic. The houses have been badly destroyed by the quake, and the whole town has to be rebuilt. The people will have to live in the tents during the reconstruction.
After the quake, many kindergartens became dilapidated. Temporary shelters were built, but the space inside is smaller, which makes it harder for the children to play. They have to have their classes in the morning, but they do not have a place to play after school. There are dilapidated buildings everywhere.
Rain Service Center for Children is a project run in collaboration with One Fund and One Playground. It aims to provide a safe and comfortable playground for the children living in the disaster-stricken areas. Because of the quake, children will have to make up lessons and attend hobby groups during the summer holiday. The playground will ensure that they do not play near dilapidated buildings. Now their parents can focus on reconstruction. Here in the playground, the children will have carefree fun, which is good for them psychologically.
