Abinism Children's Home is a public service platform designed to help and support albinos and their families living in China. The organization's main goal is to improve living standards and promote equal participation in society for albinos.
It is a great honor for Albinism Children’s Home to cooperate with Transparent Fish Fund with the help of Mrs. Hu. As the director of the initial project, I was ashamed that I hadn’t gotten the interactive model of TFF. It was during Mr. Wang’s visit in October to Xi’an when we were finally able to exchange ideas, and I rediscovered TFF.
Honestly speaking, this is the first time I publicized news in my own account, and in the past, it is Mrs. Hu who propagates our projects. I had planned to do this after Mr. Wang left, but all the workers were exhausted from the national exchanging of meeting of families with children suffering from albinism in November until last week. Since then, I have had a toothache and pulled out the first tooth, so now I have the opportunity to improve myself.
First of all, I’d like to introduce myself.
I’m Lu Guan, and I was born in 1980. I myself suffer from albinism, and I’m Catholic. Graduating from Xidian University in 2003, I worked in the department of public affairs in Huiling, Xi’an. In 2007, I started a NGO, founding Albinism Children’s Home, and was accredited as a professional in social welfare causes in 2008. Until now, I was the general director of the Albinism Children’s Home, the executor of Sunshine House at Xidian University, and the consultant of Sunshine House in Xinyue, as well as a substitute teacher at Shanxi Seminary.
I was enriched by work and experience and turned from an idealist to a do-er. That’s a good thing. However, I am no longer fond of publicizing my work and am nearly unable to use the modern social networks.
I spent most of my time in these projects and my family life. My friends once joked to me that I was really in want of a secretary who could propagate my daily work.
Nowadays, it’s very convenient to publicize with the help of the multimedia. But with different propaganda purposes, I felt confused and exhausted with different publicizing tools. If we all use the Xinlang weibo, we can save a lot of time. Or if there’s a platform for all of us to publicize our news, it will be great and it can be called a welfare in itself.
The above is my meditation before entering the partnership with TFF. The new interactive model is for us to study and explore. I changed my views on TFF when I embraced the intense atmosphere of being an NGO and the support that comes from it. In the future I’ll publicize my diaries as often as possible. But I still hope that TFF can provide us with mobile access to it so we can spend more time here.
