The Jingjieniao Home is in Xi’an, Shan’xi province. It provides services for the mentally handicapped from poverty-stricken families. The organization is dedicated to improving their spirit and living standards and advocating for every disabled individual to have adequate access to social resources.
On October 11, 2013, children from the Jingjieniao Home went to Gaoxin No. 1 Middle School by bus to attend a party. The teachers and students from Gaoxin Middle School and the students from Jingjieniao did a lot to prepare for the activity- everyone wanted to present a wonderful performance.
At 9:00 AM, the students dressed up and started off in high spirits. They were even singing songs on the bus. When they entered the spacious music hall and saw the bright lights and rows of seats, the student could not help but feel nervous. But after rehearsal, they became more confident. The activity officially began with the entrance of students and teachers from Gaoxin No. 1 Middle School.
The students from Gaoxin No.1 Middle School organized the activity to bring happiness and warmth to the students from Jingjieniao. But they ended up inspiring themselves as well!. All the students were the same age, but their situations are so different. We hope the students from Gaoxin No.1 Middle school learned something valuable from our students. We also hope the activity will encourage more people to participate in activities like this, letting the seeds of love take roots.
