Wild Lily Foundation is an NGO that focuses on supporting school children with generally low nutrient intake, and helping them to balance their physical and mental developments.
After leaving Shengli elementary school, we went straight to the Nongyou teaching point, which was not located anywhere near the road, so we needed to head up and down the hill to get there.
The implementation of the Egg Plan occasionally needs support from both school and parents, Fang Xiaogang explained. The eggs sent here need to be distributed to each school by volunteers.
The only teacher at Nongyou teaching point was transferred over from another school a few years ago. During lunch time, the teacher always found one person to help him with meals, and the students were responsible for washing dishes and cleaning up. This small kitchen also served as the school washroom, which was built in 2010.
It was the earliest teaching point that was initiated by Fang Xiaogang, so the children here were very familiar with him and could get along well with each other easily. During the break, I was impressed by two students who did not go out to play, but chose to read in the classroom instead.
There are 63 total students at this school. After we left, Fang found the sponsors of Shenzhen and gave each child two sets of clothing. At the end, we asked the children to take a photo together. They were glad, responding with a sweet smile on their faces. Seeing that, we felt very pleased and gratified.
To see more of our wonderful time with the children, please look at the album.
