Xi'an Public Welfare Alliance works to promote a spirit of volunteerism. Many student volunteers are trained to participate in public welfare activities and social work. Read the article here.
This is my second day in Beijing for the NGO Exchange meeting, and it is the most rewarding day for me.
I was very impressed by the TFish staff, who was very genial and friendly about everything. Without a slice of officialdom, the management culture is direct and concise, as well as comfortable, which is quite novel and pleasant.
I also met many friends here. As we all shared the same concepts on NGO programs, we exchanged deep opinions with one another. Many of us only communicated online, so we were very glad to talk together face-to-face.
It was a great honor to be the first speaker of the meeting. Although I once gave a public lecture in front of 600 volunteers, I still felt a little nervous in front of dozens of NGO leaders and specialists. I was just a fresh learner, and I learned a lot from these experienced leaders like teacher Zhou, teacher Dai, teacher Gu and Xinyang Volunteer Association. I was particularly impressed by Dr. Zhao Xiaoping, who provided tons of guiding knowledge on NGO-organizing and broadened my horizons on public environmental protection.
Anyway, the second day was a meaningful and rewarding day in my life.
