The month of March means back to school for children across China as they start a new term after the Spring Festival break.
Thanks to the support of ICD Greenlight, this is also true for the four students is rural Zhejiang province that we support by providing funds to cover the costs of transportation, meals and study materials. Without our help, these children might not have been able to continue their studies in 2015.
The photo on the right shows the smiling faces of Shao Zhiying and Shao Zhimin who have increased motivation to study with our support. In addition, student Wang Zhiyan has made her parents and grandmother proud by achieving the highest test scores in her class during last term's exams, putting her in the top five students in her year. Classmate Yu Ling also continues to work hard in school despite her challenging family situation and the urge to start working early to provide an income for the family.
We would like to extend a big thanks to all of our ICD colleagues who have contributed to this charity initiative and have provided the generous donations which allow these students continue attending school and to pursue their dreams.
