Guangxi Shin Shin Schools

Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Administrative Region is located in southwestern China. It covers an area of 236,660 square kilometers. Guangxi is home to 14 million Zhuang (over 90% of its total population), one of the major minority ethnic groups in China, in addition to other minority ethnic groups that include Yao, Miao, Dong, Yao Lao, Mao Nan, Hui, Jing, Yi, and Shui. Guangxi borders Yunnan to the west, Guizhou to the north, Hunan to the northeast, and Guangdong to the southeast. It is also bound by Vietnam in the southwest and the Gulf of Tonkin in the south. Guangxi has an overall low altitude (in contrast to its neighbor Yunnan), and is 60% covered by mountainous Karst landscape.

The major tourist attractions of Guangxi are Guilin and Yangshuo, two adjacent towns famous across China and the world for their spectacular setting by the Li Jiang River among severe Karst peaks. Liuzhou, a less famous but just as beautiful city, is not far from Guilin. It too boasts a spectacular landscape and picturesque scenery. It has been the subject of beautiful poems and prose since the Tang dynasty when a famous poet wrote one of his most celebrated classics in Liuzhou. Guangxi is also famous for its folk songs. Guangxi is China's window to Southeast Asian countries; its capital Nanning has become an increasingly important center for cultural and economic exchanges.

Shin Shin Educational Foundation rebuilt its first elementary school in Guangxi in 2003 at Shi Wan Shan Hua Qiao tree farm. Our second school was built in Rong county. Five new schools will be constructed in 2007 in Guangxi in Fu-chuan county, Bai-se county, Yu-lin county, Qi-cheng county, and San-jiang county. All five to-be-constructed schools have been visited in June 2007. Shin Shin continues to support the existing Shin Shin schools through follow-up fund programs such as the general fund program for improving teaching conditions, scholarship program to support individual students to achieve secondary education, and English teacher training program. In the future, as more schools are constructed in Guangxi, they will also be strong contenders for the computer lab programs.
