Hubei Shin Shin Schools

Hubei is a central province of China. Its abbreviation is Er. The name of Hubei means "North of the Lake," referring to Hubei's position north of Dongting Lake. Hubei covers an area of 185,900 square kilometers, accounting for 1.94% of the national total, ranking 16th nationwide. The population of Hubei is about 60 million. Hubei is divided into 17 prefecture-level cities. It also includes three directly administered county-level cities and one directly administered county-level forestry area. The Yangtze River and Hanshui River meet at Wuhan City, the provincial capital. Thousands of lakes occupy the landscape, giving Hubei the name of "Province of Lakes".

The Yangtze River enters Hubei from the west via the Three Gorges Dam, which began construction in 1993. Han Chinese form the dominant ethnic group in Hubei. A considerable Miao and Tujia population live in the southwestern part of the province, especially in Enshi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture. In the past, Hubei was home to the powerful state of Chu, a tributary state of the Zhou Dynasty, which was an extension of the Chinese civilization that had emerged some centuries before. It developed its own unique culture.

Shin Shin has helped build and remodel nine schools in six cities (Qianjiang, DanJiangko, Xiaogan, ZhongXiang, Yangxing, Ehzhou) in Hubei. Six of the schools have already installed eleven computers for each school, and further funding has helped the schools purchase student desks, chairs, school equipment, and athletic equipment. The funds also helped the school library obtained hundreds of books. One teacher attended the Shin Shin funded English Teacher Training Program in Hunan this year. Shin Shin has given hope to the poverty-stricken children in this province.
