[2012-09-08] Shin Shin Team Visited 5 Schools in Xinjiang

Led by Shin Shin's Chairman David Tsang and President Steve Ting, a team of 7 volunteers visited five Shin Shin schools scattered around four corners of the vast land in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region in September. After all the tightly scheduled flights and long bus rides, they reached each school timely and delivered Shin Shin's love and care. The exhaustion from the road was completely washed away by the warm welcome at the schools. The team was refreshed by the close interactions with teachers and students in various activities that engaged the Shin Shin’s spirit. One school has expressed that “SS programs benefit the schools, but the care/love/spirit from people who travelled thousands of miles away will have lifelong impact to students forever.” The most gratifying comment was from elementary school students who pledged that they want to become volunteers to help people in need when they grow up. This kind of reaction fits into Shin Shin’s spirit and is priceless. The Shin Shin members were also glad to receive many positive feedback about Shin Shin's ECTT program, Computer Lab/Multimedia Teaching Aid program and library project. The Shin Shin team also had fruitful meetings with the leaders of the local Chinese Oversea Affairs Office, Educational Bureau, and schools.
