ycis-sh-sichuan-hope-schoolAfter the devastating earthquake hit Sichuan in 2008, YCIS campuses responded by forming the Sichuan Earthquake Educational Development (SEED), which raised RMB 1.5 million. This money was used to rebuild the Minzhu Primary School in Anyue, and in April 2012, a group of YCIS students and teachers paid a visit to the children there.

Students and teachers from YCIS Shanghai, Beijing and Chongqing spent two nights at Minzhu Primary School and provided music, art and sports workshops for the appreciative children. Most impressive was the way in which the YCIS students so easily connected with the local children through teaching them new skills, playing games and building friendships.

In the coming months, YCIS students and staff will present a variety of events focused upon raising funds for the establishment of the next Seeds of Hope School, in the town of Qufu in Shandong Province. It is a testament to the YCIS community’s on-going support that we have achieved so much, and that we continue to strive in reaching our latest goal.
