Education experts note that children in poor rural areas, unlike their peers in cities having chances to visit bookstores or libraries, can only learn the limited knowledge from textbooks. As they don't read, they are “malnourished”mentally and far left-behind in terms of knowledge and horizon. As a result, they will be incompetent when they grow up.
Project Hope Happy Reading provides village schools with selected excellent books to help rural kids have access to and enjoy reading.
A donation of 120 yuan can give a school one package of Happy Reading books plus teacher training; a donation of 12 yuan can give a student one Happy Reading book. All donations will be included in CYDF's“Project Hope Happy Reading Fund”. 10% of the funds will be used on the program management and general administration of CYDF).
