Each year for the last ten years in Shanghai, China, huge influxes of people from rural villages of inland provinces, together with their families, flood into bigger cities such as Beijing and Shanghai to seek a better life.

They arrive not by hundreds but by the ten of thousands and settled down into jobs like odd job laborers and part time construction workers. This group of people tend to gather at the outskirts of the city where the cost of living is lower and where the cost of living is lower and where the living condition are not as developed as in the city.

Many privately run schools sprung up overnight to cater to the children of this growing population. However these schools are generally rundown and poorly equipped as they do not enjoy the support or financial help from local authorities. Recognizing their need for assistance, Rotaract Club of NTU in partnership with YMCA Singapore and YMCA Shanghai organizes service programmes to refurbish libraries and provide basic English and Arts lessons.

Volunteers will be required to organize a donation drive for 2nd hand computers to set up a simple lab in the village school. They will be expected to conduct basis computing classes and introduce simple and interesting application programmes such as Adobe Photoshop to allow the children to print a simple self portrait or class photo for their own keepsake as they generally do not have the opportunity to take photographs.

Title: YEP - Donations of toys, books, games, clothes, umbrellas
Post by: thearena on Aug 30, 07, 03:04 AM
Subject: Fw: Youth Expedition to Yangon, Myanmar

A friend of mine will be leading a Youth Expedition with a team to Yangon,
Myanmar in late September.

To prepare for the upcoming monsoon, they will be touching up a ward in the
outskirts to make it into a dependable shelter for the children. The whole
shelter concept acts like a daycare, with learning and play corners as well
as a small library, where children spend their time there as they take
shelter from the monsoon while their parents are out at work.

Henceforth, I would like to appeal on behalf to you reading this, who can
contribute items like toys, books, games, clothes, umbrellas etc which can
benefit the children during the monsoon period. However, we are unable to
collect soft toys as it is not appropriate for play in the wet conditions
and may even form a breeding ground for centipedes.

If you have any items, or know of anyone who has some items, and would like
to contribute to the children's shelter, please drop me an email, and I will make arrangements to have them collected
at your convenience.
