Profile

Dear donors of the PEACH Foundation:

Greetings! I am a freshman in high school, currently studying at Yanyuan Town Minzu Secondary School. My family has faced a lot of hardships, and my teacher said you are able to provide support to families in poverty. Therefore I’m submitting this application.

Let me tell you a bit more about my family conditions:

My family lives in Shuwen Town, Guanfang Village. There are four members in my family: my father, my mother, my brother and myself. Our house is made of soil. It’s not beautiful to look at but it is enough to shelter us. My parents are both farmers. Most of our income comes from farming and largely depends on our crop harvest. My father sometimes tries to find odd jobs to make some money, but they are mostly labor jobs and don’t provide much income.

My brother is in second grade of middle school and it costs a lot of money as well. My family has very little land, so we can only produce a small harvest every year. Our family doesn’t have an orchard or any farming machinery, so our income sources are even more limited. Even with the money my father earns from labor jobs, we only make a little more than three thousand RMB. This was just enough to cover my brother and my expenses during middle school. Now that I’m in high school and I live far from home, everything costs money. Things have only gotten worse since then.

However since I have been sent to school, I will cherish this chance and work very hard. We are village children and we can only change our destiny by doing well in school. This is the best and shortest way.

    See below for an update from Daiyun. We strongly encourage you to take a few minutes to write back - in stressful times, our students really appreciate hearing from Givologists. -- Dear aunts and uncles at Givology, Hello to you all! We had our monthly exam, so it took a while for me to write back to you, I am very sorry. I don't really have much to say as my situation is similar to what it was in the last letter. However I would still like to tell you a few things that I normally don't want to share, some of my problems. I wanted to talk about some of my dissatisfaction at school. Now the whole country is talking about reducing students' burdens, but my school is not doing that. Other grades only have class till Friday, but ours go on till Sunday and that makes me unhappy, because I feel like I am a free spirit, and I don't like to be oppressed or forced. The more other people force me to do something, the more I will dislike it. Even if it's for my own good, I ...

    Dear uncles and aunties, Although we haven’t met, I am really grateful for your warm help and kindness. I feel that you must be very nice and you make me know that love is actually around everywhere, though I do not know you well. You were students, when you might be happy, sad, anxious or bored. My campus life is just boring. Everyone is surrounded by homework and textbooks. There is nothing but homework. No matter we like the subject or not, we have to finish all of them. However, when studying mathematics, my boredom will be gone completely. I am excited when I am able to solve each question and I will not give up before I get the answer. When I keep thinking about difficult questions, I am motivated because I have some goals to achieve. Even though I have to learn subjects which I dislike, I will try my best to like them. So far, I haven’t participated in any interesting extracurricular projects. I didn’t mean that I do not want to. Actually, our school has never organized...
