Needy Tibetan students cared by their school

We entered the Yangbajain Township Center Primary School with children's joyful songs. The school lies at the intersection of the China-India Highway and the Qinghai-Tibet Highway at an altitude of 4,300 meters. Siduo, principal of the school told us that since 2009, the school has been implementing "one-to-two" activities, which means each CCP member helps two students who have financial problems and learning difficulties at school. In the meantime, each full-time teacher at school also helps two students, which is to buy stationery for a student from poor families and to tutor him who does poorly in his study after class.

Our reporter then went to students' dormitory. Bianba Tashi, who is suffering from polio was stopped by his teacher amiably from standing up when he intended to. "He had difficulty in walking. Please let him sit," Puzhen, his class teacher said. These warm words moved everybody at present. When we were talking with Bianba Tashi, Puzhen was busy bringing kids' shoes and sheet out of the room to be sterilized in the sun.

Bianba Tashi's mother died in 2007. Since then, his father and him have live on grazing, from which the family can hardly make ends meet. Under this circumstance, the school brings goods and materials to his home on each International Children's Day (on June 1) and the Tibetan New Year(around late January), such as buttered tea, brick tea, tsamba, boiled oil, etc. The school also sent the poor kid money to support him and also encouraged him to face his tough life. "My school not only cares for my life, it also helps me with my study after class. Teachers of different subjects always ask me to go to their homes and give me tutoring when I lag behind other classmates in the courses. I really appreciate their help."

According to Siduo, since 2009, numerous party members have been participating in the "one-to-two" project to help each other, and sending study materials, articles of daily use and cash to needy students. By far, the value of these materials and cash has amounted to 39,900 yuan.
