The Kunming Women's Entrepreneurship and Innovation Demonstration Center joined hands with the Women's Federation of the Panlong District's branch of the Kunming Xinhua Bookstore Group, in Kunming, capital of Southwest China's Yunnan Province, to host a reading salon for rural children.
The salon, which was a part of a summer camp held by a local charity organization, was held for a group of pupils from Liangzi, a village where people of some ethnic groups inhabit, in Linchang City, Yunnan Province. The children were presented with their favorite book as a gift at the event and were encouraged to read their favorite stories aloud.
Guan Yaoxin, a student volunteer from Sichuan Film and Television University, taught the children to read aloud with expression and explore the charm of recitation.
Deng Qiong, editor-in-chief of a local education press, emphasized the importance of reading, adding that regular reading and broad vision could make a person stronger and braver and help people communicate with others with a more peaceful attitude.
Zhang Siyu, founder of a cultural workshop, inspired the children to do creative paintings at the salon.
As the first women's federation of a state-owned enterprise in Panlong District, the women's federation of the branch of the Kunming Xinhua Bookstore Group plays an active role in offering better services for women and children.
