A campaign to encourage college students to hold voluntary services for rural "left-behind" children (whose parents have left them at their hometowns to find work in far-off cities) at their birthplace during the ongoing summer holiday was jointly undertaken by the Guangxi Women's Federation and the Guangxi Working Committee on Universities and College's Affairs at Huanglv Village of Taodeng Township in Laibin District, Laibin City, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, on July 16.
Vice-Inspector of the Guangxi Women's Federation Ban Leying attended the event and sent stationary and other items on behalf of the federation to local children.
Meanwhile, an array of activities, including games, artistic performances and story-telling, were staged by attending college students to help local teenagers have a better understanding of the terms "China Dream" and "core socialist values"; promote knowledge of safety education; teach about anti-AIDS and the illicit use of drugs; and promote family education and the construction of beautiful courtyards.
Under the assistance of attending undergraduates, local teenagers were also organized to showcase the beauty of their countryside with paintings and hold online talks with their parents on the Internet.
Furthermore, Teng Jiezhen, a teacher from the Guangxi Woman Cadre's School, was invited to speak with local parents about how to express their love and affection to children in daily life, whilst Vice-Director of the Guangxi Narcotics Control Bureau Li Jiangzhao lectured them about knowledge in connection with the dangers of illicit use of drugs and the infection of HIV, and the implementation of family teaching with an emphasis upon scientific tools.
According to the Guangxi Women's Federation and the Guangxi Working Committee on Universities and College's Affairs, more similar events will be held with the active participation of college students to further enrich the life of rural left-behind children during their summer vacation.
