In accordance with the work arrangement of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), the Women's Federation of Gansu Province called upon women's federations at all levels across the province to implement various education and caring activities, enabling rural left-behind and disadvantaged children to spend a healthy, safe and happy summer vacation.  

Many college students participated in the voluntary activities organized by the province's women's federation when they went back to their rural hometowns in Gansu for spending the summer vacation. 

In Zhangxian and Xihe Counties in Gansu Province, student volunteers taught children to sing patriotic songs, and the children became more confident.

Volunteers also gave sweaters and books to left-behind and disadvantaged children.

"When Shen Yueyue, President of the ACWF, surveyed my hometown, she said college students could participate in voluntary activities when returning home for summer vacation, enhancing the sense of responsibility to care for children, serve society, and make contributions to the country," said Wang Xihong, a student volunteer in his hometown, Zhangxian County.

Wang added that he would join the volunteers' team every year when he came back home, and he would teach rural children what he has learned.
