Chinese students from a village in north China's Hebei Province have been learning about Spanish culture in a program offered by Manos International, a non-profit NGO, over the past few weeks.

In the Spain-themed program, students from Zhuangtou Village are learning various topics about the country, its location and its people.. They have also experienced a presentation of Pamplona's running of the bulls and learned about famous painters Pablo Picasso and Salvatore Dali, as well as trying their own hands at oil painting.

Also, in the summer of 2012, the China branch of Manos International organized a five-week singing summer camp for these children and its youth choir, consisting of students and teachers, put on an excellent performance for volunteers and members of the NGO.

Founded in 2001, Manos International is committed to providing educational programs to children living in poverty around the world.
