The Different Trip: Visit SVWA school in Sichuan, China, 2014

The Different Trip-- Visit SVWA school in Sichuan, China, 2014
by Mawyuan lee

   My first impression of the principal and the office administrator as they greeted us was that they seemed pretty ordinary. The car they drove was out of style and covered with mud, but they didn't seem extremely needy. How the mud landed on the roof, I was not sure. "It will take about two hours," they said. The ride gradually steepened as we advanced up the mountains. The nicely paved cement road disappeared, replaced by dirt and mud. Soon it was farmland, trees, and an occasional village.

   When we finally arrived at JinPen Elementary School, we were ushered into the principal's office across the street. As the adults were making small talk, I glanced at the school. The school seemed nice enough. Even though it wasn't the most modernized institute in the world, it was neat and clean. There were stairs leading up to the school, which was white with a small mural in front. The dismissal bell rang and the students spilled out of the classrooms. After a minute or two, our group heads toward the school. All the smaller children were gathered in groups on the first floor, either talking or racing. A few older girls who I assume are in sixth grade were lined up in the middle of the second floor, watching everyone as if they were the protectors of the school surveying the campus. As I walked toward the classrooms, I was aware that more than a few of eyes were upon me. Children streamed past me as they squeezed to get into the picture mom was preparing to take.

大山里的孩子:访四川省巴中市南江县高塔乡金盆硅谷女性欣欣小学

大山里的孩子--访四川省巴中市南江县高塔乡金盆硅谷女性欣欣小学(6/20/2014)
硅谷女性, 谭言和

       承诺带女儿去四川省南江县高塔乡金盆村,硅谷女性欣欣小学回访,看望在大山里的孩子们,是今年年初,我们确定了要回中国的时候的事了。为了帮助我更多的了 解该所学校,方便交流,3/27/2014,硅谷女性理事会主席张晓枫在微信上建立了一个“硅谷女性欣欣小学”的小群,其中有会长葛萍,张晓枫;会计 Betty Li,曾经访问过四川省南江县天马村硅谷女性欣欣小学的副会长黄娟,大作家张慈和我。欣欣分管四川和重庆的Vickie也积极帮忙联系巴中市侨办的白娟主 任。那以后,我们就开始了一系列的网上讨论和前期准备工作。从与学校沟通,联系,了解学校和学生最想要的物品,到在网上查找赠送物品;从与国内义工联系, 订做教师们希望得到的有硅谷女性标志的水杯;到与校方沟通确定优秀贫困学生及优秀老师奖助学金名额及金额;从与学校商量回访议程,到联系车辆,邀请随行司 机。。。。在我们讨论的过程中,歌唱家沃尔佳在遥远的北京知道了我们回访硅谷女性欣欣小学的事,从北京专程发来信息,热切希望加入到回访的行列里来,并提 出,希望能给山区的孩子们上两堂音乐课。当我把这个消息告诉学校领导以后,学校的反应是:“非常欢迎!”。这以后,通过网信联络的不断互动,终于敲定我们 回访的时间:2014年6月20日。学校还告诉我们,因为金盆小学在山区,为了不致耽误上午的音乐课,所以,希望我们在19号下午就要到达南江县城。
         一切就绪,就等启程!
