Before the establishment of the RICI Foundation, we had made a lot of material donations and support. During this process, we found that most of the student-aid projects were often focused on children with excellent grades. However, due to poor grades, disability, etc., those children at the bottom of society were often neglected and denied the opportunity to return to school.
In order to support these children to continue their studies, RICI launched the Huixin student-aid project in 2013. Before the project, the foundation researched 29 schools and found that even if these children had the opportunity to go back to school, the lack of teachers and the backward educational concepts would still be two obstacles for the children to overcome in their growth.
This prompted us to wonder: what can RICI really do for them?
The more time passes, the more we feel the need to give children the ability to develop themselves in the process of support. In particular, the development of the mind is crucial. If people can look at things and the world in a positive way, the future will be better. When we change the mental structure of children, it is like putting on a pair of shoes to help them through all the setbacks and difficulties. Every child is a cell of society, and the more children there are, the more hopeful the society will be.
I also hope to call on more people to pay attention to spiritual development and build a better society through the platform of RICI.
