Air Force flies in to aid teach­ers

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

One hun­dred teach­ers from poor re­gions of China at­tended a free train­ing pro­gram in late July held by Chi­nese Air Force and China Chil­dren and Teenagers’ Fund. They took classes about teach­ing de­sign, eval­u­a­tion and pos­i­tive psy­chol­ogy in seven days. Those teach­ers came from 13 eth­nic groups in 13 prov­inces. Since 2012, the pro­gram has helped 466 teach­ers. Zhu Xisheng, sec­re­tary-gen­eral of the fund, said the event aimed to help al­le­vi­ate poverty by giv­ing equal ed­u­ca­tion to kids in poor ar­eas.

Best wishes were writ­ten in note­books at a China Heli Mart pro­mo­tional event in Guizhou. Last month, the chain store group do­nated books and sta­tionery worth up to 100,000 yuan ($14,900) to schools for dis­abled chil­dren in Xi­uwen county of Guiyang in Guizhou prov­ince.
