of Guangming has focused our resources among the sojourners on the northwest
Yunnan mountains in the past year. We continued our alliance with the
Social Services Committee of Baoshan Christian Council (BCCSSC), and
launched the following projects:
storage tanks: we funded 12 water storage tanks located in various
villages on the mountains, to ease their water shortage.
and literacy education (two units): we sponsored and sent
two Lisu teachers into the sojourning communities, teaching them basic
knowledge in Chinese, arithmetics, hygiene, agriculture, child education
and birth control and family planning. The two teachers were responsible
for different locations.
construction: we funded the construction of a school named Guangming
co-operating with our local partner BCCSSC, we funded an SUV for transporting
teachers and supplies to and from the mountains.
donations: two lots of clothing donations were arranged and distributed
among the sojourners.
2. Site Visit
board of directors and volunteers visited northwest Yunnan on 9-13 November,
2013. The trip enhanced our understanding towards the circumstances
and the needs of the sojourners. Moreover, we followed up on our various
projects, as well as visited BCCSSC. This allowed us to discuss the
prospects and future needs of the sojourning communities.
of Guangming would like to extend our acknowledgment to our voluntary
legal adviser Vincent Chin, and Steve TW Lee & Co Certified Public
Accountants. for their assistance, as well as Stanley Ng for free web
hosting and website management services from this calendar year onward.
like to extend my personal thanks to our former adviser Dr Kim-kwong
Chan, former chairman Adelina Wong, and current adviser Eddie Li for
their guidance, and to our board of directors for their efforts and
not least, our work is futile without the support of our members, donors
and volunteers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
