Sichuan sunshine in the wintertime

May 15, 2012

Holding popcorn and sitting in front of a large screen to enjoy a movie may not such a big deal for children in urban communities. However, it can be a daydream for children who live in remote areas of China.

This winter, the daydream came true for 5,000 students from 25 boarding schools in the Sichuan Province.

Amway volunteers helped organized the Ba Ba Film Festival, named for the flat, open spaces where the films are shown.

Behind the scenes, Amway volunteers spent twelve days traveling through the mountains from place to place, carrying heavy equipment to set up the shows.

The volunteers dedicated themselves to the idea that “every drop of sweat could nurture a seed in a child’s mind, and help them grow faster to see the beauty of outside world.”
