As I have joined the team at Year One for four years now, I have befriended with other Wu Zhi Qiao’s teams from various universities. For many years we have remained good friends and continue to serve together since we love to help others. Through the project cycle, we have to collaborate with other teammates and teachers to build friendship which was very meaningful. My university life was enriched which attributed to the ‘companionship’ of the Wu Zhi Qiao experiences.
I would use ‘growth’ to describe my experience with Wu Zhi Qiao. I have witnessed self-growth and also development of my friends and the little village girls whom we have met at the Xiejia village.
I admire your chance for participating in the Wu Zhi Qiao project. Friends always asked me whether I would like to join the project this year? However, due to the work commitment, it was really hard to fulfill. I really hope that you would cherish the opportunity to participate in the project with mindfulness and practical outcomes. Live the dream and be committed.
Wu Zhi Qiao has enhanced my capacity to handle crisis and emergencies in a calm attitude.
Great time in the Wu Zhi Qiao project meeting new and passionate people to serve rural villagers together. We have many conversation about life, way of doing, and it was such a fruitful time to know people and learn new knowledge.
I had a meaningful time in Macha village. Through the experiential learning program, I've learnt farming technique, the process of making rammed earth building, digging ditches, installation of solar panel lamp stands and etc. I enjoyed very much the services experience in rural village.
The Earth School enhanced my understanding to the technique of rammed earth building, the lives of people and the local culture and heritage in Gansu province.
Truly experience the joy of harvest as a volunteer after the completion of project. We tried our best to make changes to the village. We are indeed very tiny. However, we devoted all of ourselves to improve the lives of local people.
