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 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.
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.
"You are now being my relative in Datan village, and i am yours too in Hong Kong." I told one little kid in the village.
We find friendship on this Wu Zhi Qiao bridge. Love is unlimited. 40 volunteers from Hong Kong and the Mainland spent a week to built a bridge for remote villagers. Through team work and a same vision, we know we make a difference and a bridge of harmony!
