We are social workers, adhering to the mission of "creating a friendly environment for young people to grow up". We are concerned that in the beautiful Xiamen , there are still many urban village communities. Entering the village in the city, the eyes are full of narrow roads, dimly crowded rental houses, wandering children ... These children are called "migration children", and live here as their parents come to work in the building. The cultural desert and hidden dangers of the village in the city may leave irreversible regrets. Therefore, we decided to build a public welfare library to create a safe and healthy social environment for children.
We conducted a survey on the data of Xiamen's urban villages . So far, there are only 42 urban villages remaining in Xiamen Island , most of which are concentrated in Huli District, and there are a large number of urban villages outside the island. There are only three public libraries that have been built . The Jingjing Community in Jimei District covers an area of 0.32 square kilometers, with a local registered population of 2116 people, but a floating population of nearly 30,000 people. It is one of the largest gathering places for migrant workers.
Since September last year , we have begun to build the Jingjing Public Welfare Library. This is a public welfare project that totally relies on public fundraising. It has been launched on the Lingyin fundraising platform and Tencent public welfare platform, and has received attention from all walks of life . After more than seven months of fund-raising, the Jingjing Public Welfare Library was finally completed with the support of many caring people, and it will be opened soon!
At the same time, we are still facing a grim reality -the lack of books. Although many caring people donated books, and we also organized fund-raising activities to purchase books, the number of books was still very small. To this end, we hereby call on the caring people in society to " donate idle books to create a dream world for the children in the village ! "
April 23 is World Book Day. In this day of advocating "reading without borders, no matter how precious or cheap", we hope that every child can share the joy and satisfaction of reading no matter where he is. Maybe the book you have been hiding in for a long time is the secret garden where the children regard it as a treasure; maybe the wisdom and knowledge you get in the book is the lack of warmth and strength of the children here. Share the joy of reading, let the book connect you with the children of the village in the city, pass the reading and the love, and heal a city warmly.
Books we collect:
1. Various textbooks , reading materials , reference books suitable for young people
2. A variety of interesting health reading materials that expand knowledge
