the story

Untitled Document


A little known fact of life in China came to light when the diary of a 14-year-old peasant girl made it from a remote town in rural China made it to the bestseller lists in France. The book, which has now been published in 16 countries around the world, tells the story of a young girl who is desperate to stay in school, despite the problem of sky-high school fees, which her parents can not afford.

Support the team of Enfants du Ningxia at Hongkong’s Trailwalker !

On November 5 and 6, a team bearing the colors of Enfants du Ningxia successfully took part in the famous Mac Lehose Trailwalker race in Hongkong. This grueling 100-km race, organised yearly by the british development NGO Oxfam, is aimed at raisong funds for humanitarian causes.
Our team was made up of two teachers and two parents of pupils at the French International Lycee of Hongkong, who had volunteered to follow the tough trail in the New Territories, the zone in northern Hong Kong, directly bordering on mainland China. A support team largely made up of other teachers and parents from the french lycéee had been set up to provide logistical and sanitary support for the team. Deep thanks and congratulations to the volunteers thus combining a sportive challenge with one of active solidarity.
The ‘MacLehose race’ was the occasion for us to publicise the presence of the Association in Hong Hong, around our two ‘pillars’, Diane Michaud et Evonne Tsui. I joined the team doing the walk in mid-October for a photo sesssion and for an encounter with the Chinese language Hong Kong press, which devoted a number of pages to this initiative as well as to Ma Yan’s story and to the work of our Association.
This race can only be successful with active sponsorship. If you wish to support our team before or even after the race, you can contact our Hongkong representatives at the following e-mails :

Evonne Tsui : evonnetsui@yahoo.com
