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.

Her name is Yan Xia, and she was born to a poor peasant family in the southern Ningxia village of Zhang Jia Shu, also Ma Yan's birthplace. Yan Xia is now proud to be the first girl from her village to enter university in september after successfully passing her entry exam last month. She's also the first youth supported by our foundation to reach that level : Yan Xia has received a scholarship of the Children of Ningxia for the past three years, and we're very happy she's made it to the top.
Yan Xia has chosen to study telecom at the University of Ningxia, in the regional capital of Yinchuan. And she will continue to be supported by the Children of Ningxia association to pay for her college fees. We hope many more students will follow her path and help uplift this empoverished region.
