Thirty students from ethnic groups in Yunnan province participated in the Aramco Asia Youth Program for the first time in Beijing from July 25 to July 31.

The students from the Bai, Dai, Miao, Wa and Lisu ethnic groups, aged between eight and 12, come from needed families in the province in Southwest China. They mostly are "left-behind" children whose parents are unable to spend much time with them.

The program, supported by Aramco Asia and co-organized by China Daily, China Children's Press and Publications Group, the China Youth Development Foundation and the "Children's Love" Charity Fund, is designed to help students expand their horizons, meet new friends and enrich their knowledge.
