Poor kids' strong desire for school
Updated: 2005-11-03 17:55

A pupil from a primary school, mainly for children of rural laborers working in Harbin, capital city of Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, does his homework on his shabby desk with a tiny piece of pencil stub November 3, 2005. Most children in this school are from low-income migrant workers' families. The children wear threadbare clothes and use poor stationeries so as not to ask their families for money to buy new ones. It was found in a physical checkup that many of the 300 students even don't have socks and underwears and sometimes don't have money for lunch. The government, institutions and citizens are joining hands to help children from poor families to receive education.
