Shuang-Yue Xu (girl, 11 yr) a 4th grader in Huan-Kou Elementary School.

(with her teacher and principle)

She lives with her parents. Unfortunately, her father of close to 60 yr. is physically weak. Her mother is mentally disabled and is not even sure about her own age (39 ). Without her teacher, she would have already dropped out of school. She has paid no school fees this year at all. She has to walk a couple of kilometers to school everyday and often has no lunch money (1 yuan or just 12 cents). Sometimes, her teacher gives food to her, other times, she has no lunch. I gave her teacher 50 yuans (6 dollars) after the interview to take care of her lunches this semester.

This is a typical announcement posted in schools three days before the actual distribution of the financial aid. It tells the public that which students get financial support from the Ningguo Sino-US Education Association and Hometown Education Foundation. It encourages the public to call the charity if there is any fraud.
