On June 20th, Mr. Hu Jining, Peng Dening (driver), a Fule middle school teacher Mr. Wang and my son Peter went to 8 students' home for an visit to their family situation. Among them, 4 are this year's high school graduates, 2 are middle school graduates, one in 7th grade, and one in 8th grade. Since we went down on Friday, the 7th and 8th graders are not at home so we talked with their family members. It happens that 4 are in the same `Chong' (冲)---a long narrow volley between two mountains, and the local teacher knows the area really well, we were able to visit 8 family instead of usual 5. They are indeed all very poor and appreciate the support very much. The following are brief descriptions of their situation.

His father does odd jobs nearby to support the family. He likes basketball and is outstanding in school, top 100 in Ningguo County/city. He is pretty confident with his college extrance exam and hopes to get into a top military university so he does not need to pay any tuition.

游昌平(Changping You), a 7th grade boy. He lives with his parents and an older sister in college. His mother has chronical disease and can not work. His house is clearly worse than his neighbors'.

He stayed in 3rd grade for 2 years. He lives with his parents and his older sister. His father has some chronical disease and can not work hard. The family have only one person's land (his mother's). To add to the misfortunte, his sister got injured and lost almost half a finger last December while working at Guan Dong (without contract yet, so the compensation is very limited). We did not see the boy as he was in school.
