It is a social benefit organization initiated in Duke University yet conduct its business in China. It is dedicated to promoting reading among children in rural China by opening resourceful libraries and developing reading programs.  They strive to improve the environment for learning and personal development for underprivileged children in China and to foster their dreams so that their lives are not held hostage to existent economic, educational, and technological divides. Through close collaboration with local educators and parents, they aim to inspire enthusiasm for learning in rural children. I volunteered at one elementary school last summer in central China and help set up the library and make the library functioning in a sustainable way. This year I am helping in its recruitment and training team.
