Located in the remote mountain areas of Guizhou Province in southwest China, Pengzhai Primary School has only four classes, from grade three to six. Most of its pupils are left-behind children, whose parents went to the cities in search of better job opportunities. They study in classrooms with rundown desks and chairs and without electric lighting. This July, a group of teaching volunteers from Tsinghua University, Guizhou University, Xueersi Education Group and club members from Paizhe.com visited the school and launched the public service program entitled "The One Class" there. They brought pupils colorful cameras, taught them how to use the machines and inspired them to capture the beautiful scenery in their mind on film. For the first time ever, the children's dreams became tangible. Through their lenses, we can now see a different world.
Following is the photo album of the pupils and their artworks of beauty.
