Reflections from 2015 Volunteer Understanding Tour

Mei Ly  Hsing: I was pleasantly surprised by the discipline, the efficiency, and the hardworking of the PEACH staff in Kunming. The passion and confidence the staff demonstrated toward their work really impressed me.  I appreciate all the arrangement before and during this Volunteer Understanding Trip. Thank you, PEACH staff.  I realize how hard you worked, and I hope you never give up, just like our PEACH children. The PEACH children need our support, and they need your help too. Let’s work together to help them.

We visited numerous families and had better understanding of these children’s background during this trip. I am deeply touched by what I saw. When I was growing up, I lived many years in a temple, where many people came and pray for their families and often hoping that Buddha could offer a helping hand. I learned a lot of about people’s inner thoughts and effect of poverty through these prayers. Many of my playmates then were children from poor farmers families, so, “poverty” was nothing usually to most of us.  The problem was these children and their parents do not have the capacity to think and plan for a better future.

In conclusion, we need to work hard and make sure our PEACH children have the positive goal in life – and get well educated. Let’s help them to help themselves.

Phoebe Chen and Nei Chen: Thank you very much for the Understanding Tour in Li Jiang. This trip was carefully planned and thoughtfully followed through with every detail confirmed and reconfirmed.
Nei and I were extremely happy and surprised to find out what Peach Foundation is all about.
We enjoyed meeting the students, the teacher and their parents (or parent). We enjoyed visiting the school and their homes.
We enjoyed the five days living, eating and talking with Peach Foundation staff, old member and new volunteers from US, China, and Taiwan.
Now, when I open Peacher (
培志人), I can truly say that I understand every word they are saying, because I was there, I saw and talked to the kids too.
Sonia, I can see your passion and pride in helping the students and I want to thank you again for a job well done.
