  • A group of DTZ employees went to Chengdu Yuren Elementary School to set up its Green IT classroom for the underprivileged children of migrant workers. The school headmaster Meng, DTZ China CEO- Zhang Guozheng, and officials from the local education bureau made speeches respectively during the opening ceremony.

    DTZ entered the China market long  ago with a mission to launch a large scale  urbanization project. Previously, DTZ conducted a survey on migrant worker children in different cities across China. The survey shows that migrant workers lead hard lives in the cities they move to,,and their children do not enjoy full citizenship rights. Most of the migrant workers’ children face challenges after the 9-year compulsory education program such as relocating to their hometowns for further studies, or dropping out of te formal education system.

  • On June 1st, the Netspring team set off to Nanchong with the purpose of revisiting one of PwC (Price Waterhouse Coopers) sponsored mountain village schools and holds an IT activity with three corporate volunteers from PwC to celebrate nationwide Children’s Day.

    For the activity, Netspring gave training to the volunteers using materials created by Thirst for Water, an NGO based in China that promotes awareness about water conservation. The next morning, Netspring and PwC set off on a three hour journey from Chongqing to the countryside surrounding Nanchong. Xincitang Primary School is located in a stunning hillside village, and is the school of 58 local village children. We were warmly welcomed by the headmaster who drove down the winding alleyways on his scooter to meet us at the foot of the hill and help us find our way to the school. When we finally arrived, we were greeted by the curious children who were eager to talk and show us around their school. 

  • On 18th of May, 15 volunteers from Owens Corning made the long trip to Bozhi Migrant School located in the outskirts of Beijing, to mark the opening of their new Green IT classroom. The company volunteers came from Tianjin, Beijing and Shanghai, holding two activities at the school: an IT class in the new computer room, followed by a handicraft activity.

    Located in the remote area of Beijing, Bozhi school is a non-governmental funded school severing the children of Beijing’s migrant population - the thousands of unregistered migrant labourers who have flocked to the city over the last decade. Affordable and based in the communities where migrant workers live, the school offers an attractive alternative to the more expensive, government-run schools.

  • Netspring went with Joseph Shi from the Austalian Chamber of commerce to visit Luxu Gaoxing Primary School, Wujiang. The school, sponsored by Faurecia, is currently in its third year of the Netspring Green IT classroom programme and it was good to see the students making use of the computers. Netspring also had a pilot introduction, to the kids  and teachers, of an open-source coding software adapted to children. Several studies demonstrate that learning code improve children self confidence and problem solving capacities. The students enjoyed experimenting with this, learning how to do basic code to move characters around a screen, adding sound effects.  This is in line with Nestpring mission to bringing more than just harderware but also addtionnal eductionnal value through computers.

     

  • This is already the 4th time AmCham supports Netspring in organizing the collection of obsolete computers and electronic devices from their members. Donations will benefit to the Green IT classroom program as well as eco-friendly dismantling of Electronic devices.

     A total of 15 companies participated, until now 113 computers have been collected within which 63 will be refurbished.  We are still waiting for additional computers from members which could not join the event. Aside from the computers, 151 kg of other equipments (printer, screens, cables,…) were collected to be sent to dismantling in a certified factory. A box of toys from Girl Scout will be handout to children in the schools during Netspring revisits.
