Home Sweet Home: Owens Corning Celebrated its 6th Green IT Classroom in a migrants’ school in Wujiang

Home Sweet Home: Owens Corning Celebrated its 6th Green IT Classroom in a migrants’ school in Wujiang
On a joyful and sunny day in late November, Netspring and Owens Corning volunteers came to Wujiang migrant school to inaugurate their 6th Green IT Classroom.
Each Netspring opening is a great moment, but this one was very special, as the school had the honor to welcome Mr. Don Rettig, Owens Corning Director of Community Affairs, a guest who had crossed the Pacific Ocean to visit us. Volunteers from Owens Corning plants brought eco-friendly animation computer classes to the students and held a clay handicraft workshop for the children who literally loved it. Children also enjoyed exchanging a few words in English, as this encounter opened them new horizons and a desire to learn even more.
A Home is full of warm and love. With the help of volunteers, our children almost felt at home and learned how to make PPT during the IT class and composed digital drawings filled with buildings, trees and warm houses. In the handicraft workshop, the children’s imagination was so amazing, clay-homes were built and all of a sudden an entire village emerged, with families and their stories brought to life – Home Sweet home!  
"We would like to thank our partner Netspring who strongly supported us in our volunteering and communities projects over the past five years. We hope that these children could study happily and learn a lot in this Green IT Classroom. We also thank the school to give the computers we contributed a second life, that can help the students effectively.” 
Owens Corning Director of Community Affairs
“Today's classes are very unique and new, the IT class and handicraft workshop are those resources that we normally lack. We would like to thank the volunteers for igniting the children's imagination and making our migrants students feel the same warmth as if they were at home.
