Sharing Dreams of Minority Students: Faurecia Opened its 8th Green IT Classroom in Liuzhou, Guangxi Province

Sharing Dreams of Minority Students: Faurecia Opened its 8th Green IT Classroom in Liuzhou, Guangxi Province
Crossing mountains and rivers, Netspring team came to the newly supported rural school located in the distant Miao Autonomous County of Liuzhou, Guangxi Province. On December 3rd, 2019, Faurecia inaugurated its 8th “Netspring Green IT Classroom" and an “Art Classroom” in collaboration with a partner organization. Mr. Tardif, President of Faurecia China, and enthusiastic volunteers attended the inauguration ceremony of the two new classrooms and enriched the school's education resources.
"Today, we are excited to come to the beautiful town of Liuzhou in Guangxi, and spend a meaningful day with local children. Since entering the China market, Faurecia has actively advocated corporate social responsibility and made positive impacts to environmental protection and education improvement. Our Green IT Program is in its 7th year now, and I hope such a meaningful program will develop even further, owing to our Faurecian’s care and love. Thanks for all for your participation and contribution."
Mr. Tardif, President Faurecia China
On the opening day, the children dressed in colorful traditional costumes and offered us happy smiles and enthusiastic dances to honor their guests. This was their most beautiful celebration in years, since they so rarely get visits. As the volunteers initiated them to Scratch coding but also to environmental-friendly concepts painting, the kids’ bright eyes were filled with intelligent curiosity as they explored the unknown. They eagerly shared their dreams with us:
“In the future world, cars could fly in the sky, and at a very fast speed. We not only could live on Earth, but also explore the Galaxy.”
"My greatest wish is to be able to enter the national secondary school, and then walk through the streets of the county town!"
Volunteers also expressed their feelings after this activity:
"With these activities, I saw a real gap between urban and rural areas, some of the children here even didn’t well use the mouse, I hope that the local children could study hard and change their fate."
"Students are very interested in animation, they also mention they’d like to be designers and astronauts when they grow up, the future is theirs. I hope the children could seize the present time, study new knowledge and go to see the outside world!"
