“Since the launch of our project in 2019 and the on-site school teaching activities in Apr., 2020, more than 30 volunteers have participated in it, benefiting 300+ children. The look in the eyes of the students who are eager to learn coding has inspired our volunteers to overcome various difficulties during the pandemic to teach students programming and persist till now. We are pleased to witness that the children have achieved outstanding results in 2021 and 2022 Franco-Chinese Environmental Month Students’ Digital Drawing and Art Competition. Today's ceremony is a new beginning, and we hope that more volunteers will participate in the future to help students develop their creativity while learning, thus throw a positive influence to the kids’ future.”

After ceremony, Cisco’s volunteers shared the fun time with the students, having handicraft and coding classes together. Children actively involved and innovatively used clip art to present a more environment-friendly planet.


In the coding class, the volunteers explained the knowledge of quadrants step by step, and then led to "how to make a horse jump on the computer", the children's curiosity was instantly ignited and exclaimed, they couldn't wait to do the same on the computer, and learned a new skill in just one lesson. It's no wonder that programming is a hobby class that students rush to take.


Keep going - We will continue to explore innovative ways to solve the problems of environmental protection and educational resources.

We would like to thank all our supporters who have contributed their used computers and electronic equipment to our Green IT Programs over the past few years.
