My name is Gao Weidong. I come from Fugong county in Yunnan province. I’m turning 17 in few more months and is currently studying in a high school in Fugong county.

I am so grateful for your help and once again I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your kindness.

I come from a single-parent family. My dad passed away early and my mom endured so much ache in her heart. She brought my sister and I back to her hometown. Life goes on. No matter how tired she is, or how little money she can earn, she has no hesitation in raising her children. In order to give us a better life so that my sister and I have enough to eat and warmer clothes to wear, our mom spent most of her life working hard. As we are growing up, our mom is growing old. Now my mom is over 40 years old and she is suffering through physical pain due to exhausting labour through day and night.

When our family is facing financial issue, my mom can no longer afford my school fee, you show up on time and carries our burdens. Your kind gesture made me feel warmth and love. To me you are my second mom. I don’t know how to thank you enough for what you have done for me. I will study hard and achieve good grades to return your great favour. With your help, I am a little closer to my dreams. With your help, I am able to finish my studies, to fulfil my dreams and to achieve my personal goals.

"I like reading. My primary school teacher used to say that knowledge can change one's destiny. So born to a poor family, I hope that, through my own efforts, I can get admitted to the university and find a good job afterwards, and thus change my destiny and resolve family difficulties.“

I have a big family with my elderly grandparents, my father and mother, two younger sisters and a younger brother. Grandpa is 71 years old and too senile to do manual work. His job now is to take care of the grandchildren and keep the house. Grandma is 70 years old. She often suffers dizziness due to high blood pressure, which she always has to take medicine to control. We would feel relieved as long as she can take care of herself.

One of my younger sisters is a high school freshman this year and she's a quite good student. Both of us are in high school now and high school costs. Tuition, books, and living expenses all need money. My little brother and the other little sister are in the sixth grade of primary school. Tuition and books are free at that level because the government pays for them. However, we all need to pay for our living expenses, learning materials, and stationery.
