Teaching in Huizhou Ink Ancient City

One mountain, one water, one Huizhou.

Located in the south of Huangshan City, Anhui Province, Huizhou, rich in natural resources of the Huangshan Mountains and the profound cultural heritage of Huizhou. The teaching place is located in Shexian County of Huizhou, which is the main production area of the four treasures of Huizhou ink and inkstone, and also one of the "four best-preserved ancient cities".

Most of the children here know very little about quality education. There is still an imbalance in the development of education here, and the knowledge in textbooks is not enough to pave the way for the children's future. The purpose of this mission is to help the local children to get in touch with diversified cultures and expand their horizons.

"Volunteering + Research", exclusively designed by ASDAN China, is an academic growth model that combines research-oriented learning and voluntary service. We refer to the authoritative theory of education, admission requirements of universities, 10 years of project experience, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to design our programs. ASDAN "Volunteering + Research" Programs cover four categories: Teach for Rural Areas, Community Support, Wildlife & Environment Conservation, and Cultural Heritage Conservation. Volunteers will experience rich and unique service scenarios and learn from different topics of research workshops concerning real social problems. We aim to guide volunteers to discover problems, propose solutions and report to the public, improve volunteers' research learning ability, meet the requirements of volunteers' personal growth and further education, and enhance their sense of social responsibility.

When it comes to voluntary services, admission officers of universities think highly of sincerely caring about society and comprehensive qualities and skills, such as proposers of innovative solutions, leaders of public welfare projects, and the continuity and depth of voluntary services. 62.1% of colleges would like to see applicants show a record report reflecting the whole process of volunteering. The world's top universities emphasize community commitment with problem-solving ability. Every high school student needs volunteering service experience that combines public welfare emotion and social problem-solving ability.
