On June 24th 2019, I went to Nepal with my schoolmates on an aid education trip with the purpose to help and teach students in a primary school in the countryside of Kathmandu. The school’s image is as the following picture.
This is the school’s playground
The Salyansthan Secondary School lies in the beautiful mountains named Kathmandu, looking pretty much like the countryside of Xi’an. 這所名為薩蘭森的學校坐落在加德滿都山區，是一個美麗的地方，它看起來很像西安的鄉村。
Views around the school
The students there are all younger than 12 years old. Although there are tiny differences between the Nepal’s and Chinese’s education system, it isn’t a big problem. The school has three classes -- grade5 and grade7 are in one class, grade 3 and 4 are in one class and grade 2 is one class. There are about fifty students in total and most of them haven’t got a complete family. Some of them lost their mother and some of them lost their father, or both. 學校里的學生都在12歲以下，尼泊爾和中國的年級制度差別不大。學校共有三個班，總共大約有五十名學生，他們中的大多數人都沒有一個完整的家庭。有的失去了母親，有的失去了父親，或者雙親皆無。
The school is built to help those poor and unfortunate children, so we are not the only people to help them. They have seen many different people from various countries wearing different clothes and having different religions. They watch the world with their own eyes just like we do, but the difference is when we see the suffering and injustice, all we do is to complain about how unfair the world is and how poor the disabled are rather than to seek a way to help. However, the kids there know the problems and have realized that they are not as good as us in many ways, so they study very hard to enrich their mind. Although the kids there are always happy and active, they are very quiet and concentrated when they are studying. No matter which class they are in, they always keep there mind on their own work and try to do the best. Whenever they have questions, they will raise their hands and ask the teachers to explain. 這所學校，這位擁有大愛的校長，就是為了幫助這些不幸的孩子而存在的。而我作為中國的志愿者代表，我們也不是唯一幫助他們的國際友人。每年會有來自不同國家的志愿者來這里。不同的國家，不同的服飾，不同的宗教，不一樣的文化。這里的孩子用自己的眼睛看世界，去理解世界。當我們看到世界上所有的痛苦和傷害，也許我們所做的只是抱怨這個世界是多么的不公平，殘疾人是多么的貧窮，我們中的大多數人并沒有尋求幫助的方法。但是尼泊爾這所貧困小學的孩子們看到了問題，他們首先意識到在外界環境方面條件有限，所以他們更加倍努力學習以豐富他們的心靈世界。孩子們總是很快樂和活躍，但是他們在學習的時候非常安靜和專注。不管他們在哪個班孩子？他們總是主動去想自己的任務并去做到最好。當他們有問題時，他們一定會舉手問老師。
There is one kid who impressed me most. As the picture shows, the first one on my right (the boy with his hand rising). He is 12 years old and he is homeless. He wondered on the street every day and helped doing cleaning for others just for foods, drinks and a place to sleep. Until the principal found him and offered him the opportunity to study in her school. He is a math genius. I think he is the smartest kid in the school. 有一個給我印象最深的孩子，就是我右邊的第一個(舉著手的男孩)。他12歲了，沒有家。他每天在街上徘徊思考，也幫助他人做一些家務，這樣可以換來一些食物和一個能睡覺的地方。這種狀態一直持續到校長找到他并帶他去學校學習。他是數學天才。我知道他是最聰明的孩子。
These children are also very talented, and have many hobbies like drawing. They can draw all kinds of pictures and be able to imitate pictures of their textbooks. 這些孩子也很有天賦。他們有許多愛好，比如繪畫，涂鴉等，他們可以繪制各種圖片，并能夠從教科書中模仿繪畫。
To sum up, the trip is more meaningful for me instead of for the kids. I have learnt more from them than they do from me. The spirit of never giving up and the will of trying harder to live really inspired me. Therefore, to make the world and ourselves better is exactly we should do.
