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. 这所名为萨兰森的学校坐落在加德满都山区，是一个美丽的地方，它看起来很像西安的乡村。
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. 学校里的学生都在12岁以下，尼泊尔和中国的年级制度差别不大。学校共有三个班，总共大约有五十名学生，他们中的大多数人都没有一个完整的家庭。有的失去了母亲，有的失去了父亲，或者双亲皆无。
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. 这所学校，这位拥有大爱的校长，就是为了帮助这些不幸的孩子而存在的。而我作为中国的志愿者代表，我们也不是唯一帮助他们的国际友人。每年会有来自不同国家的志愿者来这里。不同的国家，不同的服饰，不同的宗教，不一样的文化。这里的孩子用自己的眼睛看世界，去理解世界。当我们看到世界上所有的痛苦和伤害，也许我们所做的只是抱怨这个世界是多么的不公平，残疾人是多么的贫穷，我们中的大多数人并没有寻求帮助的方法。但是尼泊尔这所贫困小学的孩子们看到了问题，他们首先意识到在外界环境方面条件有限，所以他们更加倍努力学习以丰富他们的心灵世界。孩子们总是很快乐和活跃，但是他们在学习的时候非常安静和专注。不管他们在哪个班孩子？他们总是主动去想自己的任务并去做到最好。当他们有问题时，他们一定会举手问老师。
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. 有一个给我印象最深的孩子，就是我右边的第一个(举着手的男孩)。他12岁了，没有家。他每天在街上徘徊思考，也帮助他人做一些家务，这样可以换来一些食物和一个能睡觉的地方。这种状态一直持续到校长找到他并带他去学校学习。他是数学天才。我知道他是最聪明的孩子。
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. 这些孩子也很有天赋。他们有许多爱好，比如绘画，涂鸦等，他们可以绘制各种图片，并能够从教科书中模仿绘画。
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.
