感恩有你,成长的路不再孤单


云南省文山市古木镇阿车村委会倮可母小学募书后记
作者:哈尔滨义工"言"

“倮可母”这三个字,或许很多人还不能准确地读出来。这是一个静谧地藏身于云南大山深处的小村庄;如果不是省级地图,我们可能连那一个标志着“倮可母”存在的小小的点都找不到。

可是就在这个小小的村庄里,还有一所倾尽三位老师心血的小学——倮可母小学。

这里属于壮族苗族自治州,与越南接壤,村子里很多人甚至连汉语都不会讲。他们这一辈子去过最远的地方,或许就是镇上的集市了。

尽管这样,家长们仍然坚持把孩子们送进学校,因为他们知道,孩子们不应该被那重重的大山限制住梦想飞越的翅膀。倮可母小学只有49名学生,可是对于仅有的三位老师来说,如何使孩子们更加快乐地享受校园生活,如何使孩子们学习到更多的知识、见识到更大的世界,如何不让那几十位父母失望,无疑是任重道远的。

孩子们特别珍惜课本。每天新学会的拼音和课文,他们读来甚至要比山歌更加悦耳。可是除了课本,他们几乎没看过什么课外书,更加不知道那课本上说的“大海”和山里那片湖有什么差别,不知道那听说可以带着人飞起来的“铁鸟”要是不是也要吃苞谷,不知道那住在几十层的高楼里面的人们每天要走多少节楼梯,是不是和山路一样难走……

可是他们却知道,在大山之外,有很多好心人和老师们一样愿意为了他们色彩斑斓却囿于重山之中的梦想而努力。而你所捐赠的那本书,就是帮助孩子们走出大山那块最坚实的阶梯!

6月17日,对于大多数人而言是一个如此平凡而普通的日子,但是对于倮可母小学的孩子们来说,这一天却值得纪念——在不到一天的时间里,OCEF网络募书组就通过募书微信群完成了150余册的目标任务,不仅再一次刷新了记录,优化的募书流程也得到了捐赠人的支持和认可,极大地提升了工作效率。

捐赠人热情积极的参与也让义工们倍感鼓舞。虽然那些孩子们成长的道路上我们并不能时时陪伴,但是书籍却可以帮助他们选择更加适合自己的方向,帮助他们找到把梦想变为现实的方法,帮助他们有勇气跨越遇到的每一个深壑沟渠——而这,也正是义工们一直深信不疑并且坚持做下去的动力,是每一位捐赠人无私付出背后的唯一期待。

或许,在未来的某一天,这些长大的孩子们也会像当初的你一样,郑重地为远方渴求知识的孩子选择一本书,把你给予的这份无私的爱传递得更加深远、悠长。


With an Appreciating Heart, It’s No Longer a Lonely Journey




Postscript: book donation for Luokemu 
Elementary School, Ache Village, Gumu
Township, Wenshan City, Yunnan Province

By Yan, volunteer from Harbin

For many people, it may be a challenge to pronounce the name of the village correctly. It’s a tiny, quiet village hidden deep in the mountains of Yunnan. On any map showing more than just the province, we would not even be able to find that little dot signaling the village’s existence.

Yet in this tiny village, there’s the Luokemu Elementary School, with three teachers who are whole-heartedly devoted to it.

The place belongs to an autonomous prefecture for the Zhuang and Miao minorities, adjacent to Vietnam. Many of the villagers don’t even speak Chinese. The farthest they’ve ever travelled is probably to the nearby township marketplace.

Even so, the parents persist in sending their kids to school, because they’re convinced that their kids’ dreams should not be held back by the mountain ranges. There are only 49 students in the school; still, it’s a challenging job for the three teachers to make sure that the kids enjoy school, acquire more knowledge, and be exposed to the outside world, so as to keep up with their parents’ hopes.

The kids really cherish their textbooks. To them, the new pinyin and texts they get to learn every day sound even better than songs. However, they have hardly any extracurricular books to read, so they don’t know whether the ocean they read about in the textbooks is any different from the lake in the mountain. They don’t know whether the “birds made of steel that carry people and fly” need to eat corns. They don’t know how many steps people who live in skyscrapers need to climb each day and whether those steps are as hard to climb as the winding mountain trails.

What they do know is that there are many warm-hearted people outside those mountains striving to help them fulfill their dreams, just like their teachers. That book you donated may just be the right ingredient to help these kids outgrow the mountains.

June 17th is quite an ordinary day to most people, but it’s a very memorable one for the kids in Luokemu Elementary. Within one day, OCEF’s Internet Book Donation Team accomplished their goal to raise 150 books through the WeChat Book Donation Group. Not only is the speed a new record, but the optimized donation process gained support from the donors, thus greatly improving efficiency.

The enthusiasm of the donors is a great encouragement to the volunteers. Even though we can’t accompany the kids every day in their growth, the books can help them identify the best approach to make their dreams a reality and develop the courage to overcome all obstacles they may encounter. This is truly the belief of every volunteer and the motivation for their continued effort, and the only expectation behind the selfless offerings from the donors.

One day in the future, maybe one of those kids, now all grown up, will carefully pick out a book for a longing kid in a remote area, just as you did today. The selfless love from you will be carried far into the future.
