-- Created by sheilaz413

The Dandelion School is a middle school devoted to the better education of children from some of Beijing's migrant families. Located in Beijing's southern suburbs, the school was established in 2005. Its aim to provide a healthy and happy environment for its students to live and grow. At the Dandelion School, the children are provided with housing, food, and the attention and care that they deserve, allowing them to be free from their otherwise daily pressures of survival.

This was also the first real "story" that I covered.
