Special Celebration for Teacher's Day

Today we celebrate Teacher’s Day!


On this occasion, I would like to send a greeting to a very special volunteer of Shanghai Sunrise - Teacher Jade Ding. To friends of Shanghai Sunrise and to our partner Shanghai Charity Foundation, she is well-known as “Ding Laoshi".


Having co-founded Shanghai Sunrise in 1996, Teacher Ding has been running the student selection process for 23 years, making her the organization’s longest serving volunteer. Every year, together with other volunteers, she visits up to 150 students at home, even on hot and rainy days.


Teacher Ding has also always been wonderful at keeping in contact with our students, helping them solve their problems and become more confident and independent. Shanghai Sunrise has sponsored nearly 3,000 students over the past 23 years, and she got to know nearly all of them! Many of them have already become parents, and to this day keep a close relationship with her.


On behalf of Shanghai Sunrise, our volunteers and our students, I would like to say: Thank You, Ding Laoshi!
