I visited one of the poorest area in GuangXi, China. The school kids here can barely afford life supplies, most of them were from single parent families because either the father or the mother abandoned them due to various reasons. For them, a few dollars are already enough for them to live for a few days. However even living in such a harsh life, they still wanted to go to school, because this is the only place where they can truly have fun and stop worrying about their lives at least for a few hours.
