Xinzhuang is in Changping District of Beijing. Located at the foot of the Yanshan Mountains, this area has about 2,000 residents, 60% of whom are non-locals.

Je suis un volontaire.
Le plus souvent, la réponse que je reçois ressemble à «Vous faites juste quelque chose gratuitement? Fille tu devrais avoir un vrai travail » ou «  Alors tu distribues des dépliants tous les jours? »

Alors que tout a commencé par un réseau informel d’assistance aux populations dans le besoin, beaucoup de volontaires sont maintenant hautement organisés et jouent un rôle fondamental dans les initiatives humanitaires et de développement à travers les organisations, les clubs et les groups qui émergent dans le monde entier. En reconnaissance de leurs contributions, les gouvernements ont mis en place des actions pour promouvoir le volontariat en renforçant les politiques et les institutions et en augmentant le financement des structures de soutien aux volontaires.
