古语云:“老吾老以及人之老，幼吾幼以及人之幼。”“云南希望工程”是 要去“育吾幼以及边陲地区苦难同胞之幼。” 我的爱人杨爱芳和我很荣幸的在 1995 年在云南昆明的“云南民族学院”担 任外教时开创了“云南希望工程”。不知不觉我们已经为这机构义务性的服 务了十五年之久。在这漫长的十五年间，承蒙许许多多富有爱心的亲友的热 心，忠诚的捐助和支持，“云南希望工程”能一年比一年的茁壮起来，项目 的活动范围，从云南昆明一个点而扩展到云南省的一些县市，如金平、澜沧、 丽江、香格里拉等县，获得各种形式经济支助的学生达每年三百多人次。希 望小学建造计划亦达到超出意料的成就，十五年来共建造了村寨希望小学 二十三所。总之，“云南希望工程”对祖国云南边陲地区少数民族教育作可 观的贡献，给许多贫困孩童带来了一个更好的明天。
To paraphrase a famous Chinese saying: One should care for other’s aged the way we care for our own aged; nurture other’s young the way we nurture our own young. Yunnan Project Hope aims to provide educational opportunities for the less fortunate fellow Chinese’s children (especially the female children) the way we provide for our own children. Hopefully, in doing so, a brighter to-tomorrow could be brought about for these needy children from the more remote parts of Yunnan Province, China.Over the last fteen years, thanks to the generosity of many loyal supporters, the Yunnan Project Hope was able to grow and to accomplish to beyond our wildest expectation. For example, we built 23 small village schools and dormitories, our nancial support programs give out nancial assistance every year an average of 300+ students.In order to discourage the old tradition of not sending girls to school, we reserve half of the awards to the female students to entice them to come. It is very heartening to see how our efforts have impacted local communities.As a result of our encouragement, some of the schools we built now have more female students than males. In a word, Yunnan Project Hope has made a signi cant contribution to the rural education in remote areas in Yunnan.
孔子曰:“授之以鱼不如授之以渝”。我们兄弟姐妹 8 人，一起经历过两次动乱; 我们的家也被破坏过两次。但是我们的父母说过:“没有人可以把知识从你 的大脑中拿走”。如果没有教育，就没有我们每个人的今天。现在让我们一 起努力来帮助更多的孩子接受教育。通过教育，让更多的孩子有机会来实现 他们的“希望”。上天保佑!
Confucius once said: “Give a man a sh, he survives on day. Teach him how to sh, he will survive the rest of his life!” Our brothers and sisters, all eight of us, have gone through political turmoil twice. Our family wealth was destroyed twice. Our parents said:”Get an education, no one can take it away from your brain.”We all would not be where we are today without Education! Now we are “paying forward” to keep the wider privileged children. Let the children have an opportunity to ful ll their “Hope” through better education! God Bless!
Each of us forward not more than three generations, are farmers born, can have today’s small achievements, thanks to step by step progressive education, children in the mountains want to come out to understand the outside world and change the fate, and only education can help achieve. Hope that more people to join the Yunnan Project Hope for the Minorities, or publicity, or participate in the annual itinerary, or donate a little mind, do charity is not necessarily the rich patent, focusing on participation. In the every manpower and conditions, to help those children in remote mountainous areas, so that the world will become more beautiful.
作为研究过宇宙几天的人，虽没搞出什么大名堂但悟出了一个信念:“人生 苦短，及时行乐，及时行善”。五月与嘉东，海生和小郭陪 Arthur 参跑大连 马拉松为希望工程筹款，现场上云南选手与云南观众一句 “我们云南人民、 我们云南山区的小朋友们感谢你们” 的话使我激动无比。这次云南行，每当 董胜总讲这句话时，我内心暖洋洋的，同时感慨万千。衷心感谢关心云南少 数民族地区教育发展、关心公益事业的兄弟姐妹们，大爱无疆!
As a study of the universe a few days of people, although not come up with any big name but realized a belief: “life is short, timely happiness, timely good.” In May, Jia Dong, Haisheng and Xiao Guo to accompany Arthur Senate Dalian Marathon for the hope that the project fundraising, the scene of the Yunnan players and the Yunnan audience “We are Yunnan people, we Yunnan mountain children thank you” words make me excited. This time Yunnan line, whenever Dong Sheng always say this sentence, my inner warm i would like to express my heart felt thanks for the education and development of the Yunnan Project Hope the brothers and sisters who care about the public welfare undertakings.
从大美的九寨沟山上下来，看到大家的交流，非常感人!我也非常感谢嘉东 四年前将云南少数民族希望工程介绍给我，受他慈悲情怀的感染，我也在我 母亲的故乡广西老革命根据地凤山县设立了“美云教育基金”，从 2012 年 开始每年资助约 50 多名品学兼优的贫困学生。但去年受嘉东和 Tim 的邀请 参加了云南少数民族希望工程的丽江公益行后，我更为杨主席一家人 20 年 默默从事教育慈善的精神所感动，同时也感受到这个组织所从事工作的高尚 和伟大感谢杨主席、嘉东和 Tim 树立的榜样力量，很荣幸能和你们这样不 光见到自己，见到天地，还时时刻刻见到众生的朋友一起从事慈善事业!

This year, we jointly donated RMB 400,000 (200,000 for the school rebuild, and put other 200,000 to the fund pool) to support Toutai UG School to improve the educational environment of school and enthusiasm of children education acceptance of the poverty-stricken areas. In the future, old and new colleagues of UG will pay attention to support education of poverty-stricken areas, and wish our country a better tomorrow.
