Sowing in Gansu

Mr. Ran Shucang

The principal of a primary school in a poverty-stricken village in the mountainous area of Gansu Province, who built the school for the children in the mountainous area more than ten years ago, destroyed his home to build the school, His spirit of self-denial has won him various honors such as "National Advanced Individual in Teachers' Ethics", "National Top Ten Outstanding Workers", "National Advanced Worker" and so on. Although he was suffering from bone cancer, he did not give up his care for the poor, widowed and out-of-school children. He still practiced the educational ideal of " education for everyone, irrespective of background", maintained the orphanage to take care of the poor and unfortunate children, and continued to sow seeds of love on the yellow soil.
