Volunteer in China with WLS International

Volunteer in a Kindergarten in Fengyan, China

This program is based in the beautiful mountain area in the North East of Guangxi province in the small village of Fengyan. This village is a mainly Yao Minority community of approximately 1300 people, many of whom are farmers.

Beyond the big cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou are the rural communities in China. These are often poor, existing on subsistence farming to earn a living. Fengyan is one such community. It is a small but well preserved village in Guangxi province in the South of China 42kms from Yangshou and 104 kms from the city of Guilin. It typifies the traditional rural way of life in China.

You can join the program from a minimum 2 weeks up to several months. You need to arrive on the Sunday before the start date of the program at Guilin Liangjiang International Airport. Collection from the airport and return to Guilin airport is included in the price of the program.

The first week of your programme will include a Cultural Immersion week, to ensure you get the most out of your stay and get into the ‘swing of things by learning about the culture, arts, history and Chinese language.

Volunteering at the Kindergarten

Beyond the big cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou are the rural communities in China. These are often poor, existing on subsistence farming to earn a living. Fengyan is one such community. It is a small but well preserved village in Guangxi province in the South of China 42kms from Yangshuo and 104 kms from the city of Guilin. It typifies the traditional rural way of life in China. The people are hardworking – it is not unusual for the farmers to go to their fields at 6.30 a.m. and not return until 7.00 p.m. as they seek to provide food and money for their families.

My volunteering program in China with WLS International was great and I learned a lot. My coordinator was excellent. She was very helpful all the time. She also introduced me to other WLS volunteers with whom I had a great time. I enjoyed the program and I would do it again!
