Time: 2013-05-25

In the “April 20” earthquake in Ya’an, the Miaomiao Kindergarten in Taiping Town, Lushan County was severely damaged. The members of the Cottage Qingzhu and Sister Wang had done the personal visits and communication for the project. In January 2014, the transitional “paper tube kindergarten” with an area of about 126 square meters was successfully completed. This kind of “paper tube construction” is a new type of building system designed by the Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. This public welfare project was initiated by the “Smiling Rainbow” folk charity, and obtained the support from the Shigeru Ban Architectural Firm, Mowo, School of Architecture of Southwest Jiaotong University, Chengdu Yunji Architecture Design Consulting Company and others. In May 2014, the kindergarten opened and admitted 34 students in the first batch.
