Many under developed areas of China still struggle to provide lunches for hungry children attending school. It is a problem recognized by a group of North American Chinese graduate students. They are using their love of biking and social media, to help. Chinese graduate students from the charity group “One Way”, gathered by the iconic Golden Gate Bridge to send off seven cyclists who will bike from San Francisco all the way to Washington D.C.
The goal is to raise funds to pay for lunches for school children in China – a need the founders of the group saw up-close when they were undergraduate students in China working for local charities. CCTV’s Mark Niu has the story from San Francisco.
