Being a Mentor
Melton Fellow Shi Haizhou is passionate about education and interacting with children. Three times a year he visits an elementary school in Lishui, a rural village in China, together with his Melton colleagues. He felt that going there only three times is too little to support their kids in their development, but the villages is located far away from Hangzhou so it is hard to go there more often.
Using Social Media helped him to mentor a child also from the distance. He is in constant exchange with one kid and enjoys his curiosity and the eagerness to learn more. Like this, Haizhou managed to extend the impact beyond the physical visits and to create a special bond of personal connection.
