Less-privileged kids get a gift

ABOUT 150 children from rural families in 26 provinces nationwide have been given a chance to visit the Expo today and tomorrow for free.

Amway (China) launched the activity as part of a four-day camp for kids of migrant workers and children from earthquake-hit Yushu County in Qinghai and other poor, rural areas across the country.

The participants reached the city yesterday and met one another at a school. They wrote blessings on ribbons to give to Expo volunteers.

The children will be split into groups and visit various pavilions. They will also take part in some interactive activities and witness some performances.

This evening, they are scheduled to attend the Youth Week opening ceremony and enjoy a music and dance performance staged by students from eight prestigious universities including Harvard and Oxford.

Tomorrow morning the children will visit Abilia Experience Center, an occupational experience project at the Expo. The center will give the kids an idea of what it's like to be a police officer, a doctor and a journalist, among other professions.

The summer camp ends on Wednesday.
