What are Washington, D.C.’s scholars trying to accomplish?
The Dandelion School is an elementary and middle school for children of migrant workers, located in Daxing District, Beijing. After spending a weekend teaching English, participating in school activities, and bonding with the students of the school, we noticed the severe need for new facilities in order to better serve the students. We are here to support and raise money for the students, the Dandelions.
