    • Caution • Rules which should be observed during participation – Don’t hold formalized welcome ceremony and donation ceremony – Don’t interrupt local inhabitant’s lives and their normal teaching – One kg more doesn’t carry out donation activities relating to money like scholarships; this kind of activity can be carried out on behalf of one’s own
    • The belief of voluntourism • Travel comes first and public welfare second – Carry one kg more is something that you can do by just a slight effort on the trip; if you do it, you can gain a lot. However, if you don’t do it, you’re not going to be disgraceful. – It’s not necessary to take public welfare as the aim of travel, otherwise it will bring impractical expectation. It’s easier to do the things well if you consider it in a casual way.
    • The belief of voluntourism • Communication comes first and material second 。 – It’s not necessary to pay much attention to the small gifts that you bring to the children. Compared with a small amount of goods and material, a thorough, “What children like best is not our equal and face-to-face toys, but the time when they are with conversation can create us” 。” more positive effect on the growth of the children.
    • The belief of voluntourism • Travel with delight and keep smiling – We always sigh over the harsh condition in which the children are living. However, a sigh can’t change the reality. Contrarily, a smile can make it easier to approach and understand the children. – No matter being poor or rich, every child should enjoy a happy childhood. Voluntourism should be interesting, Helping the children go to school is not necessarily sorrowful.
    • The belief of voluntourism • Share and take action are also important – If you think it right to do a good deed without leaving your name, then those children may possibly obtain your help only all their lives. Contrarily, if you share the information and experience you get from the trip, not only the children and school can receive more attention and help, but you can also make friends with those who have the same belief with you. – Good deeds should be publicized as well as done.
