The Bridge of Dream is funded by Bailey Yang and assisted by Ms. Yinyqin Tian, who are helping the impoverished kids in an isolated area of China.


The Small River school was in need of 160 tables and chairs. Each set was $45, and  Bailey was able to visit and donate 30 sets to the school. Since then all the rest of the required sets have been donated.

     The old  student desks and chairs had been used for so many years that many of them are severely chipped and damaged. 

     At Christmas, 2017, Bailey went back to China, and with Mr. Jin You's help, they drove to the Small River Elementary School to visit the students and make a donation.



On the desk, it says, "American Chinese Bailey Yang donated".

The Small River School principal, Mr. Shi, applied all of my donation to the music room where the students have music classes.


 Greeting the Students 

On December 26, 2017, we drove to Small River Elementary School. I greeted the students who were attending and then introduced myself and this project.

Loving person Jin You is driving

Driving to the school

Crossing the mountain

After we arrived in Wongan county, we had to cross two mountains to get to the elementary school.

Narrow mountain road

It is not a one-way road, but a narrow one-lane road with only room for one vehicle at a time.


      160 desks and chairs were delivered and ensembled.

             Beautiful new desks are all set. I was able to donate 30 sets. The students are sitting at them now.

  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~                                    Introduction to Houchang  Village  

      Houchangvillage is in Wong An county, Guizhou plateau, which is surrounded by high mountains. This county has no paved roads, but only rough dirt roads.  It takes kids there an hour to walk to school every day; if it's a rainy day, it takes them even longer.

      Since this poor county has no proper transportation, many of the parents have to go to the city to find jobs. Most parents cannot earn enough money to support their families, and the kids have to depend on their grandparents for their living and educational expenses. 

      Even though life is very difficult for families there, it does not stop the kids' desire for knowledge; at this poor village they are always struggling to get the best education possible. The kids there really need help for living expenses, tuition, school supplies and clothing. 

      This website is a bridge to support the mountain kids in reaching their dreams. Contributing financially to the kids in need will aid them both materially and emotionally in achieving their long-term goals.

Mengyao Xi (8 years old)

     Mengyao's family depends on her father, Gui Xi,who is the only one working and supporting the family. Mother Yaohui Chen stays home, cooks for the family, and does limited fieldwork. After their grandparents passed away, the family also had to take care of Mengyao 's Uncle Xiang Xi , who is an epileptic.

      Mengyao's brother Xiaobiao Xi  is a sophomore at Guiyang Medical College. College is very expensive, and the family is in dire need of assistance.



Xueting Hong, 2nd grade

     2nd grade student Xueting Hong has a younger brother and sister. They all depend on their grandfather at home.

Their father, Zhonggui Hong, and mother, Youlan Zhang, both have to go outside the village to find jobs. Because this is a mountain village, no jobs can be found in this area.

The parents can never make enough money to support their big family, which means that their lives are always very difficult.



Huanhuan li, 5th grade

    Huanhuan Li has been one of the top three students at the school since she was in the first grade. She lives with her older sister, her younger sister, her brother, her mother, and her grandfather.  Her father works part-time out of town, and her mother stays at home with no job.

    Her grandfather is often ill and has to pay for high medical bills every year. 



Huifang Xi, 4th grade

      Huifan' s family has 5 members. Father Xiaohong Xi works full-time out of town. The whole family depends on the father's low income. Mother Renli Yang stays home to take care of the grandfather, who is often very ill. 

     Huifang has a younger brother who is in 2nd grade. 

      Huifang is a good, polite student at the school and studies very diligently. She is also caring: she helps other classmates.
