PROJECT DESIGN FOR LEFT-BEHIND CHILDREN
My graduation is based on a personal interest in a current Chinese social issue. Due to China’s urbanization process a large number of villagers moved from the countryside to the city. This phenomenon created the so-called ‘left- behind children’ who stay in their hometown while one or both of their parents have left to live and work in the city. Through interviews and a research of the daily life in one of these typical left-behind children villages, Yuxian Village, I found out that the relationship between the different generations (children, parents, grandparents) is rather weak. Therefore my aim is to reconnect the three generations, and help enhance the self-esteem of the children.
