The retired teacher has volunteered to help students learn English for 18 years.

The local government helped renovate a storage area into two rooms where students can finish homework, read books and play chess.

Ye said many rural children live with their grandparents after their parents migrated to work in other cities. Despite the generous support for students, Ye is known for his thrift and still lives in a shabby cottage built 30 years ago. ECNS
