(Xinhua) -- Kenya’s University of Nairobi Confucius
Institute (CIUON) on Thursday hosted slum children in order to
expose them to Chinese culture and language.
Xiao Shan, director of CIUON said that
children from the Emmanuel New Hope Rescue Center in Nairobi’s
Kayole low-income area experienced Chinese calligraphy, paper
cutting as well as food and other forms of Chinese culture.
“We want to ensure that children from
disadvantaged backgrounds are also exposed to new and unique
cultures,” Xiao said.
The event was organized by the
Emmanuel New Hope Rescue Center, Chinese Embassy in Nairobi,
CIUON, as well as the Chinese mobile brand Infinix as a
demonstration of common commitment to caring for children.
