INCLUDED celebrates two-year anniversary of China’s first container community centre

June 2013 │ China

On June 9, a team of seven Deutsche Bank volunteers organized a visit to INCLUDED Heiqiao Centre in Beijing to celebrate with the center’s two-year anniversary with the migrant children who attended activities there.

Partially funded by Deutsche Bank, INCLUDED Heiqiao Centre was the first community center built from shipping containers which aims to help China's urban migrant children by offering social and educational programmes.

The five containers-turned-classrooms of different colours serve as an after-school hub for young students living in one of China’s largest migrant worker communities. One of the incentives to build the center using shipping containers was that if migrant workers move their community to another place, the centre could follow and continue providing services for their children.
