“There is only one kind of people, the ones who need care.”
In 2001, Mr. Sayling Wen founded Town and Talent Technologies Co., Ltd. with the intention of taking advantage of Internet technology for talents cultivation and employment guidance focusing on schools in remote rural areas, so as to help to get rid of the backwardness and poverty caused by the urban-rural gap. Afterwards, this concept was inherited by his son, Mr. Ted Wen , who initiated the West China Story project to carry on the cultivation of the local students.
Up to 2016, the West China Story project was carried out for 10 years. It encouraged local students to publish their works, pay close attention to the local development and record their self-fulfillment. A total of 235 schools with nearly 40,000 students participated in the project. And the stories created by the students accumulated to over 190,000, which is a precious asset of records of west China in the past decade.
In 2016, the West China Story Department was separated from Town and Talent Technologies Co. Ltd and became a new company—Talent and Story Technology (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. It carries forward the founder, Mr. Wen’s concept and adds new visions and directions to it and provides students with an open platform of story creation to enter into competition and communication, display their individualities and local characteristic and attract global attention.
