In 2001, Mr. Sayling Wen founded Town and Talent Technologies Co., Ltd. with the intention of talents cultivation and employment guidance focusing on schools in the remote rural areas and taking the advantage of the Internet technology. The objectives are to help ridding of the backwardness caused by the urban-rural gap. Later on, this endeavour has been continued by his son, Mr. Ted Wen , who initiated the West China Story project and established Talent and Story Technology (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. to carry on the cultivation of the local students.
The decade-longWest China Story project encourages local students to publish original stories as a way of promoting local development and of recording life experiences and self-accomplishments. 235 schools and nearly 40,000 students have participated in the project. Over 190,000 stories have been published so far.
