There are 250 million migrants in China at the moment, and another 300 million are expected to move to cities from the countryside. About 25 million of the migrants are children. What children need the most is access to education.

We visited the Compassion for Migrant Children (CMC) Dongba community center in Beijing. Migrant children, volunteers, and the NGO manager introduced the latest action they are taking to help migrant children.
