China Children and Teenagers' Fund (CTTF) inaugurated a public welfare project, Xiaoshifu, on December 21 at Beijing International Hotel to promote intangible national cultures.

The project was initiated by organizers of the fund last September, along with four celebrities including athletes and singers.

The special fund for cultural legacy protection and heritage will be used to offer free courses on Chinese culture for school students and members of the public with the help of 10 national level experts in crafts such as wood-block printing and painted bamboo curtains.

During the ceremony, organizers also premiered a series of documentaries on “children’s journeys in learning about Chinese craftsmanship.”

Each episode recorded two kids visiting an intangible cultural inheritor and studying their skills.

Vice Councilor of the CCTF Chen Xiurong and Secretary General of the CCTF Zhu Xisheng attended the event, along with nine public welfare ambassadors including singer Jing Gangshan, pianist Zhao Yinyin, former gymnast Liu Xuan, singer Gong Linna, actor Gao Xiaopan, billiard player Pan Xiaoting, actress Qin Hailu, actor Zhang Jincheng and actress Zhang Yan.
