1. Description of Our Community
It is easy to see the people with old blue clothes, a large basket and pedal army shoes in Bacheng streets every day, they are waiting in each station, market, high streets and back lanes year after year, waiting for someone to call 'Hello, back pocket!', in the streets, loading and unloading goods, carrying goods back for the residents to keep family. We call them 'carrier'.

E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):
There is no network in our computer classroom accept the modern LAN in campus. 3 students’ home conditions are no good. Students with access to the web at home are Zero. Only teacher’s office has one computer can access to the web. So students used the computer at classroom to built website, and then copy the end works into the teacher’s computer with net capability.
4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Difficult: No network in computer classroom. It’s inconvenient to surf on the internet in teacher’s office It is the first time to use photoshop and Dreamweaver, we are not familiar with the operation. We are afraid of talking to strangers. The activity time is not enough seriously. Solution: we cannot access to relevant information, only have a simple text input. The teachers will use the computer in daily time, so we can look up information only in the teacher's idle time. We are asking the teachers while learning. The students encourage each other, and act the role among the students. Make full use of the weekend and lunch time
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Any work has the value and significance. We should not discriminate against them, and all of us are striving for happiness! We should respect the 'carriers', love them, no one has the right to discriminate against them!
