The photographs were taken in the western part of country and record the changes in living conditions of a woman called Qin Chunju before and after the aid given by the project.

Among the pictures, 11 have been modified into a dynamic graph with new media technologies to give viewers an immersive experience.

On the second floor of the exhibition hall, a timeline graph looks back on the history of the project, including its charitable campaigns over the years.

The exhibition uses a combination of images, films, statistics, text, objects and other media, such as a giant arc-shaped projection wall.
