The project currently has five full-time employees, including Ye, plus volunteers.

Zeng Chunlan, a freshman at the City College of Dongguan University of Technology, helps out at Home for the Blind on a voluntary basis twice a week, with her classmates.

"I enjoy talking to the students, and I think, perhaps, because they cannot see the world, it is simple and pure for them," she says.

Ye's project also organizes matchmaking activities for the blind and visually impaired.

"We have a singles' club and organize activities including karaoke, birthday parties, mountain climbing and sightseeing, at least twice a month."

Ye says dating and marriage are difficult for people like him.

He says that in his spare time, he goes skating, plays ping-pong, watches soccer games, listens to the radio and watches movies.

"I have quite a variety of hobbies and hope the girls will like them," he says, with a smile.
