Shenzhen, known as the City of Dreams and a city of immigrants, has many children from families who came to build their dreams. In September 2022, the Ai Li Girls' Chorus Project ("Ai Li") was established through charitable donations, open recruitment, and selection. It formed a public welfare choir of children aged 6 to 12 from families who migrated to Shenzhen. After three months of professional choir training, with weekly sessions, the children learned to read sheet music and sing with confidence. They went from Chinese songs to learning songs in other languages. In November of the same year, they performed on stage at the 2022 Shenzhen Fringe Festival with their first concert, "The Sound of Love." The concert was presented online in December and received widespread recognition from parents, teachers, and the community.


The children found companionship through the choir, built confidence, and enriched their extracurricular lives. With the establishment of Ai Li, more people have started paying attention to the growth of children from immigrant families in Shenzhen. This has further fostered the spirit of an open, inclusive, and diverse city, promoting the development of Shenzhen as a child-friendly city.
