As a blind person herself, Kela knows what the blind children need. She wants to impart the life experiences accumulated in her childhood to her students.
In July 2011, with the help of many kind people, Kela opened Kiki Blind Children's Kindergarten in Shigatse of Tibet autonomous region, which is also the first kindergarten for the blind children in China. She determined to help blind children find the direction of their lives, to be a walking stick for them.
Kela is the head of the kindergarten as well as the English teacher. Though Kela has a poor sense of light, she always touches the children’s eyes and told them encouraging words.
"Now the important lesson for them is to learn to live independently, such as, learning to walk, eating, folding up a quit and so on", said Kela. For example, she pulls the children's small hands and lets them touch the texture of the clothes and trademark, so that they would not wear the inner part on the outside. She teaches them to touch a corner of a quilt, and fold it symmetrically so that the quilt could be set neatly. These are all simple for the ordinary people; however, the blind children need to practice again and again.【1】 【2】
