The nutrition project connects residents of the provin

nce’s low-income villages to canteens in rural nurseries as well as primary and secondary schools.

These canteens purchase farm produce from the poverty-stricken farmers, Bao added.

Guizhou has been making painstaking efforts to improve educatio

n for children in rural and mountainous regions because the government believes sch

ooling is the best way to empower the youngsters, who are seen as the hope of their families for getting out of poverty.

The mountainous province is one of the poorest regions in China. In 2018, it still had more

than 1.55 million people living below the poverty line of disposable annual income of 8,495 yuan.

One of Guizhou’s approaches to lifting impoverished people out of a bare-bones existence is to

build settlements in urban areas for the relocation of those who live in mountainous areas considered uninhabitable.
