CGTN published this video item, entitled “Live: Vocational training school helps uneducated kids in China” – below is their description.
On its road to eradicating extreme poverty, China has emphasized education and pledged not to leave a single child behind. Fugong County in southwest China’s Yunnan Province lies in the hinterland of the Nujiang Grand Canyon and borders Myanmar to the west. For decades, the area had seen a slow development due to its remoteness, and many school-age children didn’t receive any education. To help these children, some of whom are relocated from deep mountains while some return from Myanmar, the local government has set up a special school for them, where they are provided with tailored courses, mainly different vocational skills. Follow CGTN’s Yang Jinghao to this school for more. #ZeroPoverty2020CGTN YouTube Channel
