Li Haimei, a college student and also a volunteer, holds a five-year-old left-behind girl Wei Yanfang in Shouju Village of Siding Township, Rong'an County in Liuzhou City, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, July 13, 2017. As one of the many volunteer teachers, this is her second time to teach in rural areas in Guangxi. Due to harsh environmental conditions such as the stony desertification and mountainous landform, Guangxi has long been a less developed area in China. In recent years, local government carried out many measurements for the poverty alleviation work. Tens of thousands of officials and staff members helped local people build roads, repair houses, improve education and industry development. In 2016, more than 1.11 million people were liberated from poverty. The poverty-stricken population in the region has declined from 10.12 million in 2010 to current 3.638 million. (Xinhua/Li Xin)
