Part 3: Education in rural China

One major aspect of China’s education reform is to improve equality. Rural schools are at the center of this endeavor. Poverty, harsh natural conditions, and limited resources are the main reasons for this. So it’s especially important to make sure they don’t lose what they have before getting all they need.

Part 4: Housing for China's low-income earners

Home is the harbor for our tired bodies after a day’s hard work. Home is also the haven for our lonely souls especially for those who are working along in a foreign city. Constructing indemnificatory apartments not only benefits people with low incomes, but also benefits neighborhoods in ways such as boosting local economy, creating more job opportunities and stimulating consumption.
