Jiao Shengding accompanies students after school on their way home in Aidian Township of Ningming County, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, June 23, 2020. Jiao Shengding, 52, is the only teacher at the teaching site of Zhangji Village, which is located on the border between China and Vietnam. After graduating from the county's secondary vocational school in 1990, Jiao chose to be a teacher at his hometown Zhangji Village and since then he has been teaching there for 30 years. During the past three decades, he taught more than 400 pupils, most of whom came from the three adjacent Yao ethnic group villages. Currently, there are only two first graders and six second graders in his teaching site. Different from what is expected of a rural school such as dilapidated buildings, broken tables and chairs, the teaching site is actually pretty modern and is equipped with teaching hardware like sliding blackboards and LED touch screens. Over the years, although Jiao got offers from several better schools in the county, he turned them down. "Who's going to teach my students if I leave?" said Jiao, who fully knows that few young people would settle down in the village because it is far away from prosperous cities.

To Jiao's joy, many of his students have moved out of the mountains to start their own businesses and some even entered universities, including his daughter Jiao Lingxia. The daughter followed in his father's footsteps and became a teacher at Aidian Primary School in Aidian Town, where the village locates, after graduating from a college in 2016. "Education can change the fate of these students. The better foundation I lay for them, the brighter future they may have by further study," said Jiao. (Xinhua/Cao Yiming)

Since June 2019, multiple steps have been taken by local authorities in Songtao to improve the living standards of residents who had relocated from the county's poorer mountainous areas. These include offering better public services, career counselling, and more vocational training for the purpose of poverty relief. By May 2020, a total of 26,964 rural residents have resettled in five resettlement sites in Songtao. Among the relocated, 4,082 have been re-employed at top local enterprises and poverty-relief businesses, while some others choose to work away from home. Meanwhile, 3,798 relocated children have been enrolled in nearby schools. (Photo by Long Yuanbin/Xinhua)

Thirty female contestants, all older than 30, took part in a televised reality show this month, competing for five places in a performance group.

The program immediately became a hot topic nationwide, as the entertainment industry in China traditionally favors women in their early 20s or even younger.

Named Sisters Riding the Winds and Breaking the Waves, the show premiered on June 12 on Hunan Television and Mango TV, a livestreaming platform.

Actresses Ning Jing, 48, and Christy Chung, 50, along with singers Zhang Hanyun, 31, and Yu Kewei, 37, were among the contestants. A panel of coaches joined the show, including a well-known actor, the head of a music company, a celebrity manager, a music director and a stage director.

Yang Chenglan is the first person in Fengdeng Dong village, Guizhou province, to graduate from university. However, she gave up her life in the city and teaching job to return to her hometown in Rongjiang county in the Qiandongnan Miao and Dong autonomous prefecture to start a business in 2016. In her village, weaving and dyeing have been traditional crafts of the women from the Dong ethnic group for generations. However, the crafts are in danger of disappearing as many locals are leaving for work in the city. Yang, who is from the balinghou or post-1980 generation, decided to protect this traditional Dong way of weaving and dyeing.

Together with the other women in her village, Yang worked with them to experiment using different plants to dye cloth. At present, the age-old Dong ethnic crafts have flourished under Yang and her fellow villagers through these innovative methods, with the dyed cloth gaining popularity and selling well at home and abroad. This business has also helped revitalize Yang's village.
