Le­qun is a re­mote and poor vil­lage in Gui zhou prov­ince. Nearly 10 per­cent of Le­qun’s 4,000 res­i­dents are dis­abled — far higher than China na­tional dis­abil­ity rate 6.5 per­cent. With an an­nual in­come less than 4,000 yuan, most peo­ple there live be­low the poverty line. Adopt­ing an in­no­va­tive “com­pany+farm­ers+base” model, the prov­ince has launched a new anti-poverty cam­paign. Un­der the plan, farm­ers be­come share­hold­ers of a com­pany with land in­vest­ment. Next week, China Daily will re­lease an in-depth re­port on the pro­gram.
