Help for those left behind
Updated: 2011-10-31 08:02
(China Daily)

A picture can be a powerful thing.



A photo of 10-year-old Long Zhanghuan, carrying her two-year-old cousin in her arms while attending class, has tugged at the heartstrings of many netizens.

The girl, her little brother and six cousins are living with their grandparents in Fenghuang county of Hunan province while their parents are in cities far away. Long Zhanghuan has proved an able assistant to her grandparents, taking care of the little ones.

The girl's photo has drawn attention once again to the 58 million children and 40 million elderly left behind in rural China.

In the village where Long Zhanghuan lives all the able body people under the age of 45 have left for cities to make money.

There are a lot of villages in the country like this one, where the only inhabitants are children and elderly.

Migration from rural areas to cities continues to accelerate, pushed along by China's economic expansion, and the population of children left behind also continues to grow.

We hope that policymakers will pay more attention to the difficulties facing Long Zhanghuan and children like her, as well as the elderly left behind in rural China, and come up with future-oriented policies to meet their needs.

Reform of the hukou, household registration policy, began officially in 1997, when the government abolished some of the hukou-linked quotas set to limit the number of migrants in the bigger cities.
Although this made it more feasible and acceptable for rural people to move to urban areas for work, it did not address the gaps in service provision between urban and rural areas and led to the separation of families.

The reality is that while cities expand and receive more funding from the central government for all sorts of social services, conditions and opportunities for families in rural areas are not improving nearly as quickly.

If barriers to public services such as education continue to exist for migrants in China's cities as a result of the hukou system, then migrant workers will continue to leave their children behind.
Most pressingly, while policies like the hukou system have yet to catch up with the pace of migration, it is imperative to find effective interim measures to deal with the ongoing physical, social, emotional and psychological challenges faced by the population of left-behind children and their grandparents.

The government should try to help them as soon as possible.

yes, you are right.

I admire those behind supportors.


These children can learn a lot from their experiences.
Not only do I admire the children,
yes, you are right. I admire those behind supportors.
+++++++++++++
It's not wrong that we need to hold a positive attitude towards those facts.

I had lived in some of such types of area for months many years before.
Life is hard beyond words there.

When their peers are playing music, are studying sketch and water color drawing, are studying extra skills from excellent teachers, they are struggling to survive.

After they growing up, most of them would become so called "migrant workers". Most of them would take the heavy handy works  in cities and in rural area. Seldom of them would become office workers in cities, not alone social elites or bosses, or ...

Of course there are many adult Chinese don't know how to write their names down yet. I met many of them lately in Gansu province. At least these children in pics are lucky than those illiterate Chinese.

Thanks for the pictures.
They show clearly that the job some do as volunteers teaching these children is very needed still.
I hope we can all appreciate what we have and spare some help, in money or time, to help them get out of peverty.
