He moved here along with his family from a remote village in Dagze county, also in Lhasa, and now they live in a new single-family unit, which has a market value of 200,000 yuan ($29,000). The construction was done with special funds from the central government's poverty alleviation projects.

The house is equipped with new furniture, a TV, home appliances and the internet.

Gesang used to be a truck driver and would earn about 2,000 yuan per month. He is now taking time off work following an eye surgery.

His wife, Dorje, 27, a former farmer, now runs a kindergarten in the new village, and can earn more than 1,000 yuan per month. The couple have two children, aged 3 and 5.

"I enjoy watching TV series dubbed in the Tibetan language during my spare time," says Dorje.
