Dorje's younger brother is attending college in Fujian province. Now there are 15 college students from their village.

"The majority of the college students from the village, including my brother, are willing to come back to work in the county since the conditions have improved a lot and there are many opportunities with government support," Dorje adds.

Each household in the new village is being provided with construction funds depending on the number of family members, Gesang says.

Besides houses, cooperatives have also come up with the local government's support to improve the livelihoods of the villagers. There are four cooperatives that raise chicken, cows and grow herbs for Tibetan medicines. The cooperatives have already started to make profit.

The cooperatives are providing income sources to those who cannot go to the cities as migrant workers, including women. More than 60 villagers have been hired to work in the cooperatives after receiving training. Some others from the nearby areas have also been recruited for the work.
