An impoverished teenager from Liuzhou, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, recently secured her right to education after receiving financial backing from the government and charity-minded individuals.
Liang Hongyue, 15, has been living with her mother Gun Peiyi, who is unable to speak or hear, and younger brother since her father died about four years ago.
Due to a lack of income, the family has lived in hardship and was recognized as a poverty-stricken household.
This year, with the help of charity projects, Liang's mother has learned to make embroideries which are now sold across the country. This has become the main income source of the family, and their dilapidated house is already being innovated.
On Saturday, Liang went to enroll in a junior high school in Sanjiang County, embarking on her new campus experience.
