Huang Yongzhuang, a male official from Guangxi Women's Federation (GWF), has worked for local residents over the past nine years. 

Huang has helped more than 1,600 children start a new life and devoted himself to protecting children and women's rights and interests in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

The All-China Women's Federation launched a charity event for children suffering from AIDS in 2008. As a legal counsel of the GWF, Huang was committed to improving the living conditions of HIV/AIDS-affected children. 

He stayed close to the grassroots by conducting investigations to learn about new situations of these children. Thanks to the detailed information compiled by Huang and his colleagues, the charity event was highly affirmed by the national project management office. The project has received a grant of nearly 4 million yuan(U.S.$ 605,052)and covered 1,693 children under the age of 18. As a consequence, the children's living conditions and education levels have been effectively improved over the years.

The law is the best weapon for women and children to defend their rights. As a legal adviser, Huang always finds ways to help women and children in need. He was involved in the revision and compilation of the Measures for the Implementation of the Law on the Protection of Women's Rights and Interests in Guangxi, the Handbook of the Rights Protection of GWF, the Handbook on Women's Rights Protection and the Handbook on Domestic Drug Control.

Huang made the most of his professional skills and helped create the rights protection posts which was initiated by the Guangxi provincial courts, procuratorates and public security departments.

Huang has received an emergency call once when a girl was sexually abused. He asked for a legal aid for the young victim and her mother immediately, invited a psychological counselor to support the girl through psychological guidance and applied for relief funds for the mother and daughter successfully.   

Huang has paid special attention to the important rights protection cases in the region. He participated in the assistance to an HIV-positive orphan in Liuzhou city and helped solve the boy's custody and education issues. 

Huang began working on poverty alleviation in a village at the end of 2015. He always adheres to strict ethical standards and lives up to the high principles of the Communist Party of China. He issued nearly 200,000 yuan (U.S. $ 30,252.61) of funds to those in need and he never accepted any bribes.

As the first secretary, Huang refused a real estate boss' bribe and helped poor households solve their problem of unsalable chicken. The local people have praised Huang as an honest and diligent official.
