Residents in Lower Halama village, Anqu Town in southwest China's Sichuan province, successfully shook off their village's official status as poverty-stricken last year, according to a recent profile.

In order to achieve their aim, villagers learnt traditional Tibetan crafts such as weaving and embroidery, and greatly diversified their means of making a living and increasing their incomes.

Village are also planning to develop a tourism program called Happy Tibetan House, which it is hoped will also help them earn more.
