Several young live-streamers in China have actively assisted in the country's efforts to promote its national poverty alleviation campaign in recent years.

On May 12, live-stream platform Inke launched the fifth episode of its Youth Poverty Alleviation Documentary, in which scores of young video makers volunteered to appear and pass on professional skills to their audiences.

One participant of the documentary, Bian Guomin, returned to his hometown to start up a business right after graduating from college.

Now, he has been engaged in the loach farming industry for 13 years. In his live-stream, Bian introduced the industry to his audiences in detail and received many positive comments.

Bian has already helped hundreds of farmers to find jobs and he even established comprehensive cooperative ties with three impoverished villages. He plans to expand his business and help some 10 more villages shake off poverty by the end of this year.

Wang Jieyue, an ophthalmologist at Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, in central China's Hunan Province, shared her experiences with audiences and told them how to protect their eyes in another live-stream.

Meanwhile, Yi Zhuhu, a technician from western Hunan, used his live-stream to promote local tea and help farmers sell their products.

So far, over 20 impoverished farmers have shaken off poverty and found jobs with the help of Yi.

The activity was organized by Hunan Communist Youth League, the Office of Cyberspace Affairs Commission in Hunan and Hunan Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development.

The live-streamers earned high praise from the public, said a spokesperson.
