Left-behind women, impoverished residents and disabled people in a town of Wuxi County in Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality have had access to embroidery training courses in recent years, which has helped them master embroidery skills and be able to work in poverty alleviation workshops.

The local government established the workshops which develop new cultural and creative products, such as embroidered paintings for wall decoration and embroidered pillows. The workers have increased their income through embroidering in the workshops.
