"My family made a living from a combination of farming and my hourly work in Lhasa City, just meeting our basic living needs. During farming season, I had to go back to do farm work, which made me miss other opportunities for making money. Now, we have been relocated to this new residential area in Lhasa City. This is what we have long been dreamed of," Tsering Badro says happily.

"With local benefiting projects, my son has been trained in cooking free of charge. Now, he runs a Tibetan restaurant in Tibet’s Nyingchi City, and earns about 60,000 yuan RMB annually. I have two daughters: one is at university since 2019 and enjoys tuition preferential policies; the other studies well at Newu Middle School. My wife and I have a stable income of more than 6,000 yuan RMB every month," Tsering Badro says.
