BEIJING, July 29 (Xinhuanet) -- While most Chinese college graduates would prefer to stay in big cities for their careers, Xu Xinkai, a college graduate of Chinese language and literature chose a different road.
"People's housing security has been guaranteed through renovation of dilapidated houses and relocation. No children drop out of school because of poverty," Xu said in a written interview with Xinhuanet.
“This is critical given that young people are creative, quick-minded and full of energy," he noted.
“I am confident winning the war against poverty in Shuanglong Township, and I feel very proud of contributing to the work,” he said.
During his stay in Shuanglong Township, he has witnessed much progress made in the local poverty alleviation work.
He also visits villagers living in poverty and inquires about their difficulties and needs, making detailed records and plans out ways to help them.

Speaking of the measures taken by the local government, Xu said effective poverty alleviation projects have been brought in.
"Young cadres who are adept at computer skills and familiar with Internet technology are assigned here," said Xu.
"The village where I am based has cooperated with a medical company to develop herbs and orchard plantations which can increase villagers’ income,” he said.
Science and technology are given priority in fulfilling the task.
