A tale of targeted poverty alleviation: How a Xinjiang village moves toward prosperity

Tursunjan Ubul woke up from his newly decorated house in the early morning. He fed the cattle and watered crops planted in his backyard. Living in the far west of northwest China’s #Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the coronavirus epidemic in the country had little impact on his life. If nothing goes wrong, he will be lifted out of poverty by the end of 2020, the deadline of China’s poverty reduction campaign. Ubul lives in Beshterek Village, an impoverished village located in Akto County, Kizilsu Kirghiz Autonomous Prefecture in Xinjiang. The village has long been regarded as a hard nut in the fight against poverty. To fulfill its commitment to end poverty, the village adopted a targeted poverty alleviation strategy, and through years of effort, the number of registered poor households has been remarkably reduced from 349 households with 1,564 people to 85 households with 342 people. #ZeroPoverty2020
