Tsering Gyalpo: Lifting villager fellows out of poverty

In Gyamuk Village of Shiquanhe Town, Gar County of Ngari Prefecture, southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, Tsering Gyalpo's house is the best one. The two-story small western-style building just completed in 2019, covering an area of more than 500 m², with magnificent decoration, this house shows how rich the owner is.

However, he used to be a poor man, too. Six people in his family lived in a tent without water or electricity. They bred few livestock and earned only a few thousand yuan RMB in one year, which put them under heavy living pressure.

In 2007, with the rapid development of Ngari's economy and society, local construction sites mushroomed. Tsering Gyalpo took the opportunity and found a job as a transportation driver on a construction site. He worked hard and delivered goods safely, getting an income of nearly 30,000 yuan RMB in a year.

Tsering Gyalpo has been engaged in this work for more than 10 years. With the help of the Party and the state's various preferential policies, his income has increased year by year. He not only gets rid of poverty, but also becomes a well-known wealthy person in the village. At this time, he wants to help villagers with employment difficulties or low income to live well-off lives.

In the past, he contracted a sand factory near the village, hired 7 villagers to work in it, providing each of them with a monthly salary of 7,500 yuan RMB; he also encouraged the masses to use their own trucks to do transportation business, further increasing their income. He volunteered to be a propagandist for farmers and herdsmen in the village, and imparted his experience of becoming rich for over 10 times. Since March 2019, he has been helping Shique Wangmo, an old man who lived alone in the village, and sending living materials to him often. Under the leadership of Party committees and governments at all levels as well as pioneers of becoming rich like Tsering Gyalpo, the whole village was lifted out of poverty in 2017.

Next, he plans to set up a construction company to let more people participate and share the development dividend. "Thanks to the party and the government's help, I succeeded, so I should use my ability to repay villager fellows and the society, and help everyone get rich together." He says.
