In 2019, The company's general manager Mr. Lai Guangzhou was invited to Ningxia for an investigation. He visited Jingyuan County and found that there were no village enterprises in the area, and the main industry was cattle and sheep raising, which was more suitable for male workers. His enterprise is very suitable forleft-behind women employment, so he sprouted the idea of building poverty alleviation workshops.

We have the responsibility to continue the story." When he came to investing in a factory in Ningxia, Lai guangzhou cannot help but be moved.

As the head of this business, I also feel great sense of accomplishment."

They also set up "old dining tables" to include the parents of poor people who work in workshops and other elderly people, to solve the problem of people having to go home at noon to cook. The "four O 'clock School" was set up to solve the problem of "the masses going to work and their children being left unattended after school", so as to reassure the poor and gradually form professional workers.
