Back in 2015, almost 70% of families in Yaduo village were registered as poor, accounting for 1063 people in total. “We are very glad to see all these families have been lifted out of poverty thanks to the assistance of RT Group,” said Qian Yihua, a Nujiang Justice Bureau official charged with the responsibility of village poverty alleviation. “In 2016, 22 families were lifted out of poverty. In 2017, an additional 158 families were supported, with a further 38 in 2018, and 59 in 2019,” Qian added.

The growing, picking and packaging of tsaoko and tea are the two main industries that have helped the villagers. “The most sustainable way to help Yaduo village is to establish and maintain viable businesses. In 2017, we funded their cooperatives by investing in tea factories, motivating their inner desires to develop a long-term thriving industry. The results reveal this investment has been very effective,” said Tony Lee, Chairman of the RT Group.
