                 In order to help minority children to use national common language to

               language as well, the LGOPAD and the Ministry of Education launched the
               "Speak Mandarin before Going to School" program in 2018. China Telecom
               was entrusted by the LGOPAD to build an information management
               platform for the program and included it as a major project in poverty
               alleviation priorities in 2019 with a total investment of more than 26 million
               yuan and over 500 staff to develop, test, depoly the platform and provide

               teachers, helping preschool children understand, dare to speak and know
               how to speak Mandarin in an idiomatic manner. The pilot project team

              【Leverage Advantages in Targeted Assistance】
                 The Hetian area in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region is one of the most impoverished areas in China. The local government has introduced a number of breeding
               enterprises and adopted the model of "enterprise+industry base+cooperative+farmer" to encourage local residents to breed rex rabbits and other livestock and
               poultry to increase income. Aiming at the problems of scattered residence of farmers, lack of technicians, and difficulties in communicating in Mandarin, the Xinjiang
               Branch developed and launched argicultual ICT solutions: (1) provide farmers with agricultural technology videos to improve the level of planting and breeding; (2)
               use the agricultural big data platform to facilitate the matching between enterprises and farmers for the processing and packaging of agricultural products; and (3)
               connect farmers to e-commerce platforms to promote the sales of agricultural products. At the same time, it developed a "new farm tool - cloud mobile phones",
               which is convenient for farmers to learn and practice standardized planting and breeding techniques and interact with each other. These phones were called as
               "rabbit phones" and "pigeon phones" by local residents based on their purposes. As of the end of 2019, the Xinjiang Branch cooperated with local governments and
               enterprises to distribute 11,000 "new farm tool" mobile phones to poor households in Hetian for free. In the future, experts and technicians will be invited to enrich
               relevant applications.
                 In the past, farmers didn't know any technology, so they couldn't and dared not raise rabbits. With the cloud mobile phone, more and more farmers have increased
               their income and got rid of poverty.

                 Yongjin Village, Barigastai Township, Horqin Youyiqian Banner, Xing'an League, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, suffers from inconvenient
               transportation and poor natural conditions. The local villagers grow corn and soybeans as their main source of income. In the event of drought, production   IN A MODERATELY
               and life will be more challenging. The Inner Mongolia Branch coordinated with the Inner Mongolia MECA Group to purchase soybeans from villagers at a price   PROSPEROUS SOCIETY  SYNERGY TO PROMOTE
               of 0.4 yuan/kg, a price higher than the local market, and sell them through the China Telecom BestPay platform. It cooperated with the village committee   CIVILIZATION DEVELOPMENT
               to guide professional cooperatives to transfer 800 mu of arable land, and use the technology of returning straw to the field to plant soybeans, which has
               increased farmers' income by about 150 yuan per mu. In response to the scarcity of water and irrigation well around Simajia Village, it helped drill 3 drought-
               resistant wells to ensure spring sowing production for more than 100 farmers; it also reconstructed water supply pipelines for the Xingfuyuan community so
               that people can drink water without any health concern.

                 The Henan Branch builds poverty alleviation service stations in poverty-stricken villages, provides free training to registered poor households in
               e-commerce and WeChat-commerce operation, free services for e-merchants related to online store setup, decoration, product launch and business

               smart elderly care, smart tourism and other applications for public welfare. As of the end of 2019, 150 poverty alleviation service stations had been
               constructed and operated in Anyang, Shangqiu, Xinxiang, Kaifeng, Jiaozuo, Puyang and other places, covering 920 poor villages, providing over
               130 e-commerce trainings to more than 4,400 people, and offering assistance in opening 22 online stores in Taobao and other platforms. In Liyuan

               special products such as hand made vermicelli from "Zhongshizhai" with a transaction volume reaching 44,000 yuan.
