The China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation has launched a project to hire and train 100 local women as substitute mothers to take care of left-behind children.

The three-year program will select 100 villages across Sichuan province and hire one woman in each village to take charge of all the local left-behind children.

The program, launched by the nongovernmental organization in late October, will eventually supervise approximately 35,000 children if it is successful.
