Before the herdsman moved to new home, his family's income from stocking yaks was 40,000 yuan per year. Because he suffers from rheumatism, his family was trapped in poverty. Now, the family is seeing better times after relocating. The man and his son work at the set's breeding farm, and also stock yaks at their own farm. The family's income has doubled.

Poverty relief

Caiqutang village, two kilometers from Yangbajing town, is a new relocation site that aims to ease life of poor herdsmen and herdswomen.

The village has rich geothermal resources. Currently, every villager's home has channels to transport hot spring water that can ease some villagers' pain caused by rheumatism.
