Model rooms for rural boarding school promoted by Alibaba Group Chairman and Founder Jack Ma Yun were unveiled Sunday during Jack Ma Rural Teacher Award ceremony held in Sanya, South China's Hainan province.

The over 20-square-meter room can accommodate six students, comes with attached bathroom and one designated teacher to supervise the room. The cost of each room is 40,000 yuan ($5,921).

Ma first put forward the plan to build rural boarding school last year and started trials at a rural school in Chun'an county, East China's Zhejiang province. Apart from dormitory, the plan also includes two play-and-fun centers on each floor in the dorm building, encompassing eight areas, such as for family activities, reading, chess, painting and calligraphy, and Lego.

Ma has awarded rural teachers every year in Sanya since 2015.
