Mar. 9, 2018 -- A special working group has been established in Lhasa as the city intensifies its efforts to care for and protect left-behind children in rural areas.

At present, Lhasa has more than 800 left-behind children under the guardianship of their grandparents or other relatives. 39.26 percent of them are under 5, 49.43 percent aged from 6 to 13 and 11.31 percent, 14 to 16.

Measures have been introduced in the city to protect the rights and interests of the left-behind children, especially the right to education. Lhasa has established four "Children's Happy Homes" and announced two pilot counties. More effective measures will follow to improve care services for left-behind children.

Meanwhile, families, schools and the society have worked together to provide them with legal and mental health guidance, strengthen children's ability of self-protection and create a sound environment for their development.
