Hebian Village is located in a remote mountainous area of Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China's Yunnan Province, close to China's border with Laos. The small village of ethnic Yao people, surrounded by a large rainforest, used to be mired in deep poverty, with almost all families heavily in debt.
A special poverty alleviation program led by Li Xiaoyun, a professor from China Agricultural University, has brought tremendous changes to the village in recent years. All villagers now live in well-equipped houses combining traditional Yao style with modern facilities. Today, with the overall environment greatly improved and more than 50 guest rooms set up in villagers' homes, the once isolated village is a popular destination for high-level meetings, summer and winter camps of students and other activities.
