Tibetan residents of the Nedong district of Tibet Autonomous Region have recently obtained training in animal husbandry in Wuhan, Hubei Province.
The project was funded by the Wuhan Ethnic and Religious Affairs Commission and the Nedong District Government of Tibet.
Trainees came from rural areas of the Nedong district, most of them engaged inbreeding. For most of them, the trip to Wuhan was their first trip out of Tibet.
Participants have been provided with breeding training and skills training and have been introduced to agricultural industrialisation. They also visited various breeding centres, the Han-Tibetan Cultural Exchange Centre, the Modern Agricultural Exhibition Centre, and the Yellow Crane Tower, or Huanghelou, a landmark in Wuhan.
The vocational training programme for Tibetan residents in Wuhan was introduced in 2017. Since then, vocational training has included cooking, rural e-commerce, planting and animal husbandry. Instruction has been provided annually in different schools in Wuhan, with more than 200 trainees directly benefiting from the projects in recent years.
