Officials in Longsheng County, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, have carried out a special project since 2016 to send teachers to the homes of physically-impaired children to give them lessons.

The Home-teaching Project initiative is run by the Longsheng County Education Bureau and China Disabled Persons' Federation, and benefits children who are able to learn but unable to go to school themselves.

A 12-year-old boy called Yang Wenyong was among the first batch of students to be given classes in 2016. He lives in the local village of Ximen, Sishui Town.

Unable to stand up, and with difficulties using his right hand, the school in Sishui arranged for three to five teachers to teach Yang. Each teacher gives him a class once or twice a week.

The school also prepared a targeted curriculum for him including Chinese, math, sports and mental training.

After two years of learning, Yang has acquired much knowledge and has become more confident. He is also now able to move more autonomously.

    When I get older, I will like to travel around the world. I guess my first overseas destination should be New Zealand, an Islands country, small, but quite interesting.
