Kindergartens in deep grasslands of northern Tibet

In the past, generations of nomads in Xainza County in the deep grasslands of northern Tibet roamed about seeking water and graze for their herds, living at an average of 4,700 meters above sea level. Because of children’s young ages coupled with the vast and sparsely populated area and long mountain roads, parents were unable to send their children to kindergarten tens or even hundreds of kilometers away.


Today, with the support of national policies and assistance from the CITIC Group, there are now 14 village-level kindergartens throughout Xainza County, and children can go to kindergarten near their homes. One of these, in Nazong Village, Xiaguo Township, Xainza County, is a bilingual kindergarten.
