The scheme will select demonstration counties across the country.
Those that have, in the past two years, had a record of incidents where children's rights and interests were violated, or failed to provide "left-behind" children with household registration or registration of custody, will not be eligible for the selection.
Following National Guidance on Protection of Left-behind Children and Children in Plights in Rural Areas, the selected demonstration counties must have a system in place to raise the minimum standard of living for orphans and children in plight; and, establish an accident insurance system covering school students and such children.
They should also set up a dynamic monitoring mechanism to better administer these special groups, and build Children's Home centers in villages to provide activities, psychological counseling and interpersonal relationship adjustment for children.
