Li Xia, a community official in the Shunyi District of Beijing, has made great efforts to develop the local area and promote a harmonious neighborhood in recent years.
The 39-year-old Party secretary is also director of Hongcheng Garden community committee. Thanks to her, the once dilapidated residential area is looking better than ever, according to locals.
Build better environment
One elderly resident called Gao recalls that the area's original roads were uneven, the facilities were out-of-date, and there was no place for leisure and entertainment activities. To make things worse, there were regular burglaries.
In 2012, Li planned 10 housing projects and one technical renovation project.
She spent three years and eventually succeeded in persuading real estate developers to make investments.
By 2015, the residential area had taken on a new look, with a safe environment and well-equipped facilities.
Taking stability as the top priority, Li divided the residential area into 12 safety "rings", which each facilitated local feedback, problem solving and community harmony.
Establish five-color classes
Every month, 87 volunteers gather to take training classes. In the Blue Security Class, they learn new skills including how to help others and safeguard the community.
In the Red Party Class, they enhance their objectives and consciousness as Party members. In the Green Health Class, they promote eco-friendly notions and a healthy lifestyle.
In the Apricot Harmony Class, they learn how to develop harmonious families and a civilized community. In the Orange Heart-warming Class, they learn cooking, making desserts and carrying out a traditional tea ceremony.
The five-color classes created by Li have been reported by many journals and newspapers, and Li has since earned many honorary titles.
