Aiming at promoting poverty alleviation work and realizing social and economic benefits more effectively, a Poverty Alleviation Workshop – Drolma Ethnic Costume Professional Cooperative has been officially put into operation a few days ago at Sanyou Village of Dagar Township of Lhasa's Quxu County, southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region. The workshop cooperative, as one of the poverty alleviation projects of Quxu County, mainly embarks on producing ethnic costumes and making cloths for schools' desks, chairs, tables, and artistic performance costumes.

At the beginning of the establishment, the village has provided 5 workshops and one office to the cooperative for free through communicating and coordinating with local relevant departments. The cooperative has recruited 5 villagers including 4 disabled people from poor households, and signed labor contracts to help them get out of poverty. Since running of the cooperative, local farmers and herdsmen have learned skills of producing costume and each of them earned 2,500 yuan RMB monthly. Currently, through a pre-job training lasting one month, 15 villagers from impoverished households have basically mastered the use of sewing machines and improved their producing abilities.
