In implementing the project of development-based poverty alleviation of rural persons with disabilities, the Chinese government has focused on women and children with disabilities in rural areas and has redoubled efforts to support and help them. A large number of women with disabilities have improved their living conditions, increased skills and improved the quality of life through poverty alleviation. In consideration of the characteristics of women with disabilities, we have offered training in rural useful and practical technologies, encouraged women with disabilities to make full use of their courtyard resources for planting, breeding and processing, and helped them to develop entrepreneurial projects. The government has helped women with disabilities to develop production skills and capabilities by giving them a platform and providing them with practical and effective services so that these women will be able to support themselves, increase income and effectively improve their status in the family and in the society. The Women's Federation of Yongshou County of Shaanxi Province has conducted training in handicraft skills for rural disabled women. 158 women with disabilities in the county attended the training and learned basic skills and techniques of embroidery, cloisonné and other handicrafts. The training has given these women a platform for increasing income and becoming well- off through hard work. As a result, their family income has increased; they have got out of poverty, have enjoyed higher social status and family status, and have realized their own values as well as their social values. In addition, this training project has also encouraged and impacted 280 women in the neighborhood of Yongshou County. This project has been well received by people from all walks of life and women in particular. Issue 26 Participation in political and public life (art. 29) 26.

the State party’s report. Deprivation of a person’s political rights is one of the penalties provided for under the Criminal Law. It is only applicable to the crimes that are clearly defined by law, and it is not targeted against any particular group of people. Therefore, there is no judicial statistics in China specifically on the number of persons with disabilities who have been deprived of political rights. Issue 27 C. Women and children with disabilities (arts. 6 and 7) 27.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
