BEIJING, May 17 (Xinhua) -- China's National Immigration Administration (NIA) has dispatched 77 police officers to teach in primary schools in poverty-stricken villages of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

The officers from immigration agencies across the country will spend a semester in 37 schools in Sanjiang Dong Autonomous County, teaching courses including English and physical education, the administration said.

The NIA has spent more than 15 million yuan (around 2.12 million U.S. dollars) on education facilities in the county since the two teamed up in the fight against poverty in 2019.

It has helped more than 1,300 pupils from impoverished families and donated supplies to keep over 13,000 pupils and their families out of the cold, according to the NIA. Enditem
