An elementary school for the kids of drug addicts has been set up on the Sino-Myanmar border belt, a major drug trafficking center.
Myanmar-China Campus School Against Drugs with an area of 1,000 square meters, is located at the No. 4 Special Zone in the east of Shan State, Myanmar.
The school contains 173-sq-m classrooms equipped with 40 sets of desks as well as a seven-cubic-meter tank used to store clean drinking water.
The school was founded with the aid of about 50,000 yuan (US$6,000) from the police office of Jinghong City in the Autonomous Prefecture of Xishuang Banna in southwest China's Yunnan Province.
Myanmar plans to enlarge the school to hold 80 pupils.
