Zhaotong Youth Development Foundation has said that the rest of the money would go to other less-fortunate pupils in the region. The teacher who took the photo of Wang said it generally takes the child more than an hour to make the 2.8-mile journey from his home to the school. And there are other kids like him known as the "left-behind children"  - kids whose parents work in cities while their children stay behind in the village with siblings and grandparents.
