That plaque has been there for nine years and a social enterprise sponsored by the economists Mao Yushi and Tang Min behind it. At the beginning ,providing housekeeping training to the women from poor regions isthe main business of Fuping Development Institute; it has enabled nearly 10,000 housekeepersfrom Anhui and Gansu, among other places, to work in the big cities.
