DAHUA -- Meng Xuantai unknowingly made news headlines nearly 11 years ago during his hour-long trek to school in the craggy mountains of Dahua, South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

In a photo taken by a Xinhua photographer in September 2012, the eight-year-old was struggling to climb up a cliff, with one hand pressing against a rock to keep his balance and the other holding a plastic bag containing everything he needed for school.
