Wang Fuman, from rural Ludian in Yunnan province and better known on the internet as "Snowflake Boy", moved into his primary school's new dormitory recently, along with 72 other students, with the help of civil groups and local government.

Chen Furong, director of the Ludian education department, told Xinhua News Agency they raised more than 800,000 yuan ($124,772) from various sources to carry out renovations on Zhuanshanbao primary school's class building, dormitory and canteen.

141 students study at Zhuanshanbao primary school in Ludian. Wang, an 8-year-old boy, is one of them. He attracted attention nationwide after his photograph was posted on the internet by the principal of his primary school on Jan 8.
