Li Hongmei just finished a long telephone conversation with her daughter, who will take this year's National College Entrance Examination (NCEE), or "gaokao," on Tuesday.

Li, a 42-year-old Communist Party of China (CPC) member from the Ganzhou Municipal Forestry Bureau in east China's Jiangxi Province, is doing a year of public service in the village of Lixin in Jiangxi's city of Ganzhou.

"My daughter complained about my neglect over the past six months while she was preparing for the NCEE," Li said.

Li came to Lixin to offer assistance to 40 rural households around the end of 2010, when 20,000 other Party members were dispatched to 3,751 villages by the Ganzhou Municipal government.

A nationwide campaign launched by the CPC at the end of 2010 called on Party members to go deep into China's most remote towns and villages. The campaign is intended to give Party members a better understanding of the problems and issues facing the country's rural population, and to give those rural people a helping hand.

"I have to leave my family and stay with the locals in this small village for one year to fulfill our Party's commitment to the people," said Li.
