Guizhou's Generations: Grandparents

My Scholarship entry - Generations of Dimen

Three generations in Dimen, a Dong-minority village in China's Guizhou Province.

Since the young generation often has to leave their homes for jobs in the city, it's the grandparents who bring up the children.

The Dong people teach children about life by making up songs - something that is also used when trying to impress a love interest.
