The Huai'AnYidunqing Rural Community Development Association was founded in November 2009 in the Huai'an County Civil Affairs Bureau, overseen by theHuai'an County Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development. The association has a membership of 64 people, of which 36 of them are women and 62 are farmers. Upon satisfying the regulations of the establishment of the general assembly by the association, the elected council was composed of seven members, three of which were women, including a chairman, two vice chairman, a secretary-general, and three other members. As a new agricultural organization, we have a lot of enthusiasm for development to build our hometown.
"Yidunqing"s namesake is the name of one of the local traditional potato varieties. 40 years ago, the Huai'an County Taiping Township requested the village farmers to cultivate the Yidunqing potatoes. Because of its long growing season and high stress resistance, the local farmers named it "Yidunqing", also translating to "Yidunqing". Now, the Yidunqing Rural Development Association (hereinafter abbreviated to the Development Association) borrows its name representing its grassroots and local characteristics, and hopes that it will be able to seed and take root in poor rural areas.
Yidunqing Development Association was established on the basis of 10 years of work, originating from the capacity and awareness development from local farmers in Huai'an Action Aid. All members in the organization assist in development projects, becoming the backbone of villagers, women, and partners. The growth of the Yidunqing organization has been under the guidance of many experts and scholars.
