URUMQI, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- To provide better quality education to students in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, high schools and universities across inland cities offer classes for students from Xinjiang.

Most of the students return to work in Xinjiang after graduation, devoting themselves to building a better Xinjiang.

Ailijiang Tuxunjiang was one of them.

He went to east China's Suzhou City to attend high school and then graduated from a renowned university in Beijing.

Afterward, he returned to his hometown of Boxireke, Yecheng County in Xinjiang's Kashgar.

He has helped locals to make money by developing fruit, vegetable, and nut growing businesses.

"I want to continue to stay here to do good to people, offer them good service, and make my own contribution to local development," says Ailijiang Tuxunjiang.

Ailijiang Tuxunjiang is not alone.

Iskandar Yakefu returned to Kashgar and opened a restaurant after graduated from a high school in Shenzhen.

He also opens an online store, selling dried fruits, and runs a tea garden.

"The four years of study and life in Shenzhen have deeply influenced me. I don't give up easily and become braver to do things," says Iskandar Yakefu.

China's Ministry of Education has asked richer inland cities to open high school classes for students from Xinjiang since 2000.

The move is to provide better education for Xinjiang students.
