"I really appreciate their kindness but I hope to raise awareness in governmental organizations and large companies. It's really not enough to count on a single person's effort," Wu says.

"Those regions are isolated from the outside world," says Xu Feng, 34, who is from Xining city in Qinghai province, and helps Wu while running his own outdoor sports tour company.

"I believe his project will benefit people in those poor areas. Now we have several outdoor sports companies that want to donate," Xu says.

Not all sponsorship is driven by individuals. A few companies are involved too. An outdoor clothing and equipment brand under China Outdoor Retailer Association has been supporting Wu's project since 2009.

Wu dreams of visiting all impoverished regions within the next 10 years. But he acknowledges it will probably take much longer.

"I don't know how many years it will take to visit all those impoverished regions but I won't stop because I just don't want to live my life in vain," Wu says.
