Captivating's Santa Run- Thank you and photos!
Captivating’s inaugural Santa Run was a truly festive spectacle. 342 runners and 65 volunteers, donned red shirts, hats and Santa suits to run or walk the 6km or 3km around the new Shenzhen Bay walkway. We were overwhelmed by the response from the community, from runners to volunteers, and it was truly enjoyed by participants and spectators alike!
133 Children then got to meet Santa and received gifts, kindly donated by Gold Sponsor ZURU, while listening to carols sung by the truly amazing Freedom:61. It was a wonderful way to start the holiday season.

Work Experience Brings Confidence to Kalsang
Time is like a river, flowing day and night, never stopping. It flows quietly by us, and we slowly grow older and wiser. It’s like everything has changed, and yet our dreams of a better future never change.

Building future leaders, thanks to PCH
25 university level students from rural, poor families in Western China, participated in the 2017 PCH Capacity-Building Leadership program. Their families have already sacrificed so much to get them to university and are quite possibly in debt for the rest of their lives.

Our lovely school
Standing on the top of the Gesar mountain one can see a little red spot, which is our school, Seng Girls Vocational Training School. People have said our school looks like a monastery, because in our Tibetan areas, most of the temples and monasteries are painted red. Our school’s buildings are all painted red in the middle of October this year, but they weren’t always red.
