70% increase in income for 96 families - FOREVER!

Now in our 3rd year of Greenhouse solutions in partnership with our wonderful friends at GPA Global, a family who receives one of our greenhouses will have the capacity to increase their cash income by an estimated RMB4,000 a year (70%). This is SIGNIFICANT, and results in many children going on to complete their schooling who would otherwise be rural school drop-outs.

Baby at the door

Ben picked up this tiny baby boy and took him home to his wife Janet. Immediately, motherly instincts took over and Janet fed and dressed the baby. They spent weeks trying to find who the parents were, but no one came to claim him.

Gratitude from the heart of the mountains

Nayu Village is 115km away from the nearest city. Nayu is beautiful but very remote. Most of the villagers who live in Nayu make their living from the land. The family of Liu Xuelan is no exception.

8 more greenhouses! Thank you QSI Shenzhen

At Captivating, we love it when whole communities get excited about helping other communities. The teachers, students and families of QSI Shenzhen have done just that. With creative fundraising ideas and a lot of community spirit, QSI students and staff were able to raise RMB12,000 (US$1,700). These funds will enable us to bring hope to impoverished families in Western China through Greenhouses.
