New Found Independence and Sustainable Living

Caihangji graduated from junior high school in 2013, but because of her family’s impoverished condition, she couldn’t continue her education. She helped tend the family’s grazing sheep for 3 years by going out in the fields every morning and returning in the evening. “When I take care of the sheep on the mountain, I get bored and tired. My day is mainly eating dry steamed buns, drink cold water, and sometimes, when there are wolves, I set off firecrackers to frighten them. Most of the time on the mountain, I listen to songs to relieve boredom,” explains Caihangji.

Caihangji enrolled in the Vocational School Scholarship program in 2016 and majored in Medicine. After two years of hard work in school and one year of internship, she graduated as one of the top 10 in her class of 29 students. She is now officially employed as a pharmacist and earns a good monthly salary. She is very excited about her new found independence and ability to earn good money.

“This education opportunity has changed my life. I’m doing things I like to make a living. I know that with this new job, I can start saving and have my own house in the future.”

Thank you to Dean and Chris for sponsoring Caihangji through her studies and giving her a future to be proud of. Thank you to ZURU for funding 50% of this life changing program, currently bringing hope to 267 girls who are now back in school.
