109 students love their new learning center!

The JaJa Village book project has brought a place for the 109 children to learn, read and grow their knowledge. The students now have a learning center in the village where they can stay together to study after school or during weekends or vacations. Some of the kids even take reading books to school to read. The students love to borrow books from the library. It has encouraged them to spend more time reading books. The kids are excited to read story books with pictures and this is encouraging the students desire to write as well as draw. The students are learning so many new skills and are now motivated to learn and are excited to go to school.

JaJa Village (1)Ms Tangmojyid is a mother of 4 children, 3 of which attend the JaJa village primary school. “We have never bought the kids books except some writing papers or pencils because what we earn is not even enough for family daily living. We both are illiterate and we do not know what to buy even if we did have the money and were willing to spend it. My kids usually come home and play in the village after school.” When asked what difference this learning center has made to her children, she tells us, “Now they always go to the village learning center to read there together most of the time. They come home with stories and they like to tell each other what they have read. Sometime they share the stories in bed with me and I am learning a lot of things that I did not know before. Thanks for helping us and thanks for giving the kids access to more information and books.” Ms Yangmojyid is filled with hope and joy that her children have a better start to life than she and he husband had.

CHINA | EDUCATE GIRLS | END POVERTY | VOCATIONAL SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS

An Orphan's Life is About to Change

In August this year, 95 girls joined Captivating's Vocational School Scholarship program, bringing the total of girls in this 3 year program to 277. All these girls were found by our on-the-ground partner [Shamtse] to be out of school. Getting these girls back into school where they can learn a skill that will provide them with independence and job opportunities is important to us at Captivating. It's girls like Zhang who bring special meaning to this program.

A Mother's Sustainable Efforts to Send Her Children to School

"I always firmly believe that education can change the future, so it's important to me to send my children to school no matter how hard or tired I am. I didn't have the opportunity to get an education. Because of this, I haven't had a stable source of income, but I have to stick whatever I can for the sake of my children. Fortunately, with your encouragement and help, I have hope in my life."

CHINA | EDUCATE GIRLS | VOCATIONAL SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS

A Thousand-Mile Trip

62 girls in our second cohort of Vocational School Scholarship Program graduates, completed their courses in July 2020. Most of these girls were only able to go to school up to grade 9, with many dropping out even earlier. The key reasons being financial difficulty, prejudice on the part of their parents not valuing education for girls, and varying family circumstances. Their dreams of a career and independence were gone. But thanks to the Vocational School Scholarship program, dreams are coming true again. Luma is one of our graduating girls and she shares her story.
