142 pairs of new boots = 1420 warm toes this winter. 142 children say “Thank you Baia”

Chuga Charity School was founded in 1996 by a local well respected Lhama named Gabo. It was established to help local orphans and children from poor families, who are struggling for their children’s fundamental education. This school has taught grade one to five since it started and there are 142 students (over 100 are girls) and 5 volunteer teachers at the school. They are taught Tibetan, Chinese and Math.

Thanks to Baia Restaurant in Shekou, Captivating International was able to provide a new pair of warm boots to every student at this school in cooperation with our Qinghai registered charity partner, Shamtse Charity. This was a wonderful gift to the children at the beginning of a new semester, and they were really excited about it. As soon as the children arrived at the school, one after another, the principle Lhama started organizing them for the boots distribution along with all the teachers. The children were very happy to receive the boots, and it was a wonderful surprise for them.

The school principal said the following to us. “The children at our school either come from very poor families or they have lost their parents.  It is usually very cold here and the children need warm clothes and boots for keeping warm. But, to receive NEW boots – all the children feel very special and proud.”

Thank you Baia Restaurant for your support of this project. We greatly appreciate your desire to help make a difference in the world through the activities and charity fundraisers you organize. This project has certainly brought relief and joy to 142 children.
