153 women received health checks

Over 400 people attended the most recent Healthy Village Project in a remote area of Western China and 153 women received health checks. For many, it was their very first, much needed Doctor’s checkup. Rigjyid is one of the women who came along to the program in her village and this is her story.

Rigjyid is a 34 year old single mother, who has never been to school, is illiterate and raising her two daughters. She doesn’t’ have a house or any livestock from which to earn an income. Rigjyid relies on her mother and sister to help support the family. Her 15 year old daughter had to drop school when she was in grade 8 because they could not afford to send her. Her youngest daughter is at the township school however she will also need to drop school when she gets to middle school because they cannot support the costs. “I got divorced and had to take our two daughters with me as their father did not want them. I have been very sick and could not support my oldest girl at the school any more. She is back home to help my mother home. I am too sick to work. I have appreciated the visit from the Doctor and talked with him about my concerns. I learned a lot about how to manage and help improve my health. Thank you for coming to my village.”  

The Healthy Village Project brings even more to women like Rigjyid. These women know that education is key to their daughters having a bright future, but often it is out of reach. Conversations and interviews continue, with plans to return their daughters to school through Captivating’s Vocational School Scholarship Program, so they can complete their education.
