3 Seng Girls start another year of Medical school

Thanks to the ongoing support of their individual sponsors and the incredible Medical School scholarship program funded by KONG, a Hong Kong based Company, three Seng Girls continue to progress well in their Medical school studies.

Our latest update is that the two original girls (Santen and Lahrchen) are doing very well and enjoying their studies. Santen is performing around the middle of her class and Lahrchen is currently one of the top-performing students. We’re very excited about these results. They are both on target to finish the class based part of the program by the end of this year (2015) and then they commence the one year practical aspect of the program which will see them based at a hospital receiving on-the-job instruction. They will complete the full program by the end of 2016 if all goes well.

Drol Tso was the third Seng Girls admitted into this program, and started her studies in early 2014. She will finish her studies a year later than the other two (2017). She is going well, although finding this first year extremely challenging just like the first two girls did. We have capacity for one more girl to join this program, and so several new girls will be sitting their admission exams in March to see if they can win a spot. This means 4 girls will be beneficiaries of this wonderful KONG Medical School Scholarship Program.KONG-Logo

Once again, we look at what these girls are able to do and it is only possible thanks to the generous support of their sponsors, and the amazing Scholarship provided by KONG. This is absolutely their dreams coming true and we can’t wait to see where this leads them in the years to come. We think of where these girls come from before LOVEQTRA and the Seng Girls Home program found them. Now their futures will have many different roads open to them.

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."

Diligent Mum Now with Stable Employment

When she first joined the My First Job Assistant Chef Program, she was nervous and worried that she would slow down the class' progress because other women may already be more skilled than her. Dongzhikyid doubled her efforts, working diligently everyday on the assignments the teacher gave them, and was able to keep up with everyone else.

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.
