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.

New Skills and Confidence

I only went to school for three years as a little girl because my parents couldn’t afford to send me anymore. Now that I have a son, I know it is my duty to provide for him but it is not easy when I have no education or skills. I am Jorbakyid and this is my story.
