A Brand New Library for the Girls’ School

The girls and teachers at Seng Girls Vocational Training School have been looking forward to having a library set up for several years. Now their dream has come true. A brand new library with more than 1,000 books has been recently set up. The Seng girls were thrilled to receive shelving to put all their precious books in order and , thanks for an anonymous donation received together with the devoted donors of the SGVTS to make this happen.

The girls have limited access to computers and the internet so text books are mostly the only reading materials they have. Since the library was set up, girls have access to more historical books, story books and science books. This is an exciting new chapter for the school.

Library (3)The school principal and girls are still looking forward to adding more Tibetan books to the library as 80% of current books are in Chinese, if you would like to donate to this cause, please contact tracy@captivating.org or go to the Captivating Website http://www.captivating.org/region/donate to make a donation.

If you would like to fund your very own project with Captivating, contact andrewc@captivating.org. He’d love to hear from you and has a long list of project possibilities aimed at bringing hope to children in need of your help.
