Tashi entered the Vocational School Scholarship Program in 2018, and took up Preschool Education as her chosen vocational study. Her family used to borrow money so she could study but it all became too difficult financially so she had to drop school after she finished grade 8. She shares her experiences and dreams with us.
“I came to this school with a dream – a dream not just to simply become a teacher, but an excellent educator who can pass on knowledge to children.
Since I entered the program, I’ve learned so many things. Despite moments of high academic pressure, I am working hard to keep up with all the lessons. I enjoy my life at school and participate in as many activities as I can.
In one year, I’ll be able to graduate. Before that, I have to complete my internship. What is important for me is to help children progress in their studies and figure out a way to make learning more efficient and enjoyable for them.
I will always think of ways to help other students, just like how you’ve helped me during my most difficult times. Words can’t express how much I am grateful for all your help. Thank you.”
Tashi is one of the 253 girls currently enrolled in the Vocational School Scholarship program. Thank you to ZURU for funding half of this life-changing program and thank you to PCH for sponsoring Tashi so she can finish her schooling.

Huaifeng's home is on a remote hillside, and it takes her more than an hour of walking before she can ride a bus to school. Her mother left them when she was only one year old, while her father is working as a security guard in another city. She lives with her brother and her grandparents. Any support she receives is a great help for her to finish her studies.
