Bright Future for a Bright Young Lady

Nagmo comes from a poor family in a remote village. Her parents both worked hard until her mother had to undergo a surgery, leaving most of the responsibility of earning a living to her father. This left the family in dire financial difficulty. Because of this, Nagmo had to drop out of school after finishing grade 8.

Nagmo is a bright young lady who loves to learn. That’s why she is extremely grateful for getting the chance to return to school. She entered the Vocational School Scholarship Program in 2018, taking up Nursing. She shares her experience.

“When I first returned to school, I didn’t have clear plans of what I wanted to do in the future. Now, even my family says that I’ve changed a lot. I’ve become more optimistic and determined to reach my goals. This coming semester, I aim to pass the Nursing Qualification Certificate. I’ve reached out to other students who have passed the qualification exam before so I can be the most prepared I can be.

When the start of school was delayed due to the corona virus outbreak, I volunteered to disinfect the campus – working with other volunteers, cleaning the school, and helping prevent further spread of the virus. I’m glad to have been part of such a meaningful experience.

Thank you for all your kindness and support. Your help gave us hope and the opportunity to survive. Words cannot express how grateful I am.”

Nagmo is one of the 264 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 Lilianna W for sponsoring Nagmo so she can finish her schooling.

CHINA | EDUCATE GIRLS | VOCATIONAL SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS

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.

Dedicated Student and Role Model Mom

Although life in the countryside is free and happy, economic development here apparently cannot keep up with the rhythm outside, and the cultural gap is tremendous. The financial pressure is increasing every year, and sometimes life gets very difficult and confusing for me. I am Datintso. I am 22, and this is my story.
