Captivating and Heifer International (China) join forces
This month marks the beginning of a new six year village development initiative that will see 450 impoverished families step up and out of poverty. Captivating is thrilled to be partnering with Heifer International (China) and will be working directly with two of the poorest villages we can find in the challenging mountainous province of Guizhou.
Alicia Zheng from Captivating’s Shenzhen office has spearheaded this initiative with due diligence over the past 5 months and we are thrilled to be moving ahead with it. This project is focused on helping families to at least double their income earning potential and, in the process, ensure they can afford to keep their kids in school and, importantly, progressing through to high-school.
We will have many stories to tell about home businesses being established, animal husbandry, water treatment solutions, environmental improvement, and vegetation/crop developments.
A key part of this initiative is a family’s responsibility to “pass-on-the-gift”. This will see another family benefiting from this program every two to three years.
HOW YOU CAN HELP: We will be using family sponsorship as the key financing vehicle for this project. Our work will initially commence with 150 families. You can sponsor one of these families for US$40 a month/$480 a year and we will keep you updated on their progress. Not only that, if you continue your support from year to year, you will also start to see other recipient families who start to benefit from your support thanks to the passing-on-of-the-gift program. Please contact us directly on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to sponsor a family. Family details will be available soon on our website www.captivating.org
