Sangje had to drop out of school three years ago because of financial difficulties. After her mother got divorced, they had to leave home, taking nothing with them – no cattle or sheep, and no grassland. All their mother had was her and her two other siblings.
Her mother supported them as much as she could, even borrowing money when they did not have enough. Her two sisters was able to continue their schooling, however Sangje had to drop out and take on several jobs to help with the family’s finances. She worked here and there as a waitress, concierge, and kitchen assistant. Even though her wages were small, it helped her mother and sisters.
Sangje joined the Vocational School Scholarship in September this year. “My mother said that we should cherish this opportunity for me to go back to school and study hard. Returning to school is a great opportunity for me to be equipped with knowledge and skills. I like what I am studying now (Tibetan medicine) as it helps me gain better understanding and improve my logical thinking. I’m happy that I’ll be able to do a noble and meaningful career in the future. I am confident that I will complete my studies in the coming three years.”
We are so glad that Kim E sponsored Sangje. Because of you, this young lady is back in school with a bright future ahead of her.
