Dawa’s Internship at SGVTS

Dawa will receive her graduation certificate later this year. We are so proud of Dawa. Thank you to Tennelle & Felix and Deborah & Anders for sponsoring Dawa through her vocational training. You have opened a whole new world for her.

CHINA | EDUCATE GIRLS | MY FIRST JOB PROGRAM

A brand new future for a single mom with 3 children to support

Chogkyid beams as she tells us how grateful she is for this opportunity to learn a skill. “Cooking looks easy, but is quite hard. I especially need to learn to control the heat. It's very important in stir-frying. I've never cooked with vegetables before so this is an exciting time for me. In just a short few months, I have successfully learned to cook 22 different dishes. This is something I never thought I'd be able to do." When Chogkyid completes her training and internship, Shamtse [Captivating's in country partner] will help her secure her first job. She will be able to earn a good income, repay her debt and provide a bright future for herself and her children.
