Drolmajyid is one of 150 women who received life-changing help

Drolmajyid is a single mother of 3 children. She is 35 years old and has never been to school. Her 2 sons are going to to school however she isn’t able to send all her children to school so her 8 year old daughter is not attending school.

Because of the remote location in which she lives and because she is poor, Drolmajyid delivered her 3 children at home and had never seen a doctor to receive either prenatal or postnatal care. Being a part of the Healthy Village program, she received a medical check-up and the doctor  found her to be seriously sick. She was given medicine and treatment she needed and is making a good recovery. Drolmajyid is grateful for the lifesaving help she received. She now knows how to keep herself healthy and is training her children to be strong and healthy young people.

Drolmajyid and 150 women and 50 men are now wiser regarding their health and the health of the families. This small township in remote Western China was visited by 2 doctors and a nurse along with our program partner and Qinghai registered Shamtse Charity. Medical and hygiene supplies were distributed and community presentations were carried out that included information about STDs, how to care for babies, women’s health and safe hygiene practice. Medical checks were carried out in this township and for many of these women, just like Drolmajyid, they received their very first health check.

Thank you to Red Ribbon for making it possible for this remote township to be part of the Captivating Healthy Village Program. Lives have been changed because of you.

An Orphan's Life is About to Change

In August this year, 95 girls joined Captivating's Vocational School Scholarship program, bringing the total of girls in this 3 year program to 277. All these girls were found by our on-the-ground partner [Shamtse] to be out of school. Getting these girls back into school where they can learn a skill that will provide them with independence and job opportunities is important to us at Captivating. It's girls like Zhang who bring special meaning to this program.

A Mother's Sustainable Efforts to Send Her Children to School

"I always firmly believe that education can change the future, so it's important to me to send my children to school no matter how hard or tired I am. I didn't have the opportunity to get an education. Because of this, I haven't had a stable source of income, but I have to stick whatever I can for the sake of my children. Fortunately, with your encouragement and help, I have hope in my life."

Diligent Mum Now with Stable Employment

When she first joined the My First Job Assistant Chef Program, she was nervous and worried that she would slow down the class' progress because other women may already be more skilled than her. Dongzhikyid doubled her efforts, working diligently everyday on the assignments the teacher gave them, and was able to keep up with everyone else.

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.
