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.

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.
