Ensuring a future for one young lady

Captivating is proud to introduce Tserang Dorma. Life for Tserang has been filled with challenges however she has always worked hard to secure a future for herself. This year, her circumstances changed as you will read in her letter below. Captivating has sponsored Tserang Dorma’s college tuition fees for 2016. We know Terang Dorma will make us proud and we are glad to be able to offer her this opportunity to continue her education.

“My name is Tserang Dorma. I was born in 1996, in Gansu Province. I am from a farmer’s family. When I was 3 years old my father died because of sickness. My mother couldn’t endure this evil deed, so she went to the Nunnery and became a Buddhist nun. Thereby, I live with my grandfather. Our basic living allowances are from government support and few income from me, doing some part-time jobs, after school. And there is the Compulsory Education that I could rely on to continue my study. This year [2015], I graduated from high school, and admitted to Gannan Normal University. That meant I needed more money to achieve Grandfather’s and my own dream. But how can we afford it? I was going to give up, but we tried our best to continue my education. Being an educated person is the only way to a good future! My grandfather has been maintaining my education in the past years. Nevertheless, in September this year grandfather left me [he died]. I want to persevere my dearest grandfather’s and my dream to be an educated person, finish college life and repay warm heart people’s help. Therefore, with Captivating’s help I have been able to pursue my dream and accomplish my dearest grandfather’s wish. I am here to commit to contributing to the society and to fulfill the people’s expectation on me to my best. Thank you again!”
