From the grasslands to medical professionals

At Captivating, our goal is to help equip girls with education and skills that will sustainably open doors for them. Our aim is to give them opportunities that will give them wings to soar.  7 girls have been studying nursing over a four year vocational program, and we are so proud of all their achievements.

My name is Lahrchem. I am currently doing my nursing internship in a hospital. So far, I’ve been in three different departments – Hepatology, General Internal Medicine and Gynecology. Currently, I’m interning in the area of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and I can see newborns every day. My work is focused in labor, delivery, and newborn care. In Obstetric I have learned much in specialist knowledge and operations, and post-partum care. My daily work is measuring vital signs, IV fluids, perineal washing, giving oxygen, catheterization, bathing and dressing the infants, and infant swim therapy.

My name is Santen. I work full-time in a hospital in a large city. I mainly do acupuncture and cupping therapy in the hospital, because my major is Tibetan medicine. There are good doctors at the hospital I work with, and I have learned a lot from them. I have a one year contract with the hospital and I hope I can renew the contract next year. Life is much better now. I don’t have to ask my family for money or get support from Captivating, instead, I can help support them now. With the help of my sponsor, teacher and classmates my life has been changed for the better. The most important change is I have a dream, which is to become a doctor. If I didn’t go to medical school I wouldn’t have had an idea where I would want to be or what I would want to do. I would have been on the grasslands for the rest of my life.

My name is YungChin and I am studying medicine. I am very lucky to receive quality training. I first went to the department of Orthopedics, and Surgery. There I learned about T tubes, stomach tubes, and how to give injections, into-venous needles, and insulin shots. I have read many books about orthopedics. I also need to do a class reports, and measure pulses, body temperatures, breathing, blood sugar, perineum care and many other related topics. Every day, after rotations, I go to the operation room to watch and learn while the professional doctors operate. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.

Thank you to KONG, David & Adele, Tom & Shelly, and Penny & the Whalen Supply Chain for sponsoring these young ladies through their studies at the SGVTS program and then during their 3 year nursing studies. You have changed their world.
