IN TOTAL, thanks to your support,

in 2019 we significantly impacted the lives of an estimated

CHINA | EDUCATE GIRLS | END POVERTY | HUSKY ENERGY TAILORING SKILLS PROGRAM FOR WOMEN

Tailoring Skills Training Providing Steady Income

Dechin's father was a self-taught tailor. It was through making clothes that her father got them through some of the most difficult times in their lives. One of which was when her mother had a back surgery. However, the monthly medication afterwards was too costly and their earnings were barely enough.




CHINA | HEALTHY VILLAGE PROGRAM

Passing on Good Health Practices

235 villagers including 96 women came out to the My Health, My Family, Our Safety project in their village. The team of doctors and nurses spent time with the villagers and explained good health practices and provided medical checks for those who needed them. Many women in thie community have never been to see a doctor mostly due to the remoteness of the region. It is a long and tiring trip to a medical centre.




CHINA | EDUCATE GIRLS | END POVERTY | VOCATIONAL SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS

Gaining Experience and Making Memories

Sonam is part of the Vocational School Scholarship Program (VSS). One of the best things about the VSS project, aside from giving these girls the opportunity for their dreams to come true, is that they also gain experiences in extracurricular activities and make memories they will remember for a long time. Sonam shares her experience with us.




CHINA | HEALTHY VILLAGE PROGRAM

Bringing Health Information to 228 Villagers

During the My Health, My Family, Our Safety awareness program, Gazangji received a consultation with the doctor. She could hardly express how much the health training and information meant to her. She was grateful for the opportunity to learn about disease prevention and how she can manage her health better. And this is the best part - she is excited to convey what she learned to her family and friends. Projects like this are successful when the participant start conversations about what they have learned.

Opportunity to Change the Future for My Family

In my uneducated state, it is difficult for me to find a place to work to earn sufficient money. Clothes are needed by each of us. I joined the Husky Energy Tailoring Skills for Women Program in July 2019. This was my opportunity to change the future for my family.

A Well-Informed Community is a Healthy and Safe Community

The 2019 My Health, My Family, Our Safety Project has begun in remote locations in Western China. A local doctor and a team of health professionals, coordinated by our partner Shamtse, will visit 10 different communities as part of this project. The team attended to the health needs of 258 community members (mostly females) on their first stop, including Zhongjia, a widow and single mom, from one of the villages.
