Right now, the Captivating Healthy Village Project is visiting remote villages and communities through Western China. This project is two-fold; 1) Much needed medical help is brought to these poor, remote locations, 2) Single mothers trapped in poverty and girls who are no longer in school are being discovered. This brings a wonderful opportunity to help in an even greater capacity. Below is a story of one mother who received greater help than she even dared to dream.
This single mother is 49 years old with two children. She has been sick for years without medical treatment. The medical information, health check and medicine that she was able to receive brought huge relief to her struggling little family. But this day was about to get a whole lot brighter for this mother. You see, her son dropped school when she got very sick. Now he is 18 years old and working hard to provide for his mother and sister. Her daughter dropped school in grade 8 when her husband passed away in an accident. Her dream for her children is the same as all mothers – she wants to see them have a bright future. Her daughter qualified for the Captivating Vocational School Scholarship Project and is currently being interviewed. If everything goes to plan, she will have the opportunity to go back to school in September 2019. “It was a dream I didn’t dare to dream. I didn’t think it would ever be possible for my daughter to finish school. Thank you”, she said through her tears.
Because of the Healthy Village Project, girls who have had to drop school because of poverty are given the opportunity to go back to school, learn a vocation and set themselves on the path to a bright future.
