Hope for Her Village

Since it started in 2016, My First Job Program has established a good reputation in the provinces in Western China. A village director from one of the towns learned about Captivating and the My First Job Program through one of our program coordinators. She then connected with our on-the-ground partner and expressed the need for the training to be conducted for the women in her village. The people in her village rely solely on farming, and those who don’t have their own land to till are hoping to find another way to support their family.

Through proper coordination, the My First Job Assistant Chef program was successfully launched in the village where 28 women were accepted.

Earlier this month, the third group of trainees had their midterm exam to check on their progress. The women drew lots to decide which dish they are going to make. The teacher was happy with everyone’s results and is optimistic that they can master even more types of dishes for the remainder of the training.

We look forward to reaching more places with local leaders standing at the forefront to bring hope to their communities.

Thank you to Zuru, SWIS, GPA Global and the Captivating Annual Charity Auction, for making this possible.
