Instilling Health Awareness in Remote Places

Over 10 villages were part of the 2019/2020 My Health, My Family, Our Safety project. 289 villagers attended the program at one of the project stops. Everyone who was part of the program, was given free medicine and other health and hygiene products. They also learned about gynecological diseases and basic healthcare knowledge.The learning doesn’t stop with those who attended but talked about further at home, impacting even more people.

“My two children are in high school and are both doing excellently in their studies. I feel proud and happy seeing that they no only cherish their education, but also make time to help me with household work. I want my family to have a better life so I save up as much as I can. I am reluctant to spend for hospitalization, even if I am seriously ill. My back usually aches but I just bear it, thinking that it is nothing serious. I have never considered taking care of my health as a priority.”

“Fortunately, there are people like you who provide health education programs to remote and isolated villages like ours.”

“Because of the information in this program, we are able to understand our own health conditions and get treated with the appropriate medicine. Despite the cold the weather, the staff and the doctors served all of us well. Thank you very much! We hope that you can visit this area again, spread health knowledge, and instill health awareness in this remote place.”

Thank you to Jason and Holiday and ASBV Charity for funding the My Health, My Family, Our Safety project in this village.

An Orphan's Life is About to Change

In August this year, 95 girls joined Captivating's Vocational School Scholarship program, bringing the total of girls in this 3 year program to 277. All these girls were found by our on-the-ground partner [Shamtse] to be out of school. Getting these girls back into school where they can learn a skill that will provide them with independence and job opportunities is important to us at Captivating. It's girls like Zhang who bring special meaning to this program.

A Mother's Sustainable Efforts to Send Her Children to School

"I always firmly believe that education can change the future, so it's important to me to send my children to school no matter how hard or tired I am. I didn't have the opportunity to get an education. Because of this, I haven't had a stable source of income, but I have to stick whatever I can for the sake of my children. Fortunately, with your encouragement and help, I have hope in my life."

Diligent Mum Now with Stable Employment

When she first joined the My First Job Assistant Chef Program, she was nervous and worried that she would slow down the class' progress because other women may already be more skilled than her. Dongzhikyid doubled her efforts, working diligently everyday on the assignments the teacher gave them, and was able to keep up with everyone else.

CHINA | EDUCATE GIRLS | VOCATIONAL SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS

A Thousand-Mile Trip

62 girls in our second cohort of Vocational School Scholarship Program graduates, completed their courses in July 2020. Most of these girls were only able to go to school up to grade 9, with many dropping out even earlier. The key reasons being financial difficulty, prejudice on the part of their parents not valuing education for girls, and varying family circumstances. Their dreams of a career and independence were gone. But thanks to the Vocational School Scholarship program, dreams are coming true again. Luma is one of our graduating girls and she shares her story.
