Making Her Life Better

One of our projects for the My First Job program in China is the Embroidery Skills Training. Behind the faces of each of the students is an encouraging story of hope and perseverance. One of them is Rinzin and this is her story:

There are five people in her family. She has to take care of her three young children and cannot go out to earn money to support their family, so the burden of earning money falls on her husband alone. The main source of the family’s income is from whatever they can do on their land to earn money. They have no education and do not have many ways to earn money.

She has had a great interest in embroidery since she was a child. She usually embroids some Tibetan wears at home for selling, but she could not sell them at a good price. Sometimes she cannot find buyers, so she has to sell the embroidered works cheaply.

She was fortunate enough to participate in this embroidery training and learn the craft well. She will use this craft to subsidize her family in the future. During the training, she learned a lot when it comes to embroidery skills and knowledge about selling her creations. Now she sells her products online, and she sells them at a good price.

She has a smile on her face that she has never had before. She will continue to improve her craft and hopes to walk more steadily and longer on this road.

“Many thanks to all the leaders for providing us with such a good training opportunity, I will continue to work hard to make my life better and better.”
