“My dream has come true!” – Vocational School Scholarships opening doors for girls

Sangjyd joined the Captivating Vocational School Scholarship (VSS) project in August 2016. Her dream was to become a teacher. She always loved to learn but had to drop school during middle school, because her father and disabled mother were too poor to continue sending her.

Through the VSS project, Sangjyd studied kindergarten teaching. “I love to talk and sing and dance, so teaching children is the perfect job for me,” beamed Sangjyd during her studies.

After 3 years of studies, she has just graduated and is thrilled to share her good news with the world. “At the end of my internship at a local school, the school director informed me that I am officially hired and my paid job will start in September. I am very lucky to be in my favorite career. Time flies when I am doing the thing I love most. I really like spending time with the children in the classroom. I call them ‘my children’ and they surprise me every day with the way they learn so quickly.”

Carrie [project manager] said that she remembers seeing Sangjyd for the first time. 3 years ago she was shy, not in school and had a very limited future. In just 3 short years, she is now an independent and confident young lady who is living out her dream. Congratulations Sangjyd. We wish you all the very best in your teaching career.

We’d like to especially thank Sylvio & Julie and Julie B for sponsoring Sandgjyid and giving her this amazing opportunity. You have given her a bright future. Thank you to ZURU for funding 50% of this amazing project. There are currently 220 girls in the Vocational School Scholarship project. Sangjyd is one of 47 girls who have just completed their 3rd and final year of studies including their internship. This project will open doors for each of these girls and give them opportunities of independence and confidence, just like Sangjyd.
