My Incredible Month With Captivating

-by Charles Lynch 

I spent a month working as an intern for Captivating International at the Shekou office in Shenzhen, China.  What was clear from the onset about Captivating was to see so directly the dramatic difference the organization makes to communities around the world, with a fervent understanding that such hard work does make a huge difference to less fortunate people.

I was given the task of looking into the feasibility of organizing a 5k global run.  I am extremely pleased to say that Captivating is going through with Stop the Traffick 5K on September the 4th – a must-add date for everyone’s diary!

It goes without saying that my experience would have not been the same without the friendly and accommodating staff who are incredible at Captivating, putting the desperately important issues such as working to fund vital programs to stop human trafficking in Nepal; to invaluable education opportunities provided by the Seng Girls School in Tibet. Also, it has to be mentioned that Andrew has a fantastic leadership style in which I felt my suggestions were taken on board and listened to, something that doesn’t always happen with most interns.

EMOX1Overall, Captivating has helped me enormously as an individual and enlightened me to the serious plights around the world and assured me that I, and you, can make a big difference.  I greatly look forward to helping Captivating in the future and encourage everyone who can to support this outstandingly worthwhile organization.

Thank you Charles for your time and efforts. We loved having you as part of the team, even though it was for a short time. We wish you every success for the future and we know you will make a positive impact in everything you undertake.
