Never Too Old to Learn

My name is Lhanchintso. I am from Qinghai Province. I am 31 years old and dropped out of school after the third grade. I am a single mother living with my parents. My daughter is 10 years old and going to school now. My mother has lung disease and is seriously ill. It is up to me to take care of my parents and my daughter and provide for them financially.

My main sources of income are the small jobs I am able to find during the summer and winter vacations.

Being part of the My First Job Assistant Chef Program has changed my life. Although I am not good at reading and writing, I am proud that I am learning these things as well as a skill that will help me secure a good job that will give me financial security. I have made many new friends who are a huge support to me.

Lhamotso is just one of the many young women the My First Job Assistant Chef Program has helped acquire new skills and lay down a foundation for future employment.

Thank you to ZURU for half funding the My First Job programs. Thank you also to the Shenzhen Midnight Charity Run, WIK, GPA, SWIS, CAF America, and all those who purchased a plush toy at the Annual Charity Auction.
