New My First Job Program Commenced

Another My First Job Assistant Chef Program commenced in one beautiful rural village in the western region of China. The local people mostly depend on herding yaks and sheep for their livelihood, but for those who do not own any livestock, life is quite difficult.

On August 3, the third My First Job program this year was launched wherein 30 women were accommodated. In the next three months, they will receive intensive cooking training. Mastering a new skill – cooking – will allow them to explore more opportunities and means of livelihood apart from the traditional herding life.

Thank you to Zuru, SWIS, GPA Global and the Captivating Annual Charity Auction, for offering these 30 women a chance to change their lives.
