QSI Lower Elementary Create Activity Room at Eden.

Students and teachers from QSI Lower Elementary school in Shekou have been planning all year to visit project Eden and give the kids a wonderful Christmas!  This past December, all the planning became a reality and QSI enabled a food drive to provide much needed non-perishable foods for the children at project Eden. But if that wasn’t enough, the team also planned and carried out a major conversion of one of the old rooms at Eden into an activity room for the children.  The room was painted in very bright, exciting colors, and activities were set up including paper crafts, textile crafts and board games along with the main attraction of a ping pong table! The kids were truly surprised and excited over what was done for them and so we want to truly thank you all for the tremendous work and huge generosity of time and donations from Kelsey and the LE community service team. Pictures can only tell the story of the transformation that took place, and we at Captivating can’t thank you enough for how you continue to change the lives of those at Eden.  Thank you for taking the time!  Thank you for caring!

CHINA | MY FIRST JOB PROGRAM

For My Parents

My name is Lhamotso and I am 22 years old. I have had very little education and so I have never had a job where I can earn a good income. My family rely on our livestock to survive but last winter was really heavy snow and five of our cattle were trapped. We couldn’t do anything about it. This devastated my family.
