Success in 2015 leads to renewed energy for 2016

Our thanks to the 2015 Annual CAPTIVATING SHENZHEN CHARITY AUCTION (Oct 2015) and the Macau Oilmans Golf Tournament committee for supporting the Healthy Village Education project implemented in Nov/Dec 2015. We are thrilled with the result which exceeded our original project objectives in terms of numbers of people reached.

Healthy Village 2015 Sponsor LogosFor us, this program is more than important health training and, for many, giving them their first medical inspection (which identifies so many critical health issues for them to think about). It’s about gaining a high level of trust in close to 100 remote village communities – communities that have many other pressing issues relating to their poverty. Ultimately, Captivating is about helping children who have fallen into problems and desperate circumstances. This program helps us see many opportunities to continue our mission objective of helping children “reach out for a better tomorrow” – whether this be getting children back to school, or helping families improve their incomes so they can solve their own problems. Thank you for your support for our 2015 Healthy Village Education Program. Together, we’ve reached out to over 3,000 parents and their families.

Our plan is to run this program again in 2016 in different villages who haven’t yet been given this valuable and lifesaving information. We need your help. If you would like to partner with us, receive updates and a thank you photo with your name on the banner, please contact andrewc@captivating.org.
