The future’s looking good for Dechen Tso – “Thanks Project Eden”

Eden exists to help girls who have fallen behind with their education. The future for many of these girls is bleak, with low to no job opportunities and no way to ever come close to achieving their dreams. Eden’s goal is always for them to know they are loved and precious, and to try to prepare them to be kind and responsible adults. With catch-up education and vocational-school education, Eden is preparing these young ladies to find good jobs and gain independence.

jenny (4)“My name is Dechen Tso. My English name is Jenny. There are four people in my family: my mom, my younger brother, my grandmother and me. I came to Eden three years ago. This year, I began studying in a vocational high-school, and my chosen course of study is the computer. I like this major, and my school days are very full. At first, it was very hard to keep up with my classes in computer, but now I am in the upper-middle of my class. I love to play basketball in my spare time; I have lots of teammates and they are very friendly. On week-ends, I now have a part-time job at Pizza Hut, and get to meet and serve lots of people. I still come back to Eden whenever I can, even if it is only for one day a week. This is my life, and it is very substantial because of your help. I will have a happy life. Thank you!”

jenny (5)Thank you to Dechen Tso’s sponsor, Ray C. You have given Dechen the opportunity to learn and grow her skills. She is well on her way to independence.
