The opportunity to go back to school

Drugmo is 22 years old and lives with her grandmother. She comes from a nomadic rural area and attended the Healthy Village Project in December 2018. She was one of over 10 girls who the Shamtse team [Captivating’s in-country partner] have personally met because of the Healthy Village Project. These girls have dropped school because of poverty. Her mother passed away when she was only 6 years old, and they don’t know who her father is as she was born to her mother outside of marriage. All she has known, is life with her grandmother.

Her grandmother has been a great support during her school years, until she finished grade 9. “I was doing well at school and received many awards for school competitions. My grandmother was so proud of me and displayed all my awards on our wall at home. Unfortunately, my aging grandmother couldn’t continue to support me to go to school. Since grade 9, I have been home.”

Because of the Healthy Village Project, our team is able to meet girls like Drugmo. These girls want to secure themselves a future that will open doors which would otherwise be impossible. Further interviews will be conducted over the next few months with the hope that Drugmo and many other girls who had to drop school, will be able to enter our Vocational School Scholarshipprogram when the new school year starts in August 2019.
