Two Seng Girls Doing Well in Dance School

Thanks to arrangements made by our Qinghai based partner, LOVEQTRA, two girls who had been previously based at Project Eden learning Chinese are now progressing well in their first year at a Chinese Dance school. Many of the Seng girls dream of becoming professional dancers, but for these two, it looks like that dream might become reality. They are experiencing the chance of a lifetime. Dockpo Tra, founder and director of the SGVTS program now caring for in excess of 140 girls, is happy to report that although older than most of the other dance students due to their late start in school, both Damchu and Jigmed are doing very well, working hard and enjoying every moment of this 3 year opportunity. Their dance and Chinese teachers report they are working harder than most to ensure they are not wasting this great opportunity. Our congratulations to Damchu and Jigmed, LOVEQTRA and the girls sponsors – keep up the great work.
