Winter time at Seng Girls Vocational Training School

The campus in winter is white and it looks like a white coat on the roof of the buildings.

In the morning, the students are wearing thick clothes, and because winter is cold, their face are red. During the winter, the children are the most active. Everyone else is trying to stay warm. After class, the students very quickly run out of the classroom like happy birds. Everywhere you can see students who are playing. Some are on the playground, some are running, some are making snowballs. They are all very happy.

In the previous winters, the students needed to wash their clothes by themselves. However, this winter is different. We now have two washing machines. The clothes washed in the washing machine are very clean and easy to dry. After the clothes are washed, they are put next to the heating in the rooms. No matter how thick, the clothes will be dried the next day.

In the winter, the students are susceptible to cold. Every week, two or three students have a cold. If the students are uncomfortable, our teachers will take the students to the hospital and they also remind students to take medicine. The teachers make sure the students wear thick clothes when they go outside to play in the beautiful white snow.

The the students love winter time at the Seng Girls Vocational Training School.

An Orphan's Life is About to Change

In August this year, 95 girls joined Captivating's Vocational School Scholarship program, bringing the total of girls in this 3 year program to 277. All these girls were found by our on-the-ground partner [Shamtse] to be out of school. Getting these girls back into school where they can learn a skill that will provide them with independence and job opportunities is important to us at Captivating. It's girls like Zhang who bring special meaning to this program.

A Mother's Sustainable Efforts to Send Her Children to School

"I always firmly believe that education can change the future, so it's important to me to send my children to school no matter how hard or tired I am. I didn't have the opportunity to get an education. Because of this, I haven't had a stable source of income, but I have to stick whatever I can for the sake of my children. Fortunately, with your encouragement and help, I have hope in my life."
