In 2016, Yangtsokyid dropped out of school and helped her family by working at a clothing shop. She also did labor work at the construction site where her father works. But they weren’t earning enough to provide for the family and her sick mother.
She entered our Vocational School Scholarship Program in August 2019 where she studies Tibetan Medicine. She enjoys her experience and is doing well in her academics.
“I understand the value of going to school. I cherish the opportunity to go back to school. My dream is to become a doctor. It is your help that has given me the opportunity to follow my dreams. I have always believed that this world is kind and beautiful. I believe that there are people like you who help people in every corner of the world.”
“My Tibetan is good and I am also among the top 10 in the class. I like it here and I’m determined to do well. “
Yangtsokyid is one of the 102 girls who were able to get back in school in August 2019 thanks to the Vocational School Scholarship program. Thank you to Anna M for sponsoring Yangtsokyid and to Zuru for funding half of this wonderful program.
Huaifeng's home is on a remote hillside, and it takes her more than an hour of walking before she can ride a bus to school. Her mother left them when she was only one year old, while her father is working as a security guard in another city. She lives with her brother and her grandparents. Any support she receives is a great help for her to finish her studies.
Puyuxia, 19, comes from a rural area. She lives with her grandfather who raised her by himself ever since she was a little girl. Puyuxia's father died in an accident while her mother left them in search of a better life.
