You can help girls like Pema

Pema and her mother live in desperate poverty in rural Qinghai. And like thousands of other 13-year-old girls just like her, she is at risk of becoming pregnant as a teenager, exposed to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and HIV/AIDS or – even worse – one day, she might simply disappear.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Last year, Pema’s mother attended Captivating’s Healthy Village Program where she received a much needed health examination, medicines, hygiene products and important training about life-saving information such as basic hygiene, protected sex, and preventing STDs and HIV/AIDs.

And then she came home and shared that information with her daughter.

CHANGE starts with information and knowledge and is the first line of defense in keeping girls like Pema out of harm’s way.

On October 14, in Shenzhen China, we host our annual CAPTIVATING CHARITY AUCTION. This is a critical night of fundraising, helping us to achieve our program goals in China. We know not everyone can make it to the auction but are hoping you might still join hands with us from  wherever you are in the world. This year, we hope you could get behind this program. You can donate between NOW and midnight October 14.

Donating just RMB400 / US$60 before midnight October 14, 5 more families just like Pema and her mother will be able to benefit from Captivating’s next Healthy Village Program.

Note: All donations from USA & Hong Kong are tax deductible.
