We can Change the World.


On October 14th, 2017, in collaboration with the SHENZHEN CHARITY FEDERATION,
Captivating is holding our 9th Annual Captivating Charity Auction.

EVERY THREE HOURS a girl somewhere in China, Nepal or Africa has her life significantly and positively impacted by a Captivating supported program. Help us keep our China partners and programs progressing.

With your support, 1,000 girls in China and many of their families will see their lives transformed this year.

Our Mission
We believe within every child lives the potential for greatness – something of incredible value they can offer to their world. For some, much of this value is lost because of poverty or prejudice. Our mission is to see disadvantaged, impoverished, poorest-of-the-poor children soar – see them reach out for a better tomorrow.

Our Projects

Seng Girls Vocational Training School -QINGHAI

We continue our support of this program run by LOVEQTRA, now in our 9th year.  Captivating are the primary funders of this work, helping over 100 girls through elementary school and beyond. Girls come to this school either due to poverty or prejudice.  Most have missed most of their schooling before starting in this program. It is their dream come true.


Vocational School Scholarships – QINGHAI

140 girls (who have already dropped out of school) will be given the opportunity to complete a government subsidized 3 year vocational high-school program. The final year of this program will be an internship into (what is hopefully) their first job. Our team will mentor them through the program and into their first job. 60 girls started the program in 2016, and will this year be joined by another 80 girls.

My First Job – Assistant Chef  & Home Services Training – QINGHAI

In remote locations, we are finding many older girls who have missed MOST of their schooling. They are largely illiterate and need a lucky break. We will run two programs this year training girls to become either Assistant Chefs or Home Services support. Our team will then safely transition and mentor girls into their first job.

Each training group consists of 20 girls.

GPA Greenhouses – QINGHAI

Materials, construction assistance/mentoring, as well as latest Greenhouse growing techniques and support will be provided to 200 desperate families. Success will mean children are more secure in school, are healthier, and parents have extra income.

Benefits 200 families and over 400 children.

Captivating/HEIFER China Village Development Program –YUNNAN

Now in the final phase of a 6 year development program in partnership with Heifer China, we are helping 150 impoverished families (and their 200+ children) address their poverty through animal husbandry and agricultural solutions.  450 families will be helped by this program at the conclusion.

Pigs for Poverty – QINGHAI

Two breeding piglets (sows) will be provided to qualifying families along with training on how to manage a profitable breeding program. We will help 300 families over 5 villages.



Healthy Village Program – QINGHAI

Now in its 4rd year as a Captivating program, Nomadic herding families don’t know basic healthcare. They live with chronic illness, high rates of infant mortality, and infectious diseases.  2017’s program will focus on Salar, Tibetan, Hui, Chinese and Mongolian villagers, training on healthy living, STD’s/AIDS, childcare, hygiene etc.  Multiple “three-day-long” presentations will be made at each of 11 townships, and will train over 3,500 people.

1,500 women will receive first time medical examinations.  Over 90 villages will be reached including local township schools.  This is an important investment in the wellbeing of their children.

HOUSE OF JOY – Guizhou Province. A program helping special needs children in a Welfare Institution.  – GUIZHOU

This will be our 3rd year supporting this project. In partnership with a Guizhou based Chinese Welfare Institution, this project provides off-site respite for 100 older special needs children to be loved, showered, played with, and taught life skills.  Captivating supports 60% of their operating costs.


Capacity Building Program – QINGHAI

50 university level students with an interest in NGO work will be trained to become tomorrow’s NGO leaders. Now in its 4th year, qualifying students will be taught how to assess and manage projects, write up funding proposals, and secure funding.  Student proposals form the basis of our Captivating Small Budget Projects.

Saturday, October 22, 2016 once again saw guests filling the grand ballroom of the Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen China, in support of the Annual Captivating Charity Auction. The event, now in its 8th year, was run in partnership with the Shenzhen Charity Federation – a fantastic partnership that will continue into the future. The evening was amazing. The results were worth it. Net revenue for the night after deducting event and venue expenses was an amazing RMB 1.08million. Through Captivating’s charity partners: The Shenzhen Charity Federation; SHAMTSE; and LOVEQTRA (The Seng Girls Home), funds raised from this year’s event were used to impact the lives of more than 1,000 girls and many of their families in remote locations of Western China. With a focus on solutions such as greenhouses, solar panels, animal husbandry, health education and vocational school scholarships, Captivating and their partners made dreams come true thanks to the generosity of donors and sponsors.

Saturday, October 17, 2015 marked Captivating International’s 7th Annual Charity Gala & Auction once again at the glamorous Futian Shangri-La. Attended by a record breaking (and maximum capacity) 597 guests from Shenzhen and Hong Kong, the evening was awarded the ‘best event ever’ label by many long-term event attendees. Our thanks to an amazing auction committee and team for so many hours of dedicated work. The results were worth it, raising HK$1.6m (US$215k) to support the work in Nepal and Western China.

Saturday, October 11, 2014 marked Captivating International’s 6th Annual Charity Gala & Auction at the Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen, China. Attended by 530 guests largely from Shenzhen’s foreign community, the event started with an amazing high energy dance performance by students from local international schools, QSI & SIS, along with several girls from the Seng Girls Vocational School and Home program. This wonderful dance set the tone for the night to the theme, “We are full of Wonder” – testament to the fact that all children around the world have so much to offer, and yet many cannot do so because of poverty, injustice or prejudice. Thanks to amazing sponsors, donors and auction winners, RMB1.56 million was raised to support work in Western China through approved local charities.
