We can Change the World…
with a little help of Santa

Yes, Santa Claus is coming to town, in fact quite a few of them! On December 9th 2017, in collaboration with the SHENZHEN CHARITY FEDERATION, Captivating is holding its inaugural Santa Run and we would love you to be part of it.

Together we will be raising funds for our projects which help children progress in their schooling and aid parents improve their livelihoods.

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 were joined by another 30 girls in September 2017.

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

In remote locations, our registered partners find many older girls who have missed MOST of their schooling. They are largely illiterate and need a lucky break. My First Job are programs experts training girls to become either Assistant Chefs or Home Services support 60 girls will be helped this year. Our team will then safely transition and mentor girls into their first job.

GPA Greenhouses – QINGHAI

Materials, construction assistance/mentoring, as well as latest Greenhouse growing techniques and support will be provided to 200 needy 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 70 families over 5 villages and an estimated 140 children.



Healthy Village Program – QINGHAI

Now in its 4rd year as a Captivating program, Nomadic herding families are being taught basic healthcare. Many live with chronic illness, higher than normal rates of infant mortality, and infectious diseases.  2017’s program will focus on Salar, Tibetan, Hui villagers, training on healthy living, STD’s/AIDS, childcare, hygiene etc.  Multiple “two-day-long” presentations will be made at each of 10 townships, and will train over 3,500 people.

1,500 women will receive a medical examination.  This is an important investment in the wellbeing of their next generation.

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, played with and taught life skills.  Captivating supports 60% of their operating costs.
