Captivating’s ONE MORE YEAR School Scholarship Program – YUNNAN, SICHUAN
Keeping underprivileged girls from remote poor locations in vocational or senior high school
The longer a girl can stay in school the better her future prospects. There are varying reasons girls decide to drop school ranging from poverty or prejudice, to thinking they are not smart enough to succeed.
Our “ONE MORE YEAR” program aims to keep girls from poor areas in school for longer – motivating them to stay for just one more year, and, maybe another, and another – inspiring confidence, enhancing dignity and empowering their future with better choices. Each year we will support hundreds of girls (and some boys) to finish vocational or senior high school.
After 3 years of study, these students will enter full-time employment or take on further study through government supported tertiary programs.
ONE MORE YEAR of education could make all the difference.
