Photo of the Week - Happy Graduation!

Several years ago we became involved with a program called Mama's Wish, which helps the poorest but most promising rural and nomadic children on the Tibetan plateau. For many of the girls in this region, arranged marriages at 14-15 take the place of a high school education, and a university degree would be an impossibility. Thanks to our wonderful supporters, LWB helps 100 students in this region "dream big" by funding their education. Just this week, the first college graduates from this program received their degrees, and we couldn't be prouder of them! Meet Wan Ma, who just received her college degree in Animal Husbandry from a university in Chengdu. She is hoping to continue her education to receive her Masters Degree, and then return to her village to make a difference in the lives of those who live there. Congratulations Wen Ma! We wish for you a BEAUTIFUL life.


  1. This is wonderful. I am so glad LWB helps these promising young ladies and gentlemen.

    Education is definitley the key to a better life and success!

    I know because I am completing my degree at 45.

  2. Barbara, that is so great that you are finishing! I agree that education is changing these great kids' lives in such a positive way.
