Every year we watch as the children of Blue Dragon grow. Many of the girls and boys we met and worked with back when we were starting in 2003 are now parents themselves, some with their own businesses and some even living abroad. In 2014-2015, 76 of the Blue Dragon kids studied at university and college. Our organisation, too, grows year by year.
