Our Work in China
Since 1992 we have been committed on improving the quality of education to Chinese children by being involved with teacher training in rural areas. In impoverished communities and schools we've set up child friendly spaces. These spaces provide safe areas for children to play, learn and socialize. They also function as hubs to coordinate government units and other NGOs to offer comprehensive services to vulnerable children.
The standard of living in China has improved over the few decades. However there are widening gaps between rich and poor, and urban and rural areas. Two-thirds of China live in rural areas. Many of them, especially those from minority ethnic groups, live in remote areas and lack access to good quality health services and education.
