Bethel China

Bethel empowers the visually impaired Chinese orphan community by providing foster care, education, therapy, and livelihood opportunities to VI orphans and by training everyone with the same vision. Bethel provides a safe and stimulating environment in which VI orphans of all ages and abilities can live, learn, and laugh in the process of becoming independent and participating members of society. In addition, Bethel aims to strengthen existing Chinese institutions by capacity building caregivers using workshops, e-learning, consultancy and training materials that focus on raising the quality of care for VI orphans.
