Challenge

In China, orphans are faced with: 1) Insufficient welfare support; 2) Unmet physical and emotional needs; 3) Unaffordable education and medical expenses. These factors often force orphans to find work in low-income, labor-intensive jobs, to live on the streets, or remain dependent on the welfare system. Ultimately, orphans lose out on education opportunities and find themselves trapped in a vicious cycle. They spend their entire lives struggling to meet their most basic needs.

Solution

We provide Chinese teenage orphans with hope through life and vocational skills training. Orphans are also provided housing in intimate family settings where they develop positive self identities and values.

Long-Term Impact

Students leave the program with increased confidence, self-awareness, and tangible life and vocational skills that will prepare them to become self-sufficient and contributing members of society.
