As the advocate and practitioner of the Public Welfare Industry in China, One Foundation has always been actively exploring and developing programs to improve the living, school facilities for children who suffer from autism,cerebral palsy or rare diseases , so that they can have a better environment for the growth of their physical and mental health and equal development. You donation will be used to support these children with regular physical trainings and recovery classes.
Autism, a neurological disorder, causes a range of symptoms, from aggressive or repetitive behaviour to digestive problems and an inability to speak, communicate or make eye contact. China is only beginning to grapple with autism. Publicly funded support and treatment is difficult to find.Schools are all based on the traditional Chinese way of strict teaching and do not have special programs for autistic kids. Special programs for autism children are rare in China.
The One Foundation Ocean Heaven Program, a project in aid of autistic children, launched in 2011, plans to donate 1500 million yuan (US$238million) towards helping 10,000 or more autistic children through 110 organizations in China this year. To ensure the project's transparency, the Ocean Heaven Program has published a brochure on the project's guidance and finance and provided unified training on finance management and project implementation.
The program aims to improve special education institutions services and facilities and social and governmental care for this group of disadvantaged children. The One Foundation has also invested in setting up a database that enables beneficiaries of the program to keep track of their situations.
The Government of People’s Republic of China has implemented new regulations for foreign NGOs operating in China.
Starting January 1, 2017, GlobalGiving must receive Government approval before we can disburse funds to organizations registered in
Mainland China. This means that the disbursement of your donation to this project will be slightly delayed while we obtain the appropriate approval.
In the event that GlobalGiving is unable to disburse the funds within 180 days of your donation, we may contact you and ask
if you would like to select another charity for your donation.
