Regionalization

Recent Changes in our Program

In the 20 years we’ve been caring for Jiangxi orphans, the situation in the orphanages has changed a lot. Most recently, there has been a move by the Jiangxi provincial government towards regionalization. Naturally, as things in China change, our program does, too.

 

Recent regionalization of special-needs orphans has meant many of our children have moved to larger institutions where they can get more professional rehabiliation and special education services. 

 

To keep you in the loop, we've prepared three special reports.

If you're interested in more information about the regionalization process and our 2019 service trips -- and especially if you're interested in participating in future service trips -- please use the "send us an email at bottom left" to request them. We're happy to share.

 

Here's the result of regionalization in terms of which orphanages' children have moved where.

These orphanages have transferred children to regional centers, so we will switch our support to follow them.

Fengcheng  

All the children have been transferred to the Yichun SWI.

Ganzhou

Currently the children are at the Ganzhou Social Welfare Institute (SWI).  It’s likely that the children at the SWI will transfer to the Children’s Welfare Institute. Hopefully, our children in foster care can remain in their foster homes.

Gao’an

The children living at the institute have been transferred to the Yichun SWI.  We’re hoping our foster children can stay in their current homes, including those attending middle school and high school.

Guangchang  All the children in this orphanage will transfer to the Fuzhou SWI by Chinese New Year 2020.

Hengfeng

Children in foster care have remained in their foster homes, while the other children have transferred to the Shangrao CWI.

Le'an All the children in this orphanage will transfer to the Fuzhou SWI by Chinese New Year 2020.
Nancheng All the children in this orphanage will transfer to the Fuzhou SWI by Chinese New Year 2020.
Nanfeng All the children in this orphanage will transfer to the Fuzhou SWI by Chinese New Year 2020.

Shanggao

Children in foster care will remain in their current foster homes. All other children (except two at a rehab institute in Beijing) have been transferred to the Yichun SWI.

Wanzai

Children in foster care will remain in their current foster homes. All other children (except two at a rehab institute in Shanghai) have been transferred to the Yichun SWI.

Yihuang

The children at the special education boarding school will continue in that school; the others will transfer to the Fuzhou SWI.
