Bringing Aid to Children in China's Orphanages








Special Education Teachers in the Orphanages 


We have special education teachers in some of the orphanages.  Each has ten orphans in her classroom.  We are looking for people to sponsor (or help to sponsor) the children.  Sponsors will get a report twice a year, with a photo, for their sponsored child.  These child sponsorships pay the salary for the teachers.  We need $900 per child per year but donations of any amount, one time or recurring, will help.  You don't need to be the only sponsor for a child.  We recently added a teacher at the Ganzhou CWI  so are in great need of sponsors there.  And we've just been asked to add a teacher at the Yichun SWI which we can do if there is interest in helping.  (Children from the Shanggao, Yifeng, Tonggu, Fenxin, Wanzai, Gao'an, Fengcheng, and Zhangshu orphanages are now also cared for at the Yichun SWI).   Email from more information.



   Ji'an Special Education Teachers


We have three Hugging Grannies at the Ji'an SWI that are working as Special Education Teachers. They volunteer for a full day and get a higher stipend than our other Grannies.  



Hugging Grannies


These women provide extra love and attention to the children and also help with rehab exercises and special education.  They are volunteers, but do receive a monthly stipend of $105 per month (but many have more than one sponsor, so any amount can help).  We've just been asked to add four Grannies at the Shangrao CWI so this more sponsors are needed here!  We have Hugging Grannies at these orphanages:










The Fuzhou SWI now also cares for children from Yihuang, Nanfeng, Nancheng, Le'an and Guangchang. And the Hengfeng children are now at the Shangrao CWI.  




We provide

  • Foster care (now mostly in small group homes with 4-5 children in each)
  • Hugging Grannies
  • School tuitions
  • Special education teachers
  • Physical therapists
  • Service trips with U.S. professionals providing training to Chinese staff (on hold due to Covid)

...and meet various other needs for children in several orphanages in the Jiangxi province in China.


We publish reports from each orphanage twice a year. These reports go to those who have indicated their interest in that particular location. If you'd like to do that, just email us under "Sign up for our newsletters!" at the left.

As you can see, Jiangxi is in the southeast of China. **

Our current focus is on special education. Due to the recent regionalization of orphanages (read more here), the institutions have increased populations of children with severe disabilities, and professional special educators have become even more essential.


Where in the past we’ve encouraged donors to sponsor a child in foster care, now we’re inviting you to sponsor a child who needs special education. Just as in the past, you’ll receive two reports a year on that child’s progress, while your donation goes to pay the professionally-trained teacher’s salary.


To sponsor a child, or get more information and photos, please email Peggy. To learn more about our special education efforts, click here.
