Brits Abroad Christmas Lunch

Community Outreach

The jewel in Brits Abroad's crown is its Community Outreach programme.

Every jiao Brits Abroad raises from events goes to various worthwhile organisations in China. The current projects are described below.

Many of the organisations urgently need help from expats just like you. If you can spare any time and would like to give back to the country that is hosting you, please do contact them and offer your help

What does this charity do?

This is a pre and post operative residential home for orphaned babies undergoing surgery at Shanghai H C M C. Many of these babies have been given up by their parents as they require surgery in order for them to live normal lives. For instance, this may mean repairing a hole in a child’s heart or a hare lip, or correcting gastric or skeletal malformations. Once they have surgery they can live full lives again.

What extra can you do to help them?

stepping stones 

What does this charity do?

Stepping Stones is a Hong Kong registered charity which works with expatriate and local volunteers to teach English in migrant schools and community centres in Shanghai and now in Anhui. They have taught 2,800 students in a total of 11 schools, focusing on students in grades 4 and 5. By learning English, these children improve their future chances of getting better educational opportunities and better paid employment.

What are they doing with the 2016 donation from Brits Abroad?

Gansu Project: the Brits Abroad donation of 15,840 RMB will cover the costs of sending 2 Stepping Stones volunteer teachers to Gansu province to teach English to female university students for two weeks in summer 2016. Stepping Stones will carry this out in partnership with Educating Girls in Rural China which already supports many women in getting a high school and university education in rural China. 

What will this donation achieve?

Education Girls in Rural China supports the university education of young women in rural China. It has found these women do not succeed as well as their urban counterparts, mainly due to their poor level of English.  This Stepping Stones project will highlight the importance and value of learning English which, in turn, will improve the students’ work and life opportunities within China.

You can volunteer as a teacher if you can speak English well and are committed to the Stepping Stones mission of helping children in migrant schools improve their English
