Special Need Children

Over 100 children are being looked after by the project. The children are mostly autistic or suffer from some other form of disabilities. They require special attention and the local staffs are adequately trained to provide them. However, the staffs are frequently overstretched and not enough attention can be provided to each individual children. Through help from volunteers, each child can be well looked after, taught and trained to develop.

How Does This Project Make a Difference?

Before the project started, facility to care for the disabled children didn’t exist. Over 100 children are now developing well in the center and the number is set to rise. With volunteers, more children can be taken in and those already there can progress well. The children need as much attention as they can get, hence volunteers’ participation is crucial.

Highlights of the Program

It can be tricky working with children suffering from disabilities. Volunteers will be helped and guided until they are confident of working under their own. Volunteers, however, must enjoy this kind of work and remain open minded during the project. You will work the children, and teach them to sing as well as organize normal games and lessons.


Xi’an contains many attractions and the city is often full of tourist. There are many places to dine. The center of the city contains drum and bell tower, as well as city wall. The Grand Mosque is also another attraction, while just outside the city limits is located the magnificent Army of Terracotta Warrior museum. If you want to go away for a whole day, you can go to panda research center in Qingling Mountains or visit the sheer beauty of Huashan National Park.
