AmCham Shanghai’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee invites you to hear from five non-profit organizations running projects both in Shanghai and in China’s rural areas. CSR practitioners can learn about corporate involvement opportunities, including how their employees can volunteer their time and skills, to help start or strengthen existing CSR programs. A successful corporate and non-profit partnership relies on understanding of how a program can benefit an enterprise as well as a charitable organization.

The NGO speakers will introduce a range of programs including: rural development in impoverished communities; environmental protection on China’s beaches; volunteer work with children suffering from cerebral palsy; and invaluable vocational training for teenage orphans. AmCham Shanghai non-members are welcome to attend.

Featured NGOs:

Heifer China: Alleviates hunger, poverty and environmental degradation in rural areas. With seven regional program offices across China, Heifer targets long-term sustainable development of project communities and aims to help individuals achieve sustainable livelihoods.

Marinedream: Creates online educational conservation programs for young children that focus on pollution, climate change and biodiversity. Runs volunteer activities to protect local water environments, including beach cleanups, and is aiming to launch a new Yangtze River program in 2010.

CereCare: CereCare Wellness Centre Shanghai is a residential facility offering a combination of acupressure, physiotherapy and education to young children suffering from cerebral palsy to enable them to live productive and independent lives.

Shanghai Jingguang NGO Service Center: Local service center which provides support for grassroots NPOs in Shanghai.

Shanghai Young Bakers (SYB): Provides Chinese orphans aged 18 to 24 or children from single-parent families with vocational training in a traditional French bakery course. Upon graduation, students receive a Chinese diploma and SYB helps them find employment in China’s bakery industry.
