Strengthening Institutions (China)

'Strengthening institutions for the care and protection of at risk children and children of convicts’ is a three year program which started on the 1st of December 2012. The program builds upon the successful and close cooperation with Chinese partners in the years prior and has four core objectives:

1. Assist with the development of an inspection unit for child protection in China under the Ministry of Civil Affairs.

2. Assist with the development of standard operating procedures to ensure childcare and protection are provided when a parent goes to prison.

3. Assist with the creation and implementation of training materials and plans for relevant childcare and protection authorities which can also be used in the National Training Center.

4. Setting-up a model center for child care and protection which can function as an example for other centers in China. Read more in our special section on the Fuyiwan House.

This program focuses on children of convicts but has a national level impact in China on childcare and protection.
