A Bridge for Children International
Founded in 2007, A Bridge for Children International (ABC) is a U.S. registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in Beijing, China, dedicated to serving orphans and migrant children — two of the most vulnerable and at-risk populations in China. Built on the conviction that every child deserves a family and an education, ABC serves underprivileged children in three programmatic areas: CONNECT (CSR and Volunteerism), DREAM (Education and Life Skills) and TALENT (Migrant Children Sports, Arts, Music, and teacher training).
EMpower’s third grant to ABC supports their CAI program, which incorporates Basketball and Football (soccer), music and arts programs in migrant schools in Beijing. The Cai program includes workshops led by staff and volunteers who impart life skills, leadership and team building to students. The program also includes a component working to train older orphaned youth to serve as mentors.
