Qi Chuang Social Work Development Organisation

Context: Migrant youth living in Guangzhou, China’s third largest city, often lack the workplace and life skills sufficient to make a successful transition to independent adulthood.

Organization: Qi Chuang Social Work Development Association, founded in 2008 as a collaborative effort by professors of social work from the University of Hong Kong and Sun Yat-sen University, provides critical social work services to families and young people in need.  Qi Chuang is the first professional Social Work Services Organization to provide services to civil society, funded by local and provincial government.

Current Grant: EMpower’s 5th grant will enable Qi chuang to provide life-skills programming to 550 migrant youth while also training 100 social workers and migrant teachers in its migrant youth life-skills program over the next 2 years.
