Leading by example
Our team at Amway China works hard to help people live better lives.
They break records for participants in New Year’s Day health runs. They help educate thousands of migrant children. They even change classroom light bulbs.
By the end of 2011, Amway China organized 68,000 volunteers who contributed more than 1.54 million hours to make a positive impact on the lives of 1.2 million children since 1995.
Now our Amway Charity Foundation in China has joined forces with the China Volunteers Association to form the China Volunteers Foundation.
Why? While charitable organizations are booming in China, they must overcome common challenges. “Acting as volunteers is really a fresh thing here,” Zhou Tienong, chairman of the China Volunteers Association, told the China Daily.
That’s why an initial donation of 10 million yuan (USD$1.6 million) from Amway Charity Foundation can help – by funding training, research and best practices that set high standards for volunteer efforts across China.
Together, we can lead the way to an even better future.
