About Us

Overview
HandsOn China's primary objective is to identity the needs of local NGOs and organize flexible volunteer programs for busy professionals.

In order to connect volunteers with local community-based organizations, HandsOn China engages in three main activities:

  • Coordinate volunteer opportunities for active professionals, according to their availability and personal interests.
  • Support local community organizations with direct donations, fundraising planning and execution, community project design and implementation.
  • Design and manage a variety of volunteer programs for private sector partners in Shanghai.

History
HandsOn China was founded in 2004 by a group of young foreign professionals with previous experience in the HandsOn / Cares worldwide network. They began by establishing an affiliate organization in Shanghai, China.

Mission
HandsOn China's mission is to create a balance between the needs of China's charities and the availability of those looking to become involved in community activities.

Strategy
HandsOn China strives to establish and develop long-term sustainable relationships with charities in China. Servicing the long-term needs of our partners, we organize short-term projects that are sensitive to the schedules and interests of volunteers. Together, HandsOn and its partner organizations create successful and well-staffed projects by allowing HandsOn China to manage volunteers while partner organizations manage the projects.
