Nowadays, government officials at all levels, academics and citizens at large have become more concerned about the development of the society. Nowadays, the Chinese government is encouraging and supporting experienced NGOs to pass on their experience and knowledge. Amity takes advantage of the unprecedented opportunity to enhance the specialization of incubating and supporting these NGOs. Since 2009 the Amity Foundation established several NGO Development Centers and helped to set up hundreds of NGOs.
Branches and affiliated organizations who supporting NGOs are in: Kunshan, Nanjing, Nantong, Guangzhou, Shanghai
There is no fixed pattern of incubating social organizations because of their diversity, but fundamentally, social needs are the starting point and ultimate goal of social organizations. The incubation of social organizations, which society need most, is the focus of the Amity NGO Development Centre.
The Centers aim to provide help and support to local NGOs, creating a platform for the communication among social organizations, local government, enterprises and academic communities, and promoting the development of civil society.
Amity's mission is to help and support the fledging NGOs and create a platform for the communication among social organizations, government, private sector and academia. The mission of the centers are to incubate, support, and strengthen Chinese non-government organizations (NGOs) and promote the development of civil society.
Amity wants to improve the development of social organizations to become an important force for the construction of a harmonious society.
