Maternal Love for Orphaned Children
Science-based Loving Care and Companionship
Operated by Chunhui Children in state-run welfare institutions, Chunhui Mama is a child care and education program designed for orphaned children aged 0-18. This comprehensive program adheres to the concept of Chunhui Children’s inclusive education, takes into account the developmental characteristics of children of different ages, integrates the content of rehabilitation and special education and designs individualized teaching content and methods, thus creating educational opportunities suitable for each child and promoting their comprehensive development. The program trains thousands of front-line Chunhui Mamas to provide responsive care for orphaned children, develop secure attachments with them and pay consistent attention to their needs. In doing so, the children can thrive in family-like love and care. Chunhui Mama is not only a name for one of our programs but also the title for the thousands of women working in our programs in welfare institutions. They serve two roles, as the children’s “mamas,” and as their teachers. There are six sub-programs in Chunhui Mama, including Chunhui Infant Nurture, Chunhui Preschool, Chunhui Youth, Chunhui Sports, Chunhui Family and Chunhui Training.
WHO WE SERVE
The 2016 Social Service Development Communique indicates that by the end of 2016, orphaned children in China totaled 460,000, of which 88,000 spent their days under centralized care. “Chunhui Mama” is a program model designed for orphaned children in China’s state-run child welfare institutions. We aim to, with our consistent efforts and support from multiple stakeholders, ultimately reach all of these most vulnerable children.
