On October 10, 2013 a team will be leaving for Gansu, China. Led by Tim Gampp, this group will focus on direct interaction with the children in the orphanage as well as with orphanage staff. Playing with children, holding them, and providing them with care are some of the most important ways to help with their development and ability to form attachment. We are looking for additional team members and if you are in the medical or social work fields, we’d love to have you join us as well as there is always a need for team members with these backgrounds.
America World has orphanage partners throughout China, giving teams the opportunity to work directly with many children. ACT regularly hosts trips to China through these strong connections with groups that have the same desire to help children. These trips bring immense fulfillment and joy to those who have the opportunity to experience them!
Gansu is located in the middle part of the Silk Road and is a demographically diverse province. It is home to an abundance of ethnic groups and has played a significant role in both Chinese and world history. The Huang He River, Great Wall and Silk Road all come through this region and it is know as the “golden section” of the Silk Road. Over the past 2,000 years it saw such great envoys as those of Marco Polo, Zhang Qian, and Xuan Zang. Being a hotbed of trade and travel for many years it inherited a vast array of cultures encompassing Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Confucianism and Taoism. You don’t want to miss such a rich opportunity to explore this ancient and magnificent province.
