Internship in NGO and Social Work Fields


NGOs, charities and social groups in China have their unique position outside the market and the state. Generally smaller scale, connections to citizens, flexibility, capacity to promote private initiative in support of public purposes, and their contributions to building 'social capital',   they have been regarded as strategically important participants in the search for a 'middle way' between the market and the state.

Co-operative projects are concentrated in areas of gender, environment, public health, poverty and education, where the Chinese government requires assistance in tackling a range of social, environmental and rural problems associated with pro-market reform. Chinese NGOs nowadays can be characterised as existing in a transitional stage between complete dependence on the government and some degree of autonomy from it. We can still say there are advantages and strengths of NGOs enabling them to live up to expectations of the public and state.
