Sunvillage is dedicated to the children of Chinese convicts and fights for their survival and development.
Sunvillage is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation based in Beijing, China. In China, the children of convicts do not qualify for social welfare from the government. They get left behind by their parents without any money or education and worst of all, without any parental love. At the same time they can receive unfavourable treatment in society due to their family background. On their own, the children would be left without shelter: Some would work as shepherds, some would beg for money and food, and many would be abandoned and possibly abused by public and or even their relatives. Given this situation, its not surprising that some children may turn to crime, just as their parents have done. At Sunvillage, they accommodate these children before its too late and bring them into a stable and loving family.
Sunvillage’s ultimate goal is to raise its kids into independent, responsible adults. The organisation wants them to be able to start their own family, pursue a career and avoid the mistakes their parents made. The organisation strongly believe these children deserve the chance to make something out of themselves and out of their life.
This is achieved by providing the children with:
- School education and teachers to help them with their homework
- Healthy, nutritious food (Homegrown on our own fields)
- General parenting (Teaching them what’s right, what’s wrong?)
- Similiar social interactions like they would not normally have, such as making friends, playing and doing sports
More than everything, Sunvillage try to give the children the feeling of being loved. However, it can never be enough to replace their parents. That’s why they try to reunite the children with their parents in prison as often as possible, either by visiting or by calling via phone.
