Half the Sky Foundation

Before Half the Sky, many children in China who lost their families may have been fed and sheltered, but not loved. Deprived of loving attention, they could not thrive or grow up in an institutionalised environment. Half the Sky is dedicated to enriching the lives of orphaned children through home nurturing programmes and caregiver training.

Since 2008, Deutsche Bank has been supporting the non-profit in its various programmes. Through Born to Be, we will be funding the Infant Nurture, Little Sisters Preschools and Youth Services Programmes in Tianjin and the Infant Nurture Programme in Chongqing.

Each of these programmes offers education and medical care to targeted age groups. Deutsche Bank’s support will cover the personnel costs of preschool teachers, nannies and youth mentors, as well as education materials.

INCLUDED

We all need help to realise our potential. Large urban cities in China like Beijing and Shanghai receive a huge influx of migrant labour. While parents provide service labour, their children are often left with minimal supervision after school.

Deutsche Bank supports INCLUDED, a non-government organisation which provides early childhood development and after-school educational and enrichment programmes for migrant children, as well as coaching and support.

Currently, Deutsche Bank is funding the building of one migrant centre in Shanghai and the operations of another in Beijing. For more information, please email db.asiafoundation@db.com.

Operation Smile

Every child deserves to smile. Operation Smile China Medical Mission, Ltd. is part of a global alliance of Operation Smile foundations and chapters dedicated to providing free treatment to children suffering from cleft lips and cleft palates. The organisation also works on building public and private partnerships that advocate sustainable healthcare systems for children and families in China.

Deutsche Bank has been partnering with Operation Smile on its medical missions in China. Each year since 2012, a group of regional Deutsche Bank volunteers travels to a city in China to change the lives of more than 100 children, assisting as non-medical volunteers.  

In April 2014, Deutsche Bank will be sending another group of volunteers to Zhengzhou, Henan Province, on an Operation Smile medical mission. For more information, please email db.asiafoundation@db.com.

Right to Play

Every child has the potential to lead. Yet in China, many migrant youths, while possessing technical skills, lack leadership skills, financial literacy and emotional management, and they struggle to find gainful employment in the cities.

Working with Right to Play, a non-profit operating in China which provides holistic development to disadvantaged children, Deutsche Bank will fund leadership training for 500 migrant youths.

Through the leadership programme, these youths will be trained in life skills to prepare them for employability.

Teach for China 

Teach for China recruits outstanding graduates from top universities in China and America to serve as full-time teachers, called Fellows, for two years in schools serving low-income families in China, in order to combat educational inequality in the country.  The impact of Teach for China’s work is tangible: 70% of Fellow classes increased their class averages from the start of the academic term to the end of Fall semester in 2013. 

As part of Born to Be, Deutsche Bank currently supports 12 Chinese graduates to teach full-time in schools in Guangdong where there is a need for excellent teachers. Deutsche Bank volunteers also visit the schools to provide support to both the students and the Fellows.
