The Amity Foundation (AF)

The Amity Foundation, an independent Chinese voluntary organization, was created in 1985 on the initiative of Chinese Christians to promote education, social services, health, and rural development from China's coastal provinces in the east to the minority areas of the west.

Abiding by the principle of mutual respect in faith, Amity builds friendship with people at home and abroad. Through the promotion of holistic development and public welfare, Amity serves society, benefits the people, and strives to promote world peace.

In this way, Amity:

* Contributes to China's social development and openness to the outside world.

* Makes Christian involvement and participation in meeting the needs of society more widely known to the Chinese people.

* Serves as a channel for people-to-people contact and the ecumenical sharing of resources.
