The Two Ten Footwear Foundation , an organization comprised of shoe industry employees whose work with the Asia Foundation helps to provide educational and vocational training for footwear industry employees in China;
The Zhongshan Young Volunteers Association, The Soong Ching Ling Foundation, and the China Welfare Fund for the Handicapped – local organizations with proven, dedicated outreach programs in cities and towns across China.
