Based on the NGO development centers and community governance practice, Amity is devoted to building up platforms for sector advocacy and standards establishment, resource support, and community service to provide comprehensive support from the aspects of organization building, philanthropy talents development, and policy environment building. Through projects, we organize and call for the involvement of community residents and NGOs in community affairs. Apart from meeting all kinds of needs from residents, we helped build communities where every member could participate in community building and community governance through discussions and involvement. Amity incubates and supports hundreds of NGOs and operates and supervises charity funds for various projects.
