Amity established its Amity Beijing Office in 2019. The office is dedicated to expanding and strengthening Amity’s partnerships in Beijing, broadening Amity’s information channels, enhancing Amity’s sector advocacy, and raising brand awareness and recognition for Amity.
Staff of the office advocated for Chinese social forces to engage more in humanitarian crises such as international emergency aid. The office aims to improve social organizations’ capabilities and to carry out international exchanges and cooperation in the course of “going global”. It advocates building a service network for a community under the aspect of a shared future for mankind. Therefore, the China Association for NGO Cooperation, Amity Foundation, Beijing Normal University Risk Governance Innovation Center, and Peaceland Foundation jointly organized the “China Participation in International Humanitarian Aid Exchange Workshop” in Beijing and initiated the “China Civil Network for International Humanitarian Assistance”. Amity participated in the “Social Organizations in South-South Cooperation Workshop” and the “International Capacity Building” to share Amity’s “Going Global” projects and experiences. Amity also participated in the 4th “Migrant Population Health and Development Forum” and spoke on the forum to share Amity’s “Sprouts on Earth” and other mothers and children care projects.
