QingCongquan Training Center
Our colleagues in China first established their relationship with the Shanghai QingCongquan Training Center for Children with Special Needs in October 2015 when they volunteered at the organization’s annual outing.
They have maintained regular contact with the Center to provide support to autistic children and their families. As part of this ongoing involvement, in January 2016, the team from American Securities’ Shanghai office helped to set up and decorate the new Nanxiang Branch for the Autistic Training Center. In September 2016, American Securities volunteers spent half a day cleaning and disinfecting the classroom and teaching instruments to ready it for the children. American Securities also donated to the Qingcongquan tuition sponsorship program to help cover part of the tuition fee for families who cannot afford the full training costs.
Shanghai QingCongquan Training Center for Children with Special Needs was founded in 2004. It is a non-profit, private organization that provides professional rehabilitation training and coaching to the children with autism and their families. Their programs offer professional early-stage rehabilitation training and long-term psychological support to families. They also organize a variety of social welfare and advocacy activities to help autistic children better integrate into society.
Our Giving Back report debuted in 2011 as a testament to how those of us at American Securities, and our portfolio companies, live our value of Giving Back.
