About us: Founded in 2007, A Bridge for Children International (ABC) is a U.S. registered non-profit organization headquartered in Beijing, China, dedicated to serving orphans and migrant children — two of the most vulnerable and at-risk populations in China. Built on the conviction that every child deserves a family and an education, ABC serves underprivileged children in three programmatic areas: CONNECT(牵手) (Community CSR and Volunteerism), DREAM (梦想) (Orphans Foster Home, Education and Life Skills) and TALENT (才) (Migrant Children Sports, Arts, Music, and Teacher Training). At ABC, we CONNECT the TALENT with the DREAM.
ABC programs construct "a bridge for children" to support what is typically a precarious crossing from society's margins into the greater community. This transition is difficult for these populations characterized by limited education, life skills, and job training.
