Description

About:


The China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation (CFPA) (Chinese: 中国扶贫基金会) is a nongovernmental charitable organization based in Beijing, registered at the Ministry of Civil Affairs, PRC, in 1989 and professionally supervised by the State Council Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development. In 2016, CFPA raised poverty alleviation funds and materials totaling RMB 456 million (est. 67 million USD) to deliver aid and assistance in over 29 million individual cases for impoverished persons and disaster victims. By the end of 2016, CFPA had accumulatively raised poverty alleviation funds and material of RMB 24.867 billion (est. USD 3.7 billion). The beneficiaries in the impoverished condition and the disaster areas reached 29,087,200 person-time.


CFPA’s first international project was realized in the wake of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami when the organization raised funds for affected disaster victims. Since then CFPA has expanded overseas to help those in need across the world, and is actively campaigning for more Chinese CSOs to launch humanitarian projects abroad while advocating for favorable government policies facilitating overseas operations. As of 2016, CFPA has undertaken work in 10 countries outside China and has long term projects in 4 countries; Myanmar, Nepal, Ethiopia and Sudan, with registered offices in Nepal and Myanmar. In 2007 and 2013, it was rated as the national AAAAA-grade foundation by the Ministry of Civil Affairs. In September, 2016, CFPA was accredited as one of the first charitable organizations with public fund-raising qualification by the Ministry of Civil Affairs.
