Giving Children a Chance to Reach Their Potential
We at the CTC have developed a very strong and transparent “Application for Funding” form that any charity in Zhuhai may use to approach us and request funding. Every application is reviewed by our volunteers and board members and only the most beneficial and transparent are accepted, thanks to this form we have been able to help more children than ever before.
Primarily we do this by working with 3 amazing local, transparent, and worthy charitable causes.
LJL (Lanjing Ling) 蓝精灵
Lanjing Ling (LJL) is a charity dedicated to helping children with low functioning autism learn and develop skills in a safe and creative environment. They teach the children through compassion, creativity and communication.

Because we fund not only the lecture fee but also the instruments, each child participating in this course will have their own ocarina so they can practice at anytime, anywhere.
ZAS (Zhuhai Autism Society) 珠海市自闭症协会
The Zhuhai Autism Society is a non-profit organization set up by the parents of autistic children under the auspices of the Zhuhai Civil Affairs Bureau. They work by providing specialised class rooms on part time or full time basis; to offer the appropriate education and help the children and young adults gain the skills they will need to live fulfilling lives on a personal but also professional level.
Here are some examples of the approved projects at ZAS funded by The CTC:

CPAZ (Charity Promotion Association of Zhuhai) 珠海市爱心促进会
CPAZ is a registered CSO (Civil Society Organization) in China and works to promote social activism and public welfare through a range of projects, which aim to provide compassionate assistance to vulnerable sectors of society.
This includes supporting morally and financially destitute, disadvantaged people and particularly young students living as orphans or with single parents.
There is one approved project we run through CPAZ, our first ever official project and one we’ve funded since 2012
Supporting children from low-income families, providing school fees (transportation and lunch fee) for students in Zhuhai. Each child sponsored also receives a ‘love bag’, consisting of school essentials such as books and stationery to facilitate learning.
There are still many more projects in the pipeline that the CTC team are working hard to make sure meet our strict requirements and confirm to our values of integrity, traceability & sustainability.
We are actively seeking out new, local, transparent charities to work with and to support. If your charity or good cause would like to receive funding from CTC please contact us now by sending some basic information by email and to request our Application for Funding document. firstname.lastname@example.org
