The Badi Foundation is a non-governmental development organization dedicated to releasing the potential of individuals and institutions in China to advance their own communities. We facilitate the establishment of community-based organizations and strengthen their institutional capacity to work with local governments and communities to design and implement education and training programs that release the potential of women and youth living in China’s rural areas. The foundation also operates the School of the Nations, an internationally oriented school in Macau S.A.R. that seeks to foster the intellectual and moral development of its students in an integrated manner, while developing their commitment to service to the broader community.

The Badi Foundation was established in Macau in 1990, where it is registered as a non-profit charitable organization. The foundation established a representative office in Beijing, registered under the State Administration for Industry and Commerce in 1997. In our efforts to contribute to China’s balanced development, we work with Chinese government agencies—such as the State Council Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development, State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs, and provincial and local Poverty Alleviation Bureaus, Education Bureaus and Women’s Federations—as well as Chinese NGOs, including the China Charity Federation and China Association for NGO Cooperation (CANGO).
