Welcome to the Migrant Children’s Foundation
The MCF is a non-profit organisation that aims to enrich the lives of disadvantaged children in China through volunteering. Our volunteers undertake one month support placements at under-resourced schools in Beijing, but the focus isn't only on teaching – it's about sharing experiences, giving time, learning new skills and experiencing life in one of the oldest, most fascinating and fastest-changing countries on earth. This is what makes MCF unique.

The Volunteer Program offers volunteers from overseas the chance to undertake an unforgettable one-month teaching placement at one of our partner schools in Beijing.
If you have the desire and drive to help others, combined with the strength of character to adapt to a new and challenging environment, apply to The Volunteer Program today.
Twice a week, we send Beijing Buddies volunteers to visit our partner schools, where they devote their time and attention to the children in a wholly creative environment. All you need is enthusiasm and you’re ready to go!
Beijing Buddies is a drop-in volunteering project, which means you can sign up for a day, a month or a year. If you’re already in Beijing or you’re planning a visit, give something back to the city you’re living in by becoming a Buddy.
Through all of our activities, our goals are:
- To give migrant children the opportunity to experience people and ideas they wouldn't necessarily find in their day-to-day environment
- To give support and resources to the hard-working staff of under-resourced local schools
- To offer our volunteers the opportunity to be immersed into a unique foreign culture and to experience an incredibly rewarding working environment
- To support our volunteers every step of the way
