Founded in 2008, Haihui is a non-profit organization dedicated to poverty alleviation and the sustainable development of rural communities. We have two main centers: The Sichuan Haihui Poverty Alleviation Service Center and The Shanghai Haihui Community Livelihood Development Center.
For years, we have partnered with governments, enterprises, charity organizations, schools and other entities to implement Haihui’s poverty alleviation projects. Our services reach across north and central China, the Sichuan-Chongqing and Yunnan-Guizhou regions, Xinjiang, and beyond.
Haihui has imported Heifer International’s advanced sustainable development concept to China, helping local families in need by providing livestock and training. Recipient families pledge to continue “Passing on the Gift®” by sharing their own livestock’s offspring—or gift money—as well as the skills and knowledge they have acquired to other families in need, in the end, benefiting the entire community.
From 2008 through December 31, 2017, Haihui has worked with 120 project partners to implement 179 projects—including all completed projects and projects currently underway—in 156 counties/cities across 16 provinces/municipalities.
Through these projects, Haihui has helped 71,213 families in need and fostered the donation of 1,270,845 farm animals. Of this, Haihui has directly supported 34,112 families and provided 826,198 animals, as well as 100,000 mushroom logs. Beyond our direct efforts, a total of 444,647 gift animals have been delivered, and 37,101 families supported. We offer a variety of trainings and have conducted 22,476 trainings since our launch; more than 969,542 people have attended our trainings, with women representing 37.50% of that group.
Haihui Advisory Committee （HAC）
Since its founding, Haihui has received support from many enterprises and individuals. Over this time, a group of influential and enthusiastic entrepreneurs, experts and donor representatives, who believe deeply in Haihui’s poverty-ending project model, have joined together to establish the Haihui Advisory Committee. This committee supports Haihui on branding, resource mobilization and strategic planning in order to help more people get involved and make a difference.
