Q: How do get a volunteer position at a Chinese orphanage?

I've met a few people who have volunteered at orphanages but never see volunteer opportunities like this advertised anywhere. What's the best way of finding and getting such positions?

Sometimes students from this college go to volunteer for a few hours. When I heard about it, I went with them. They played some games with the children, and some of the children put on a dance performance. We brought lots of snacks for them, and if they won a game they got a prize. All of them had some kind of disability, which is why the parents abandoned them, I would think. One of the cutest little girls was there, all that was wrong with her was that she couldn't move her legs. I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but because she lives in China, there are very few ramps and many buildings don't have elevators. It's unfortunate that these children don't have a home, but at least we could give them a few hours of fun.

You have not met anyone who has volunteered at any orphanage.

Oh no....how badly do you want to break your heart? The things you'll see in a Chinese orphanage will not please you. I think you're braver than me for wanting to do that.

A:Most Chinese don't want to leave as opposed to the perception that they do. Like Ted, Tom et al said, they just want a better life. However, all of them want better lives fast, like yesterday. So we see them as conniving brats who rush to be first in line for anything, even for a sundae at Mackers. There are many who can afford to leave. They spend hundred of thousands sending their kids to the US and UK universities. The kids in the university I teach in have BMWs, Mercs, Maseratis etc picking them up at the gates, mostly the mothers send and fetch. These people are dripping cash but they don't talk about migrating, just going overseas for holidays. Here, RMB10 million means they are somebody in their own town but when the go to the US or EU, it's less than US2 million. Unless they have something to run away from I don't think the majority would leave. -- louischuahm
