fix (4 of 7)

Since 2006, Children of Shambala Qinghai (CoS Qinghai) has implemented 115 small-scale development projects in western China. In 2010 CoS Qinghai began implementing a long-term poverty alleviation program called Orphanage Without Walls (OWW).

At the end of 2012, Shambala Foundation (SF) took over managing the daily operations and program implementation of CoS Qinghai. Shambala Foundation’s founders include Jan Terje Voilaas and Wang Suwen. Shambala Foundation was registered as a charitable organization on January 11th, 2013 in Hong Kong.

Shambala Foundation is proud to work within a network of excellent local community based organizations to collaborate on our most important project, Orphanages Without Walls (OWW). We believe creative solutions come from cooperation. Together we are stronger and better able to meet the needs of our beneficiaries.

Our partners in implementing Orphanage Without Walls include:

Children of Madaifu

Children of Shambala

Pentok Institute

Lotus Charity Association

Shambala Foundation is grateful to Children of Shambala, Misereor, and our generous private donors from around the world for supporting our work.
