The Kunming Project launched in July 2014. This project partners with the global OneSky network to fund a model Half the Sky Children’s Centre, Loving Families Program (formerly Family Village), and a training facility in Kunming, Yunnan Province.
In June 2014, the Chief Development Officer of Half the Sky Australia, Deanne Bevan, and other supporters, visited Yunnan Province to help prepare for the launch of the Model Centre and Training Facility in Kunming.
“It was inspiring to meet the Director, administrators, staff and children at the Kunming social welfare institution who are so enthusiastic about the new centre and made substantial preparations for its launch. It promises to be a very productive partnership. At Half the Sky Australia, we are particularly excited because we have seen the impact Half the Sky’s nurturing programmes have had on the children in Hunan—we can’t wait to see the same developmental leaps for children at Kunming and ultimately, throughout Yunnan Province".
Two years later in June 2016, Half the Sky Australia’s Chief Development Officer, Lauren O’Hara, and Communications Director, Veronica Reich, also visited the Kunming Welfare Institution and the Changsha Children’s Centre. Read more here.
