Who We Are
The Gap Foundation is a Hong Kong-based registered charity (#716161).
We were established in May 2000 to fund and manage projects that improve and nurture the lives of children and youth living in conditions of need, hardship and distress.
It is our desire to "stand in the gap" for disadvantaged children and youth in Asia and the rest of the world - the gap in basic provisions, opportunities and privileges that prevent children and youth from living full lives.

The Gap Foundation manages a home for orphaned and abandoned children in Liaoning Province, China. Click here to learn more about our GAP Fengcheng Children's Home and to find out where it is located.
The work that The Gap Foundation manages and supports is:
1) Child-focused - meaning it places the importance on what is best for the child and involves the child in the decision-making process.
2) Based on the rights of the child as given in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC). In brief, the CRC recognises a child's rights to survival, protection, development and participation. (Click here learn more about the UN CRC).

3) Family-oriented - meaning that we try to create a family-environment for the children living in our home where, as much as possible, they are able to have a normal life.

4) Independent-living - In order to eventually be able to integrate into society, we believe strongly in helping the children to live independent lives.
