AbstractAlthough freedom of association is guaranteed under the Chinese Constitution, independent and autonomous non-governmental organisations are by no means widespread in China. However, rapid market-oriented economic reforms since the late 1970s have created more private space for individuals and organisations. In trying to delimit responsibility for welfare, the Chinese government has promoted private philanthropy and self-help initiatives to help cope with unmet social needs. This article describes the formation of a non-governmental school for mentally handicapped children in Guangzhou. The case illustrates that there is room for the further development of non-governmental organisations in China.
