To comply with the regulation on children welfare, Sowers Action will have to make some signification modifications to the agreements with various local Government Welfare Bureaus and cease to be the management or supervising party of the homes in Diqing Autonomous Region as of Aug 31, 2021, and in Shuifu and Yongshan as of Sep 30, 2021.
From an administrative perspective, this will require a change in legal representative, directors, and articles and bylaws in the existing Non-Government organizations. Also, employment contracts will be terminated with severance in accordance with local Labor laws, and assets will be liquated and transferred to the respective homes. Thereafter, local government will assemble a new management team and assume full responsibilities in the running of these Homes.
At the moment, a new arrangement to support the Homes in a non-management role with financial oversights through periodic financial and working reporting is confirmed for the Diqing Home and is still under discussions for the Shuifu and Yongshan homes.
It is an honor for Sowers Action to have the opportunity to collaborate with local Government Welfare Bureaus to providing care for children in needs. We hope to announce new partnership agreements shortly, and meanwhile, Sowers Action sincerely invite our donors to continue your support to the Children Homes, to create a better environment for our children to grow up in.
