MCF is a non-profit organisation registered in the UK. Our aims are to enrich the lives of disadvantaged children in China through various forms of voluntary work, sponsorship, vocational activities and events. Our volunteers undertake support placements at under-resourced schools in Beijing, but the focus isn't only on teaching – it's about sharing experiences, giving time, learning new skills and experiencing life in one of the oldest, most fascinating and fast-changing countries on earth. This is what makes MCF unique.
