JA Takes Center Stage in China

JA China was honored as one of a handful of nonprofit organizations officially recognized as foreign NGOs under China’s new NGO law, under the auspices of the CPAFFC, a people’s national organization that has oversight of JA China’s activities. Founded in 1993, JA China is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2018.
