Our Work

ND North

The Chinese province of Inner Mongolia is well-known for its culture, history and natural features, including mountains, deserts and the high plains grasslands. Though its border is only 300 kilometers from the capital in Beijing, many cities and villages within the province do not enjoy the higher standard of living and quality medical care that exist in Beijing.

New Day Foster Home’s work in Inner Mongolia began more than a decade ago with the first children from the capital city of Hohhot, who came to New Day in Beijing for live-saving surgeries and life-changing therapy. New Day expanded that outreach over the years, caring for many children from the Inner Mongolian cities of Hohhot, Baotou, Wulanchabu, and others at the Beijing New Day center.

In 2006, New Day began additional programs to help children living in the Hohhot orphanage through the formula project and a staff therapist working within the orphanage. In 2013, New Day launched the New Day North branch, in order to provide even greater support for orphans in Inner Mongolia.


Vision

The Vision of New Day North is to transform the lives of children with special needs, especially those who are orphans. Our approach to accomplishing that vision involves three key roles:

  • Care-givers are the people interacting with the children all the time and their impact in the children’s lives is the greatest. We believe that, more than any other person in the child’s life, the nanny who cares for the child can make the biggest impact. For that reason, we focus on using long-term hands-on training to develop nannies who are excellent at taking care of children with long-term needs.
  • Experts in the areas of medicine, therapy, nursing and special education are able to give information and techniques to nannies that is specific to the kinds of children they care for. New Day North depends on a strong team of experts, both Chinese and foreign, from the local area as well as visitors who periodically visit to provide training.
  • Coaches are a vital part of the New Day North team and strategy. These coaches are specifically trained not only in how to care for children with special needs, but in how to coach care-givers on an ongoing basis. These coaches provide a key link between the knowledge of the experts and the care-givers, because the coaches help the care-givers consistently and accurately implement the guidance and training provided by the experts in each subject area.

Projects

In-Orphanage Care Centers

Since May 2014, New Day North has operated the Home of Hope center in a major government orphanage in Inner Mongolia. The goals of this center are to provide a significantly lower child-to-staff ratio, provide specialized training and support to a dedicated group of caregivers, and provide a living example to influence the orphanage staff. The project currently employs 14 staff providing full-time care for 10-14 orphans, most of whom have long-term special medical needs such as cerebral palsy and Down syndrome.

In 2018, New Day North began a second in-orphanage project in the government orphanage of one of the major cities of the province. In it’s early stages, this project currently employs three nannies working with a small number of children, most of whom have cerebral palsy.

Special Education and Training

Two key programs begun in government orphanages in 2017 provide training and support in two of our government orphanage partners:

  • Special Needs Preschool: New Day North staff provide regular training and guidance to the teachers and assistants in a special needs preschool for eight children with some of the most challenging long-term special needs in one of our orphanage partners.
  • Feeding Intervention Program: In another orphanage partner, New Day North provides specialized toddler formula, customized menus, basic monthly evaluations and regular coaching on feeding for several specific children with significant feeding difficulties.

In addition, New Day North regularly conducts a wide range of training programs in government orphanages in Wulanchabu and Baotou.

  • Therapy: New Day North partners with therapists who come regularly to train staff, evaluate children, and provide specific therapeutic guidance for the children we are helping.
  • Special Education: New Day North’s special education team helps to assess the children periodically and provide them with goals to help them grow and develop.
  • Nanny Training: New Day North works closely with nannies, training them to work with children who have special needs.

Medical Support

Pediatric Consulting: New Day North’s onsite pediatrician provides regular consultative services to medical personnel in government orphanages with whom we partner.
