To encourage the healthy development of local children, the city of Guigang in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region has established hundreds of dedicated activity centers over the last year.

The 644 Children's Home centers each feature three key ways to better protect children, including an expert think tank, a child protection commission and a volunteers' association.

The city-wide professional team comprises 46 experts in education, medical health, judiciary and other social organizations.

The experts are ready to give their professional guidance, such as explanations on the law, or offer psychological counseling.

In Gangbei District of the city, the Child Protection Commission comprises of members of the local public security team, women's federations, the health and family planning commission, the bureau of civil affairs and the bureau of education, offering diverse services for kids.

The commission aims to actively detect child abuse early on, carry out timely measures to assist those who suffer from violence, and help them recover.

Sponsored by Guigang government, the Hecheng Volunteers Association, with over 42,000 members, also contributes towards the children protection efforts.

The organization helped raise money and goods donated by charitable people, valued at nearly 100,000 yuan (U.S.$ 15,384) which provided assistance to children around 5,000 times.

To date, volunteers of the organization have carried out 89 educational activities on anti-violence, physiological hygiene, psychological health and many other topics.
