What We Do

VOLUNTEER AND CHARITY OUTREACH

CHANG LIN MIGRANT SCHOOL – Pudong Shanghai

The CAC supports several charity organizations and one great example is the CAC’s outreach to migrant kids from very poor families in Pudong District. As the facilities at their schools are very basic, they are unable to enjoy the privileges other students in Shanghai are familiar with. We teach the kids about the Caribbean and provide English lessons. At the end of each season, the kids have a presentation about Caribbean Islands and to show our appreciation, and to provide for a need in their lives, we reward them with gift bags and supplies.

EVENTS and ACTIVITIES

The CAC organizes BBQs, Potlucks and has organized other Caribbean themed dinners. At these events Caribbean members cook Caribbean food, teach Caribbean dance and create a lively atmosphere for guests to enjoy our culture, camaraderie and hospitality. Funds raised at dinners are used for charity outreach.

NEW STUDENT SUPPORT

Assisting new students coming to China by providing information about China and Chinese culture to prepare them for their trip before arrival, as well as after, to help them assimilate to the unique Chinese culture. We also connect them with other CAC members who are available to assist them during their transition.

MEMBERSHIP DATABASE

The CAC has established a database of Caribbean nationals residing in China in order to keep them abreast of news, events and other activities related to the Caribbean. We keep in touch through events postings on our website as well as our INSTAGRAM page. Information in the database is not used without the owners permission.
