One of the things we’re most excited about here at GWCA is the increasing opportunities for adoptees to travel on a heritage or homeland tour. Due to the generosity of the Chinese Ministry of Civil Affairs and the CCCWA, families are more able to travel on the trip of a lifetime because of grants subsidizing the intra-China travel for any adoptee(s). This means your kiddo travels partially free!
An example of a great opportunity like this is the Yunnan Heritage Tour. This tour is a truly special opportunity for your adoptee to visit their homeland, in particular Yunnan province.
We are partnering with CCCWA as well as the provincial Civil Affairs to offer an amazing ten-day tour specifically designed for families that have adopted from Yunnan province. You will be visiting Beijing and walking the Great Wall, the incredible and powerfully beautiful Stone Forest in Yunnan, visiting Kunming Child Welfare Institution, as well as engaging in some one in a lifetime opportunities for hands-on experience with Chinese culture.
You don’t have to be a GWCA family to be a part of this tour, and additional family members are also welcome. Please feel free to invite your fellow adoptive families!
