Since 2015, the Amity Foundation has invested about 3.42 million RMB in a three-year long project conducted in the northwest China provinse of Gansu.

The foundation reported that it hoped that the women's development project could help the women in Wayaowan Village and Youfeng Village of Anding District, Dingxi find the best development pattern to reduce their working hours and increase their incomes. The project encourages them to participate more in community public affairs, to promote their awareness of self-development, and to cultivate the corresponding development skills to eventually achieve sustainable development of themselves and their communities.

The project cycle is from the first day of 2015 to the last day of 2017. The main project activities include the structural adjustment of agricultural production, livestock breeding, construction of farm houses for animal keeping, staple crop planting, capacity construction, and the construction of local women's associations.

The project's assistance fund comes from Germany's Bread for the World.
