Abstract:China is still in the pre-civil-society state. The emerging grassroot NGOs are facing various problems, such as whether their status is legal or not, the lack of human resources and funds, and the need for building up creditability and popularity. Taking two voluntary organizations in Shanghai and Guangzhou as examples, this author tries to explore how the grassroot NGOs are establishing norms and regulations, devising development strategy, and setting up organizational framework. This author is especially concerned with the voluntary spirit the NGO activists demonstrated in their fight against all the difficulties and in their promotion of a civil society in China.
