Résumé: Depuis 1978, la Réforme a changé considérablement tous les aspects de la Chine, tels que l’économie, la politique, la vie sociale et la conscience culturelle. Le changement se reflète aussi dans le développement des organisation sociales de Chine, surtout les organisations non gouvernementales(ONG). L’assistance sociale s’efforce de satisfaire les besoins des gens par l’offre des ressources et services concrètes. Comme les ONG s’impliquent de plus en plus dans l’assistance sociale en offrant des soins médicaux, l’aide éducative et des services, elles s’avèrent très importantes dans l’assistance sociale. Cet article analyse les rôles des ONG dans le domaine de l’assistance sociale, notamment dans la diminution de la pauvreté. L’article présent est composé de trois parties. La première partie présente un panorama du développement des ONG et leurs rôles en Chine. La deuxième partie met l’accent sur leurs rôles dans la diminution de la pauvreté en Chine et la dernière partie procède à éclaircir pourquoi les ONG peuvent jouer un rôle dans l’assistance sociale.
