We empower the working poor in Hong Kong
480.000 people in Hong Kong are poor, despite one or more family member having a job. We want to make their lives better.
Access to Community
Our platform enables the working poor to directly access social community, training and employment services; with a promise to create and sustain an improvement in their overall well-being.
Our first centre, opened in January 2015 in the heart of Wan Chai.
Located in an area developed in the 1950’s under the New Town concept.
Opened in Feb. 2016, in the area with the world’s highest population density.
Access To Community
Our 3 centres in Hong Kong give the workers a place to mingle, a chance to share experiences and make friends. Some of our members tend to be isolated, our centres are an ideal place for them to connect and receive help from social workers.
Our aim is to provide a personalised and warm support to each of our member. Our social workers provide them with individual counselling, personal career advice and support, while sharing job industry knowledge and job opportunities.
COVID-19 Prevention Assistance
At the outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020, we took immediate action to source medical masks and hygiene items for our members when these were not readily available in the community. With the generous support of our donors, hygiene packs were distributed successfully to those in need. We also started offering food assistance and food packs to the community.
Our number 1 objective is to help our members to get a better job. We provide coaching and job support on diverse themes (computers, English, Mandarin,..) as well as an access to professional trainings organized by our corporate partners.
Thanks to our partner Food Angel, we serve a FREE lunch-set to our members every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. A total of more than 200 dietician-supervised meals are served every day in our 3 centres.
