Hands On

16 Jul

HandsOn Hong Kong was founded in 2007 and is an affiliate of the international volunteer network, HandsOn Network (HON), headquartered and registered as a nonprofit organization in the United States.

Their mission is two-fold: to help charities meet their volunteer needs and help individuals who want to give back to the community do so in a meaningful way. To accomplish their mission, they partner with local charities to develop volunteer projects and to recruit, train, and manage volunteers and volunteer projects. The types of volunteer projects they organize range from activities with children, such as helping local primary students improve their English skills and providing after-school tutoring to ethnic minority students, to helping the elderly and people with disabilities, to animal welfare, and other areas.
