About HandsOn Hong Kong

HandsOn Hong Kong (HOHK) is a registered charity whose mission is to empower everyone in Hong Kong to volunteer. We envision a community where everyone serves to meet social needs. Founded in 2007, the organization develops service programs to help local, under-served non- profit organizations and connects them with the volunteer manpower they need to achieve their mission. Each month, HOHK runs up to 200 volunteer activities as a free public service, supporting our 100+ NGO partners who focus on causes such as alleviating poverty, educating children, assisting the elderly, empowering people with disabilities, feeding the poor, helping the homeless, supporting animal welfare, environmental conservation and more. We regularly help companies achieve CSR and community engagement objectives by developing volunteer programs for employees. www.handsonhongkong.org.
