EMPOWERING EVERYONE IN HONG KONG TO VOLUNTEER!
Participants take part in Hike for Hong Kong to raise funds for local charity HandsOn Hong Kong. The HandsOn team develop service programs to help local, under-served non-profit organizations and connect them with the volunteers they need to achieve their mission.
Each month, HandsOn runs up to 200 volunteer activities as a free public service, supporting more than 100 NGO partners who focus on causes such as alleviating hunger and poverty, educating children, supporting people with disabilities, environmental conservation and more.
In 2018 alone, HandsOn supported 82,000+ Hong Kong people in need by empowering volunteers to give more than 37,000 hours of their time to serve the community.
