Hong Kong Land today announced two additional community partners in educational initiatives, The Society of Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention, and We R Family Foundation. Since its inception, Hong Kong Land HOME FUND has committed a total of some HK$17 million to youth educational projects in Hong Kong and provides a continuum of educational support services to help young people from school age to young adults.

“The new tranche of educational funding will assist in youth personal growth and development, enhancing their job readiness skills and building their confidence as they transition into responsible and valued adult members of society. This is a testament to our on-going commitment to the community as an integral part of our first phase HK$100 million Hong Kong Land HOME FUND,” explained Mr Robert Wong, Chief Executive of Hong Kong Land.

“Young people in Hong Kong are our future leaders, innovators and game changers. We are therefore creating a multi-faceted approach to support youth development in order to help them develop their full potential.”

The Society of Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention, Hong Kong project aims to enhance the Chinese language proficiency of ethnic minority youth and engage them in career planning where language proficiency can be a major obstacle in education, occupational attainment and upward social mobility.
