BUSINESS ACTION ON POVERTY
Business Action on Poverty inspires, facilitates and encourages businesses to take action on one of Hong Kong’s most pressing issues – poverty.
Almost 1.2 million people in our city, that is 1 in 6 residents, including 1 in 5 children, live in poverty. More than ever, we recognise that the business sector has a critical role to play in the fight for poverty alleviation.
Business Action on Poverty acts as a resource to help businesses create real change in their communities and provides the tools to do so.
