Social enterprises: contributing to well-being
Executive Director at lunar new year

Empowerment of young members of the community is our goal and the concept of social enterprise (SE)*, now encouraged by governments in many parts of the world, fits well with our mission. SE is all about providing additional opportunities for employment and participation through the active engagement of government, businesses and the Third Sector all working together.

The question of how best to implement social enterprise projects within the existing framework of the welfare state presents a challenge. The SE model usually involves integration with corporate social responsibility programmes or support from government seed funding but the key issue here is co-operative effort. Experience overseas has shown that SEs can nurture social capital by developing a culture of self-reliance. This is a culture that we in Hong Kong identify with strongly. Let’s pull together to make it work.
