Every day, 3,400 tonnes of food waste are sent to landfills in Hong Kong, while one million people live in poverty struggling to afford nutritious meals. Feeding Hong Kong bridges this gap by linking food companies and charities to redistribute surplus food from where it is plentiful, to where there is a need.

Hong Kong’s only non-profit swim school that empowers and connects communities. At Splash, we support people to take that first leap. People in Hong Kong who don’t normally have access to or the means for swimming lessons. That is, until now. Although learning to swim may seem difficult, at Splash, we think the solution is fairly easy: all it requires is connecting those who can swim with those who can’t, supported by partners who believe there should be no economic or cultural barriers to learning this important life skill.
