We are pleased to share that the Project Pitching Day of the NGO Leadership Programme, supported by Operation Santa Claus (OSC) and UBS, was held successfully last Friday, making the completion of the Programme 2018.
The Project Pitching Day allowed us to understand the pressing social issues in Hong Kong, and inspired us on the necessity to tackle the issues in different ways. The Champion went to the project, “Frozen Food Production Line”, developed by Mr Kenneth Choi from Everbright Concern Action.
