Community connections and creating a positive impact drives us at TEDxTinHauWomen. Our speaker-guest bond is the strongest element of our flagship event; we nonetheless consciously leverage this platform to highlight causes that are close to our volunteer community and draw attention to not-for-profit organizations that do exceptional work but need some support. We bring to light their stories in our event’s highly engaging “fair” element, creating an atmosphere for meaningful interactions.
So how do we select our charities for the year? Every year our volunteers propose names of the Hong Kong-based NGOs they want to support, and we collectively, via a voting system, identify three charities for that year. This year we will be shining light on – Pathfinders, Hope of the City and Plastic Free Seas- NGOs working on issues pertaining to children of migrant workers, the underprivileged, and sustainability.
Here’s a quick look at them:
- Pathfinders ensures the most vulnerable and unsupported children in Hong Kong are protected and respected, and their Migrant Domestic Worker (MDW) mothers are empowered to find a path to a brighter future.
- Hope of the City works to transform the lives of the underprivileged in Hong Kong, providing access to opportunities and believing in each person’s potential to succeed.
- Plastic Free Seas is a Hong Kong-based environmental charity focused on changing how we all view and use plastics in society today through education and action campaigns.
To foster a socially engaged community and create new experiences through our stimulating speaker talks and driven NGOs, our 2022 event “In Bloom” endeavors to spark conversations and actions that can collectively make all the difference.
Join us for a heartwarming afternoon at Xiqu Centre Thursday, 01 December 2022!
