How We Serve NGOs
We help NGOs to be more capable and give better service to beneficiaries by providing free management training workshops and consulting services. We are dedicated to serving NGO leaders, those who serve.
NGOs experience high demand for their services but have limited resources. How do you grow your organization to make a sizeable impact? What new skills can you and your team acquire to be more effective, efficient and sustainable?
We offer a variety of workshops with expert trainers and skilled volunteers – all at no charge. We prepare today’s NGO leaders to meet ongoing challenges and make a greater impact in their communities.
Through more than 900 sessions, ACS has served more than 700 NGOs. We have trained and supported more than 2,000 NGO leaders representing a broad range of social causes across Hong Kong and Asia.
Lauren is a veteran volunteer and champion of ACS who has been integral to the launch of two of our core programs – JC ENGAGE Digital Exploration and IGNITE seminar series. She also led the ACS team in 2018-19. Lauren has been instrumental to many of our successes over the years, and we are extremely grateful to have her as a partner. Read more about Lauren.
Every year, the United Nations celebrates the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) on 3 December which aims to promote the rights of people with disabilities in all aspects so that they can live in a fair and barrier-free society. The Hong Kong Society for Rehabilitation (HKSR) shares the same goal by not only providing physically rehabilitation service, but also focusing on disease prevention, health promotion and health-risk factor assessments.
Asian Charity Services defines Capacity Building as actions taken to create a positive impact on the organizational capacity and members of the nonprofits, thereby improving the overall effectiveness of how the nonprofit delivers its services and how it impacts the community.
ACS provides pro-bono, project-based training specifically for the leadership team of nonprofits. Current core programs offered include Strategic Planning, Board Governance and Fundraising. All projects are based on a pre-designed curriculum. We currently do not provide individually-customized consulting services.
ACS works specifically with the leadership team of NGOs. As such, executive directors, board members, as well as key senior staff are invited to participate in the workshops.
Here is an estimation of the time you need to commit to our training series.
Engage: 6-20 hours over 9-week depending on whether on not your NGO moves ahead with the program.
Sprint: 1 hour orientation + 9 hours on Hackathon day.
Ignite: 2 hours topical orientation + 4 hours seminar execution.
Ascend: 12-18 hours over 5-8 weeks.
