“Every one of us is tenacious and dedicated and hard working. Yet we are also giving and loving and passionate. At Asian Charity Services we know we are building a stronger society supported by the professional leaders serving at NGOs across Hong Kong”.
Asian Charity Services is powered by a core team of staff, both paid and volunteer. Their drive and determination bring our workshops to life with detailed planning, expert content, well-matched volunteers, and all the right NGO leadership teams represented. We have a small office in Wan Chai where we lead operations.
Over the past decade we have learned that our team members are with us for a reason, a season or for life. Some are needed for a specific project or program (a reason). Others make a longer-term commitment and support a number of projects (a season). And some have dedicated a portion of their life and career to making Asian Charity Services a success (life). For each person’s contribution we are deeply indebted and very grateful.
Thank you from Asian Charity Services.
