LETTER FROM OUR FOUNDER AND CHAIR OF THE BOARD Dear Friends, As HandsOn Hong Kong entered its 12th year of operation, we could not have predicted what a challenging year 2019 would be for all of us. However, while each of our daily lives were affected, none were impacted more than the forgotten: those in our city who were already living below the margins. More than 20% of our city’s nearly 7.5 million residents live in poverty, including one in three elderly and one in four children. HandsOn Hong Kong, like many of our non-profit partners, was hard hit financially and programmatically, forced to cancel or scale back upwards of 30% of our programs. Yet despite these difficult times, our community continued to come together to serve those in need. In fact, thanks to the support of people like you, HandsOn even expanded its services over the course of 2019. Some highlights include: adding 62% more volunteer programs; expanding the week-long community service initiative, Serve-a-thon, to deliver 7,500 hours of service to 21,000 people in need; strengthening our youth and family volunteer programs; and much more. Please read on to learn more about our programs and achievements. Lastly, I want to thank you for your continued commitment to making Hong Kong a better place through volunteer services. I look forward to serving together for years to come. Sincerely, Shaun Bernier Founder & Board Chair HandsOn Hong Kong HandsOn Hong Kong Annual Report 2019

LETTER FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Dear Friends, Going into 2019, we had no idea what events would be in store for our city and the eventual impact on our work. Upon reflection, I must say that I couldn’t be more proud of the resilience of our team and the commitment of our wonderful volunteers and supporters. Despite the challenges gripping Hong Kong, we saw nearly a 10% increase in the overall number of volunteers engaging in community service and an expansion of our services to support even more local charities. Over the year, HandsOn volunteers gave 36,455 hours of their time to serve more than 70,000 people in need. As an organization dedicated to innovating to meet the changing needs of our community, we launched two new services to benefit our non-profit partners. Our skills-based volunteering platform provides non-profits with access to pro bono expertise and enables volunteers to use their professional skills to support capacity-building needs. In 2019, our team successfully matched 50 volunteers to support the missions of our charity partners. Another challenge for under-resourced charities is having the space to bring teams together in an uplifting and inspiring environment to plan, strategize and brainstorm solutions to critical community challenges. With this in mind, we launched the HandsOn ‘Design Thinking’ Space for NGOs. It’s been a thrill to see our non-profit partners putting the space to great use. Against the backdrop of last year’s events, several of our fundraising programs and corporate activities were postponed or cancelled, significantly impacting our revenue. But our work never stopped and our commitment to service never wavered. We are grateful to so many of our long-time volunteers, supporters and friends— who worked hand in hand with us to ensure community needs were met, even in the most uncertain of times. Sincerely, Sue Toomey Executive Director HandsOn Hong Kong HandsOn Hong Kong Annual Report 2019

EMPOWERING EVERYONE IN HONG KONG TO VOLUNTEER In January 2019, the HandsOn Hong Kong team and OUR MISSION board members were guided through a half-day Mission and Vision workshop run pro bono by the Empowering everyone in Corporate Responsibility team at PwC. Hong Kong to volunteer. This session helped us to reflect on our charity’s OUR VISION purpose and identity and how we harness our volunteers’ time and talents to create positive impact. We envision a Hong Kong where After an afternoon of reflection, brainstorming and everyone serves together to meet healthy debate, we ended the workshop with an updated HandsOn Hong Kong Mission and Vision all social needs. reflective of our organization and what drives our work.

We perform our work for the community as a free public service — at no cost to our non-profit partners or individual volunteers. 11 HandsOn Hong Kong Annual Report 2019

ADDRESSING HONG KONG’S MOST PRESSING ISSUES HandsOn Hong Kong volunteer programs are designed to serve a variety of causes needing attention in our community.

BY THE OUR VOLUNTEERS IN 2019 NUMBERS Each year HandsOn Hong Kong recruits and manages thousands of 36,455 volunteers on behalf of our non-profit partners as part of our mission to mobilize and empower the community to help address social needs. Individual volunteer In 2019 we recruited 7,297 volunteers to take part in 3,682 activities—a service hours 9% year-on-year growth in the number of volunteers and a 62% increase in the number of programs. 3,682 Our volunteers serve the local community in many ways. HandsOn service programs range from mobile literacy workshops that help the Volunteer activities elderly to stay connected, to programs that equip youth with organized disabilities with employable skills or tree planting and reforestation days that allow families to play a direct role in conservation. 7,297 HandsOn volunteers also continue to be some of Hong Kong’s most Active volunteers dedicated. In 2019, Alan Wong performed 1,125 hours of community service, with another 47 volunteers each giving more than 100 hours to support HandsOn projects—a group that we see continue to grow each year.

OUR VOLUNTEER LEADERS HandsOn Hong Kong’s Volunteer Leaders are instrumental to the running of our year-round calendar of volunteer activities. Typically, they commit to manage a specific program for a minimum of three months, but many of these individuals have worked with us for years. These Volunteer Leaders manage their respective service programs by coordinating pre-event reminders, taking attendance, conducting onsite briefings and providing post-program outcomes and feedback to our team. Our Volunteer Leaders’ contribution to HandsOn Hong Kong—and the charities and beneficiaries we serve—is invaluable to our work.

VOLUNTEERS USING THEIR SKILLS TO HELP OTHERS In addition to thousands of volunteers who serve with us by literally being “hands on” to provide support, there are many others who use their professional skills on a pro bono basis to assist us with our business operations. In 2019 our work was supported by financial advisors, lawyers, grant writers, IT specialists, graphic designers and one particular group of professional coaches. The amazing team at Transcend International embarked on a pro bono partnership with HandsOn in 2019 that saw our whole team receive six sessions each with their own personal coach. They guided us in areas such as setting appropriate goals, exploring options, finding self-value and taking “skillful’’ action. We could not recommend them more highly—or give enough thanks to our coaches Amy, Elaine, Fernanda, Liza and Victoria. ELAINE LUEY A CERTIFIED COACH, TRANSCEND INTERNATIONAL Our Director of Corporate Partnership & Development, Lisa It is my privilege to be part of the Transcend coaching with Elaine during their coaching session team that provided individual coaching to the HandsOn team. Along with Transcend Alumni, Amy Wong, Fernanda Baker, Liza Rosen and Victoria Fung, we each partnered with two of the HandsOn team members. Through the feedback from the team, we are delighted to know they valued the support on both personal and professional development. They were empowered to explore different perspectives and generated creative and practical options to continue on their development journey. 23


OUR NON-PROFIT PARTNERS IN 2019 BY THE In 2019 HandsOn Hong Kong supported 106 NGO partners and 70,831 of NUMBERS the beneficiaries they provide services to. Our team works with charities we believe can most benefit from volunteer support. With this in mind, our 70,831 focus is primarily on supporting under-resourced non-profits directly serving the local community.

We regularly review and accept new non-profit partners, based on capacity, and maintain the following criteria for all charities we work with: • Must be registered as a charitable institution under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance or government recognized • Primary focus of work is serving local needs in Hong Kong • Activities for volunteers are service focused, rather than fundraising • Commit to report on impact of volunteer programs, including number of beneficiaries and volunteers • Provide event photos for record and external communication • Participate in annual evaluation survey • Maintain open communication with HandsOn sta

SIGNATURE VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS The 3,682 volunteer activities supported or run by HandsOn Hong Kong in 2019 served a wide range of social needs across the community. Here is a closer look at three signature volunteer programs our team was instrumental in developing for our non-profit partners and their service users. 1. EMPOWERING THE ELDERLY WITH MOBILE LITERACY SKILLS Community Challenge Program description On average, 68% of people aged over 60 in Hong Kong Throughout 2019, HandsOn Hong Kong own a smartphone, according to the latest Census and partnered with two elderly centres that Statistics Department figures.

This program was made possible by the Vera Ruttonjee Desai Charitable Fund. 10 Gerontechnology Landscape Report (Our Hong Kong Foundation, June 2017) HandsOn Hong Kong Annual Report 2019 21

2. WORK PLACEMENTS FOR YOUTHS WITH DISABILITIES Community Challenge At the end of 2018, HandsOn ran a 10-week, volunteer- supported program teaching practical o ce skills to young people with intellectual disabilities, led by facilitators from SENsational. Census and Statistics Department estimates suggest that close to 50% of people with intellectual disabilities in Hong Kong live in poverty. Securing suitable employment for this group is incredibly challenging, with just 8% of school leavers going on to find work. One of our focuses at the start of 2019 was to actively seek work placement opportunities for graduates of this program, enabling them to contribute to society and their families in a meaningful way.

This Family Volunteering Festival was made possible by support from the English Schools Foundation. 23 HandsOn Hong Kong Annual Report 2019

MEET AN NGO LEADER SUPPORTED BY HANDSON We worked with 106 non-profit partners in 2019, managing almost 200 volunteer activities each month to support their operations. By mobilizing volunteers for these organizations—and being an extension of their teams—we free them up to focus on their frontline work and larger mission.

BESPOKE CORPORATE PROGRAMS The community engagement programs we ran for our corporate partners in 2019 ranged from large-scale, one-o company-wide events to regular programs allowing ongoing employee engagement as part of a larger global initiative. Here is a closer look at three of these types of programs. 1. CHINA EVERBRIGHT—A HALF DAY OF SERVICE Because we can see, we would ignore lots of small but beautiful things. I learned today the importance of paying attention, and really feeling the people and things around us. There is always a solution for everything—we just need to think creatively sometimes to figure it out. - China Everbright volunteers In 2019, 14 China Everbright volunteers participated in a sports fun day for 27 students with visual impairments. This specially designed day provided volunteers with valuable experience in interacting with, and supporting the needs of, these students. ENHANCING FUNDAMENTAL MOVEMENT SKILLS: Students with visual impairments often lack opportunity to practice Fundamental Movement Skills such as balancing, running and throwing—all of which are building blocks for participation in sports and the physical and emotional benefits this brings. This program developed these skills by introducing sports such as table tennis and football and use of a Balance Ball. EMPOWERING STUDENTS WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENTS: Volunteers were coached to provide clear and descriptive verbal instructions to the students in order to help them complete different tasks. They also provided physical guidance and support throughout the activities. Volunteers exchanged ideas and experiences with students during the morning, expanding their perceptions and understanding of this important group. HandsOn Hong Kong Annual Report 2019 30

2. PVH—HARNESSING EMPLOYEE PASSION PVH Asia teamed up with HandsOn Hong Kong to engage a 133 group of primary four students to participate with their associates in an upcycling workshop. Together they turned STUDENTS ENGAGED surplus branded T-shirts into useful tote bags for low-income UPCYCLED TOTE BAGS CREATED elderly. This service program highlights how leveraging business purpose—and harnessing employee passion—can ELDERLY SUPPORTED e ectively create a chain of impact. *Additional surplus T-shirts donated to Redress PROMOTING ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY: The program provided an opportunity for volunteers and students to learn more about textile waste issues in Hong Kong and inspired them to bring-to-life their own upcycling ideas. The activity also encouraged them to reuse materials creatively instead of disposing of them, in their daily lives. UNLEASHING STUDENTS’ CREATIVITY: Through the process of turning unwanted T-shirts into tote bags, students used their sense of creativity to paint and decorate the material with festive elements. By the end of the program, each participant had created upcycled bags of their own design. CARING FOR THE ELDERLY: The tote bags made by volunteers and students were then used in a care pack delivery program supporting local elderly, bringing warmth and support to the community and expanding the environmental sustainability of the workshop. Being in the fashion business, our associates have wardrobes full of clothes. Participating in clothing drives or upcycling workshops is a meaningful way for them to do good. Something that we love to tap into are CSR and volunteering activities such as these that are accessible and relevant for our team. We are always thrilled to partner with HandsOn Hong Kong to use our associates’ time and passion to support the community.

3. METLIFE — HIGHLIGHTS FROM A YEAR-ROUND PROGRAM HandsOn Hong Kong and MetLife have worked together on the company’s volunteer programs to engage and provide service opportunities for their Hong Kong sta since 2017. In 2019, HandsOn developed and ran four programs with MetLife. Three of these are highlighted below. IN-OFFICE ECO-WORKSHOP: HongKongers send an average of 1.53kg of waste to landfill daily. MetLife ran two eco-workshops in their o ce in 2019 to enhance employees’ understanding of reducing and re-using for environmental protection. Guided by an instructor, volunteers spent an afternoon using sustainably-sourced ingredients to make eco- friendly mosquito repellent balms. The final products were distributed to local elderly for their use. SOUP DELIVERY FOR VULNERABLE ELDERLY: Over 10 percent of elderly in Hong Kong reportedly show signs of depression—and even more are lonely. MetLife volunteers visited local elderly who live alone or su er from low mobility, delivering nutritious soup and care packs and chatting with them to provide social connection. Through the visit, volunteers also helped the elderly centre to understand the needs of the elderly and any health concerns they might have. Program description HALLOWEEN CELEBRATIONS FOR STUDENTS: A third of Hong Kong children have some kind of special educational need, but many lack access to adequate community support. MetLife volunteers and their families welcomed students from a special school to their office on Halloween as an opportunity to celebrate and engage with the larger community. The children—most of whom had never joined a Halloween party—spent their afternoon making candy bags with volunteers and enjoying the festive traditions of “Trick or Treat” and “Piñata Smashing”. 149 NUMBER OF VULNERABLE PEOPLE SUPPORTED BY METLIFE IN 2019 HandsOn Hong Kong Annual Report 2019 32

HONG KONG’S COMMUNITY SERVICE WEEK MAY 4TH - 12TH, 2019 Hong Kong’s community service week, Serve-a-thon —organized by HandsOn Hong Kong—returned to the city from May 4th to 12th, bringing together individual volunteers, families, companies, schools and universities and over 50 local non-profits for nine days of consecutive volunteering. The 2019 edition of Serve-a-thon returned against the backdrop of a recent city-wide study undertaken by HandsOn and Nielsen showing that 83% of volunteers believe that community service has a positive effect on their well-being and mental health. Serve-a-thon was launched as a way to help people take that first step in volunteering—providing each participant with a platform to turn their good intentions into action! MORE THAN 2,400 VOLUNTEERS IN ONE WEEK The tremendous support for Serve-a-thon 2019 from across the larger community resulted in considerable growth of the initiative. 2,484 volunteers of all ages came together for Hong Kong’s community service week, giving their time at 152 activities across the city. 7,522 hours of service were performed by volunteers, a growth of 20% from the previous year. Hong Kong is definitely a place where we can lose 152 SERVICE ACTIVITIES touch of what is important. Going out there, seeing 2,484 INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEERS people that are in need and being able to help them 7,522 VOLUNTEER HOURS really lets me go home and appreciate my job, my family and just live a happier life. Allan Song HandsOn Hong Kong Volunteer

MORE THAN 21,000 PEOPLE IN NEED SUPPORTED The Serve-a-thon mission is to help those who serve. Many of the non-profit partners the HandsOn team supports year-round depend on volunteers to make their programs possible. 52 non-profits participated in Serve-a-thon 2019, with their main drivers being to enhance public awareness on the importance of community engagement and to raise the profile of their organization and the work they are doing. Joining Serve-a-thon allows more people to know about our school and students, let them know we are here, and we are taking volunteers. It also enables students to interact with 21,194 PEOPLE IN NEED people from all walks of life, and lets their abilities and SUPPORTED talents be recognized by the community. 52 LOCAL NON-PROFITS Ms. Ng SERVED Teacher, Po Leung Kuk Anita L.L. Chan (Centenary) School 30 COMPANIES GIVING THEIR TIME AND TALENTS Serve-a-thon 2019 received another year of fantastic support from the business community with 30 companies participating and helping to make the week of service possible. Most of these organizations put forward volunteer teams, each giving their time and talent to help transform Hong Kong. Their teams spent time combing hiking trails to clear debris, accompanying isolated elderly on cultural excursions, baking cookies with children with a family member affected by mental illness, and much more. At Allen & Overy we believe that by involving our staff, clients and alumni in community service, we can raise awareness of critical issues impacting our community and encourage meaningful change. HandsOn helps us to achieve this change through our participation in their volunteer activities. I encourage other organisations to support the Serve-a-thon and look forward to our continued partnership with HandsOn. Catherine Husted Head of Pro Bono and Community Investment, Allen & Overy Hong Kong


INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEER DAY International Volunteer Day was initiated by the UN General Assembly as an opportunity to recognize the power and potential volunteers have to effect positive change in their communities. HandsOn Hong Kong marked the occasion by bringing together 90 leaders from business and the community to focus on practical steps companies can take to meet community engagement goals. Pat Dwyer, Founder of The Purpose Business, looked at best practices in leveraging and reporting on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). HandsOn Board Member Ann Chu of Bloomberg led a discussion with Joe Chegia of PVH, Sara Cheong-Ingham of Moody's and Karen Seymour of human at work that provided insights on innovative approaches to engaging volunteers. This event was generously hosted by Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel for the fourth year. SHARING A ‘HANDS ON’ PERSPECTIVE As part of the program, the HandsOn team provided an overview of Hong Kong’s social needs and ideas for corporate service programs that are proven to have impact. HandsOn Associate Program Director Sophy Lai delivered a talk on the shifting landscape of Hong Kong's social needs and priority areas for the government in the coming year. Focus areas included meeting the needs of carers, competitiveness of youth and supporting mental well-being. Lisa Lam and Sue Toomey then shared our ‘Top Ten’ list of innovative service programs, showcasing some of the creative ways that volunteers are making a difference. Some of these included financial literacy, empowerment through technology and using Design Thinking to support non-profit operations.
