Heep Hong Society was awarded the Excellence in Collaboration Award and Excellence in Participation Award by the Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged (PFD) directed by the Social Welfare Department for its respective achievements of having solicited the sponsorship of numerous business partners and run a multitude of service projects.
In its 10th anniversary year, the PFD organised the Project Sharing cum Award Presentation Ceremony on 3 November (Thu). Over the years, 213 non-governmental organisations and schools have participated in the PFD. Heep Hong Society was one of the eight organisations which were commended on the occasion, and also one of the two organisations which received both awards.
The fund was set up in 2005 for the Government to provide grants to match the donations made by business organisations to support welfare bodies in running social welfare projects. In the past 10 years, the Society has actively implemented a variety of projects and activities with the sponsorship of the PFD, including the three-year ‘After School Tutoring Support for Students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) in Mainstream Schools’ which was launched in 2015.
