In 2019 The DO opened a regional office in Hong Kong to empower talented individuals and organizations across Asia to lead in a purposeful economy and use business, entrepreneurship, and innovation as a force for good.
Some of our projects:
The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust: InnoPower@JC
Initiated and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, InnoPower@JC: Fellowship for Social Workers aims to build the innovative capacity of social workers in Hong Kong. The program encourages them to pioneer innovative projects in response to social challenges, thereby contributing to the long-term development of these sectors. Social workers, holding a strong influence on our next generation and the well-being of our community, are the key to creating a better society.
This talent-centered development program offers these professionals the privileges of time, space, management support and resources. Additionally, it provides a collaborative platform where they can equip themselves, through the local and overseas learning experience, with hands-on knowledge, cross-sectorial exposure and international perspectives that will inspire them to generate innovative solutions to address the increasingly complex social issues in the 21st century. As the programme partner, The DO Asia is responsible for planning, recruitment, training and project incubation to transform social workers into social innovators.
