Partnering with Youth from Star Family (星之家)

by | Empowerment, Hong Kong, Jockey Club Start with Soap, Recycling

Recently we have started our partnership with the Star Family (星之家), which is a non-profit organization that serves youth with special educational needs (SEN). These young people help us process bottled amenities collected from hotels, like removing labels from the bottles before they are fit for recycling. We are amazed by their concentration and the quality of work done! This reinforces our belief this group of young people, even though considered disadvantaged in certain aspects, can still contribute to our society when given the right opportunity. 

Representing Ethnic Minority (M), Elderly (E) and Youth (Y), our MEY Programme provides dignified employment opportunities to disadvantaged groups in our recycling operations. It marks a new era of Soap Cycling’s impactful and innovative model for social inclusion.
