Our vision is to mitigate the cycle of child poverty and to reduce cross-generational poverty in low income families in Hong Kong. Situated in Sham Shui Po, the poorest district in Hong Kong, we have a calling to serve underprivileged families around the poverty lines by providing them with short term food relief and long term education opportunities, so their lives can be changed.
In view of the income inequality and serious food waste problems in Hong Kong, J Life Foundation Limited was founded in January 2012 and registered as a Hong Kong charity in July 2013 (IR: 91/12833) with an aim to relieve poverty by tangible and intangible aids. Founded by Ms Elli Fu, it is a privately funded non-profit organization (NGO) aims to empower at-risk children and families in underprivileged communities in Hong Kong.
J Life believes physical and psychological needs go hand in hand. We create a safe place where families can come together, share their burdens, harvest relationships to create connectedness, and encourage members to help others to promote self-efficacy. Through a community setting, we aim to give them hope, which would eventually be a blessing to others as well as Hong Kong.
