Redeem a 250 Testa Rossa model car from Phase 1 of the Shell V-Power X Ferrari Passion Series and we will donate HK$10 to the ‘Grant-in-aid’ Brightens Children’s Lives Charity Project of the St. James’ Settlement – an initiative that provides learning material for underprivileged kids. With your support, we can reach our donation target of HK$300,000 and create a brighter future for these kids.

Paving the way for underprivileged kids

We aspire to see our children grow under an equitable environment

Hong Kong is one of the cities in the world with severe income disparity between the rich and the poor. Around 200,000 children live under poverty line, representing one fourth of the children population of Hong Kong.   These children are deprived of many learning opportunities commonly enjoyed by others. Under such circumstances, they can hardly compete with their peers and thus, may have a lower chance of receiving higher education. As a result, the poverty of the underprivileged families will be extended to the next generation.

 

We are eager to help underprivileged children to overcome obstacles in growth

Seeing the deficiency in learning resources amongst underprivileged children, “Grant-in-aid” Brightens Children’s Lives Charity Project was launched in 2005. Through partnership with over 140 partners, the Project aims at improving the learning conditions of underprivileged children aged 3-15 and creating a brighter future for them. Since 2005, we have served over 130,000 underprivileged children, in which 45% of them received learning resources assistance.
