On 12 March 2014, the Secretariat of Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged (PFD) of the Social Welfare Department (SWD) organised an 'Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged - Experience Sharing Session 2014' in Lady Trench Training Centre. Around 180 participants from 90 business corporations and NGOs attended the event.
Speaking at the PFD - Experience Sharing Session 2014, the Director of Social Welfare, Ms Carol YIP, JP hoped the sharing session could enable the participants to get to know more new partners and team up to run more welfare projects with the sponsorship of the PFD. Also, there was a video presentation showing appreciation to welfare NGOs, business corporations and Advisory Committee Members' continuous support to PFD. Mrs Grace LAM, MH, guest speaker and Vice President, Public & Government Affairs - Hong Kong & Southern China of ExxonMobil Hong Kong Limited, spoke on 'Corporate Social Responsibility Nowadays'. She said that PFD created a win-win situation. While the organisation could fulfill corporate social responsibility and promote its corporate image, NGOs could capitalise on the additional resources and expertise acquired from business corporations to run tailor-made projects for the needy.
Ms Rita CHING, guest speaker and Associate Director of The Women's Foundation, talked about 'Strategy to Establish and Sustain Partnership between Welfare Non-governmental Organisation and Business Corporation'. She shared her view on how to find a business partner, how to work with the business partner and what the corporations may gain from the partnership.
