Prudential has announced strategic partnerships with six non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Hong Kong to promote a more sustainable, responsible and inclusive future for the city’s wider community.
The NGOs are the Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service, Junior Achievement, The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, Time Auction, KELY Support Group, and Tung Wah Group of Hospitals.
Prudential will leverage these partnerships to support its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives within the key domains of “Financial Education”, “Health”, “Social Capital” and “Community Investment”.
As part of these partnerships, Prudential will also engage over 1,000 volunteers in its forthcoming Prudential Volunteer Month in October.
One of the notable initiatives involves the Hong Kong Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service, for which Prudential’s employees and consultants have collectively donated over 800 bags of blood, resulting in the potential saving of more than 2,400 lives.
Prudential will also partner with Junior Achievement to boost financial literacy among primary school children; The Cha-Ching Financial Education Platform, to teach children key money management principles; KELY Support Group to facilitate job readiness training and arrange potential internships at Prudential or other SMEs for ethnic minority students; Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups to improve the financial literacy and career planning of secondary students; and the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals on a project that provides cleaning supplies, hygienic supplies, and canned food to underprivileged communities.
Lawrence Lam, Chief Executive Officer of Prudential Hong Kong, commented “”Prudential’s purpose of ‘For Every Life. For Every Future.’ reflects our commitment to create greater value for society and a positive sustainable impact for today’s and future generations, through our collaborations and volunteer work with our NGO partners.”
