Grassroots Future is a registered charity working with grassroots and refugee-led organisations to build capacity and self-sufficiency in Hong Kong. We do this through education, well-being, cultural/community event programming and investing in the education of future generations.
Our sustainability goals for 2021:
SDG 2: End Hunger – Grassroots Future is helping the refugee community access food banks and food distribution resources while also teaching members of the community how to become more self-reliant with cooking and related skills.
SDG 3: Good Health & Wellbeing – Grassroots Future has a wellbeing program open to refugees and asylum seekers to provide trauma-informed support, coaching and counselling as well as safe spaces to heal.
SDG 4: Quality education – Grassroots Future working with refugees to learn for life, learn skills relevant to the digital age and invest in children’s educational expenses and overall well-being.
SDG 12: Responsible consumption & production – Grassroots Future sources second-hand and preloved items for distribution to the refugee community. Grassroots partners with organisations which are involved in food rescue to reduce food wastage. Additionally, Grassroots runs fabrication workshops with the refugee community using sustainable fibres and upcycled materials.
SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions – Grassroots Future organises and engages the refugee community in Hong Kong directly on projects and events which create a platform for refugees to connect with other members of society.
