  • Navigating the Career Journey for the Youth

    We have been partnering with NGOs since 2016 via our flagship NWS Career Navigator for Youth programme. The programme offers a broad range of career-planning support, including corporate visits, mentoring, career talks, mock interviews, meetings with CEOs, and job shadowing. Through this cross-sector collaboration among business, social welfare and education, our diverse business network provides opportunities for young people to meet industry experts and receive advice on career planning. Since 2016, the programme has organised more than 240 activities and provided career experiences to more than 7,200 participants.

    As part of this collaboration with Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) and the Centre of Social Impact, we are thus conducting a social impact assessment for this 4-year programme. This reviews its effectiveness and analyse its social impact on individuals, communities and organisations, and more importantly, identifying means for improvement in our future contribution to the programme.

  • Unleashing the Potential of Special Educational Needs (SEN) Children

    A new community programme Catch Your 5** was launched in FY2019, in partnership with the Salvation Army. It provides opportunities for children with special educational needs (SEN) to develop their talents, and fosters diversity and social inclusion. Multi-disciplinary non-academic training sessions and workshops enable SEN children to develop confidence and strengthen their social skills. The programme also supports the children’s families and aims to increase the public’s understanding of people with SEN.

  • Creating Social Value with Community Partners

    Our transportation businesses carry over one million commuters each day, and are leveraging this extensive reach with a focus on empowering and contributing to local communities.

    As part of our support for the ProjectGo initiative, developed by the Centre for Advancement in Inclusive and Special Education of The University of Hong Kong ("HKU"), NWFB and Citybus donated retired bus parts, including refurbished bus handrails and handles, bus poles with bells, and passenger seats to HHCKLA Buddhist Po Kwong School, which built a "mock bus" for its 300 students with special education needs. By going on a mock bus journey, these students were able to learn the social skills required to use public transport. Students from the school and volunteers from HKU also took a site visit to NWFB's bus depot.
