Over the past 5 years, we have made a positive impact towards over 60,000 elderlies in their physical health and psycho-social aspects through delivering active ageing activities and inter-generational programs.

In 2017, we started the ‘Active Aging” Community Empowerment Project aims to build social network in districts in Hong Kong. Through the power of music, dance and happiness, we empower and transform the roles of the elders from the ones in need of care to active participants, change the stereotypes towards the elders as weak and social burden; we bring the residents in the community together, to care for the elders in need and build the cross-generational support and care network in the community, and build collaboration with districts partners.

Join us to forge the future elderly care industry for Hong Kong.
