Enrich financial literacy programme
Since 2018, we have organised financial literacy workshops for Hong Kong’s migrant domestic helpers in partnership with Enrich, a charity which promotes the economic empowerment of migrant domestic workers. Through these workshops, participants learn financial planning skills to help them avoid becoming a target of financial scams and negligence. By utilising the expertise of our colleagues in areas such as bonds, funds and insurance, we have held 48 sessions in English and Bahasa with nearly 700 participants since inception.
The KPMG Foundation has been one of the corporate partners for Project WeCan – a ‘business-in-community’ initiative that that provides students who are disadvantaged in learning with various learning opportunities.
We have been supporting Caritas Tuen Mun Marden Foundation Secondary School, where 80 percent of students come from over 18 countries and are non-Chinese speakers. Our people also became mentors for Marden students through the Life Buddies programme launched by the Commission on Poverty. The aim is to help underprivileged youth achieve upward mobility in society, and thereby reduce intergenerational poverty. We have held activities such as mentorship programmes, company visits and job tasting programmes, enabling students to adopt positive attitudes towards their career.
