The HUB Hong Kong

Founded in 2013 by two Australians in Hong Kong – David Boehm and Bruce Stinson together with the Rotary Club of Kowloon North, The Hub Hong Kong is a centre in Sham Shui Po, one of the poorest districts in Hong Kong – where underprivileged kids can learn, develop and grow healthily and happily despite adverse living conditions.

Our mission is to enrich, embrace and empower children and youth with equal opportunities to become valuable and contributing members of our community.

Through the centre, we provide our members with academic support services such as daily homework guidance, recreational services such as music, art and drama classes and sports, health and wellness programs to facilitate their holistic development. We also offer personal guidance and counselling, as well as mentorship programs to help support their families overcome difficult situations. It is not only a space where children play and learn but also a place where they can call their “second home”.

The HUB Hong Kong cares for a community of over 1,200 members annually, including children aged 6-12, youth aged 12-18 and their parents. Through the service we provide, our members enjoy a range of benefits such as improvement on education performance, familial relationship, child’s sense of well-being and self-confidence and a healthier and well-balanced lifestyle.

The HUB Hong Kong works collaboratively with our affiliated charities, Childline Thailand and Shwe Ya Min Foundation, Myanmar. We share our learnings and resources across our network to be more effective and efficient in our work for helping underprivileged children in Asia.
