Project Details

What we need

Background

Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation serving global need. We believe that, in a broken world that sees too much suffering, we should do all we can to link those who are in need with those who can provide help. So we provide an intersection, literally a crossroads, to bring both together, through 4 'global services' (https://www.crossroads.org.hk/home/our-work/). For many rural people in poverty, a bicycle completely transforms their life, as they can travel to work or take their goods to a more profitable market. Our bicycle department is in charge of overhauling bicycles so that they are ready to be allocated to those who are in need.

What we have

Further training will be provided to ensure the volunteer is able to handle the daily duties. Tools and materials needed for overhauling are also provided.

Why this is important

Crossroads is dedicated to providing help to those who are in need. Around 95% of the overhauled bicycles will then be allocated internationally, while the rest will go to those who are in need locally.

What we do

Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation serving global need. We believe that, in a broken world that sees too much suffering, we should do all we can to link those who are in need with those who can provide help. So we provide an intersection, literally a crossroads, to bring both together. • Global Distribution: This distributes Hong Kong's quality excess goods as needed, internationally and locally. It provides a crossroads between need and supply. • Global X-perience: This offers simulated x-periences of global need. It provides a crossroads between the lifestyles of the rich and poor. • Global Handicrafts: This sells fair trade goods from people in poverty. It is a crossroads between those needing a fair income and those with buying power. • Global Hand: This provides a 'matching' website for public- private partnerships. It is a crossroads between for-profit and non-profit organizations who wish to address global need.
