Background

Our 90 acre commercial site is nestled between Tai Lam Country Park and the Gold Coast, and its beautiful natural environment, our Global Handicrafts Fair Trade Shop and Café attract a number of visitors as well as those joining our volunteer and simulation programmes.

What we have

Information and materials are available on site. We are happy to meet and speak to volunteers to discuss the project in more detail before they commit. Scheduling and times are flexible according to the volunteer's availability and Crossroads' open hours (Tuesdays to Saturdays, 10am to 5pm), no time commitment is required.

Why this is important

Crossroads is developing some new experiences for Hong Kong families, and we're currently looking for people who can help maintain our site and set up new installations in order to provide a more comfortable environment and experience for our volunteers and public visitors. Our goal is to attract more people to come to Crossroads and be a part of our mission.

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.
