Project Details

What we need
  • Discuss details of the proposed business (a restaurant) with the refugee client at our office
  • During this meeting, provide guidance and support in drafting an income statement, a cash flow statement, and balance sheet of a restaurant etc.; if needed, audit a financial statement of the business plan
  • Work together with our refugee client on drafting a final business plan
  • Volunteers can either meet at the office during the suggested time slots or coordinate an alternative time slot to work with the client

One of our refugee clients wants to establish a business (a restaurant). In order to move forward with this plan, he is looking for an accountant who can assist him in crafting a business plan. The client is experienced in leading a restaurant in his home country but he lacks accounting skills and is not very familiar with business language. Therefore, he will need support in formulating a convincing business plan for his first business in Hong Kong.

What we have

We can provide a rough template of the business plan. You will also be able to learn more about the challenges refugee entrepreneurs face in Hong Kong and assist in overcoming them to facilitate our client's success.

Why this is important

At the core, we want to restore dignity to Hong Kong's most vulnerable populations. There are few things that strengthen our sense of self and our agency more than being able to express our talents and potential through our work. We want to provide this chance to this refugee client who is an entrepreneur at heart but needs help to overcome the administrative and systemic hurdles stacked against him. We would love for you to be part of this journey!

About the Organization

Hong Kong Dignity Institute


Human Rights
What we do

The Hong Kong Dignity Institute was borne out of the desire to better help exploited, abused and marginalised populations escape their situation and heal from cycles of trauma and abuse. Uniting the expertise of local professionals from different disciplines, our core areas of work include: (1) Integrated Client Services: We provide integrated legal and mental health support, as well as strategic guidance and referrals, to clients at one time in one space. (2) Collaboration: We maximise existing resources available by identifying coordination gaps and fostering partnerships across disciplines, organisational lines and national borders. (3) Research: We work alongside frontline service providers and universities to publish evidence-based research and reports to impact practice and influence reform.
