LOC: Love Our Community

Love Our Community (L.O.C.) first started in 2006 as a volunteer engagement programme where we worked with numerous non-profit organizations in providing volunteering opportunities to working adults.

But as we face the growing needs of youth, families and seniors in our society, we want to play our part in actively reaching out to these various groups. Therefore, we dedicate ourselves to transforming communities and are committed to establish a myriad of services that meets the needs of individuals and the families of both local and overseas communities.

OBJECTIVES

As we reach out to the seniors and families from the lower income group residing near the vicinity of HCC. We hope to achieve the following objectives through relationships building and consistent follow-up.
  • To motivates children and youth to study and excel in their studies.
  • To encourage seniors to engage in Healthy Lifestyle and Active Aging.
  • To inculcate the spirit of volunteerism to both seniors and families.
  • To provide volunteering opportunities to people from all walks of life.
  • To promote intergenerational relationships.

To be the candle or to be the mirror that reflects the light
