The Christian Action Social Enterprise Initiative aims to proactively create employment opportunities, further develop our various services to serve those in need through sustainable business models, and promote being environmentally friendly.
Since 2003, we are committed to providing employment opportunities, on-the-job training and retraining for the needy and the disadvantaged through various forms of "green community activities" and "the Green Collection Programme", to help job seekers to find sustainable employment. Some of the collected items and in-kind donations will be distributed to our service users or vulnerable families; some will be offered for sale at a significantly below market retail price.
At the same time, we actively co-organize green community activities to promote the messages of environmental protection with local leaders and organizations. We have successively set-up a number of Community Sales Outlets to promote the consumption concept of environmental protection and poverty alleviation. In recent year, we have also launched Green Connect, an initiative which advocates on upcycling, and the olive leaf*, a floral business. Through diversified business models, we are able to create an atmosphere of mutual help in the communities.
the olive leaf*
A simple asterisk: A shape that is organic and floral in nature is also a symbol used to indicate important significance or information. An olive branch was also the sign of new life and land delivered to Noah by a dove in the Christian scriptures. We draw inspiration from this story of new life, and hope and desire that the olive leaf* will bring this same life and hope to our community.
