SHKP donates land for youth hostel to drive intergenerational harmony

SHKP recently donated a site in Yuen Long to Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui, to be developed into the city's first integrated service building for intergenerational harmony by the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council.

First-ever intergenerational integrated service centre

The Responsible Love and Intergenerational Harmony project will be the city's first collaboration between a non-governmental organization, the government and business on a project that serves the needs of children, young people and the elderly in one building. The site is just a few minutes from the West Rail Yuen Long station.

The building planned will have one floor of special child care centre, eleven floors of youth hostel and five floors as a care home for the elderly. It will serve children aged 0 to 6 with special needs, young singles and couples and seniors over 65. There will also be a church and multi-purpose rooms. Social workers will train and supervise people living in the youth hostel as volunteers in the childcare or senior centres to encourage more young people to work in the two fields.
