About Les Beatitudes
Les Beatitudes is set up to provide job opportunities for women from underprivileged families who want to and need to work in a flexible arrangement and home environment. We collect men’s neckties, co-design products with local artists to feature the best of Hong Kong, and train women on crafting and sewing skill. Via a simple tie, we created a platform that connects those who want to help and need help. Thus, Les Beatitudes successfully tied up very diverse and unrelated groups to address social issues collectively.
Training and job opportunities are created for the women mainly in Sham Shui Po, Wong Tai Sin and Tin Shui Wai. We also organized very impactful empowerment activity to bring the sewing moms to places where their products are sold, like Asia Society Hong Kong Centre, HKTDC Design Gallery, Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel, etc.
