Society for Community Organization
St James' Settlement
The younger generation has been facing a more and more complex financial dilemma in Hong Kong. Moreover, they finally need to manage their own finance sooner or later. Providing a learning platform and establishing effective financial education strategies are crucial for the next generation to face different financial challenges in their life. We have known IEC for a while and we are very much in line with their mission in Hong Kong. We trust that HKSFL is a successful tool to strengthen young people’s financial knowledge and attitude. We believe that with collaboration, we can change the future of Hong Kong.
The Boys' and Girls' Clubs Association of Hong Kong
The Boys' and Girls' Clubs Association of Hong Kong strives to serve children and youth throughout different eras and lead to a successful life. Nowadays, most of the teenagers enjoy better materialistic life than before. However, there are lack of corresponding financial education courses in Hong Kong, and the concepts of financial management are fragmented in school curriculums. Thus, it sees the importance of advancing students' financial literacy in terms of risk management and money management.
We believe that HKSFL is an excellent platform to coordinate various resources, share experience, and provide professional guidance for our Programme.

We support the mission of HKSFL to creating momentum and facilitating synergies amongst different sectors in improving financial literacy of the Hong Kong population.
The Hong Kong Council of Social Service
NGOs is one of the key players in the financial education, especially for the vulnerable groups to help them 1. have a wise use of available resource, 2. explore the available resource in the community, and 3. build up the financial literacy of their next generation for preventing and alleviating poverty. With the HKSFL, opportunities are there for developing related services. The formulation of the HKSFL is a good move in response to the global trend. With the HKSFL, rooms are there for the tripartite collaboration among the government, business sector and the social service sector. The Government also needs to think seriously about the policies and supporting measures, which may involve different departments.
