Hong Kong has 1.35 million people living in poverty and over 728,400 are women (54%). Many women are at a disadvantaged position, as they have to take care of their family and cannot work full-time. In order to support women in need, SoCO has partnered with Les Beatitudes to provide training to over a hundred mothers on handmade bags and leather goods. We encourage men to support by donating their neckties as material to re-use and recycle, a “HeForShe”project.  Through the handmade art and craft, we retell the story of the city through interesting and unique Hong Kong heritage and transportation all via collage designs.
