Corporate social responsibility is one of the main concerns of the Group and its companies, we have been actively participating and supporting in numerous charity projects. Many of the Group's companies have become active members in charity and fundraising efforts with UNICEF in Mainland China and Hong Kong during the past three years. The Group has also established a corporate volunteer team to foster volunteering spirit within the Group and to provide services to the community. The Group forges a stronger tie with the community at large through this continuous volunteer effort.
The New World Group concerns about the needs of the underprivileged group. The Group supported "Modern Apprenticeship" last year, a joint venture with Delia Group of Schools, providing scholarship, apprentice training for the Form 5 school leavers. The Group has sponsored all the operation expenditure, and encouraged staff attending mentorship training. The Group also provided job opportunities for some graduates upon completion of the programmes.

By initiating and organizing a wide range of charity campaigns and events in Mainland China and Hong Kong, we enriched community life and contributed to building a caring community and harmonious society.
