We hope to nurture these young souls, be present in their growth as they build their confidence, and to be their beacon to show them their path forward.

“Love Begins Here” Instilling the Feeling of a Loving Home
The ultimate goal of “Love Begins Here” programme co-launched by the Group and Teach For China, is to enable children to feel loved and being home. Home is children’s first school, and school is considered to be a second home for them. In the continuous journey of self-discovery and growth, every child needs patient and caring teachers to make the school a second home.
To raise public awareness about the well-being of children in rural villages, the Group launched the jewellery products with the theme of “Love Begins Here” to articulate the story of a child and a loving home. We are extending our invitation to the public to support empowerment through education in rural villages, so that we can light the path ahead and create a better future for the children.
