Our vision is to be a value-driven social enterprise, that strives to support the less-advantaged families, and bring countable social impact to the society.

我們致力成為一所價值導向的社會企業,支援基層家庭,藉此帶來可評估的社會影響

The situation 現況
  • According to research conducted by The Hong Kong Council of Social Service, low-income families spend almost half of their household income on daily necessities and groceries
  • Families cannot afford retail products due to the high markup
  • Some families have no choice but to shop at chain supermarkets / shopping malls due to the lack of alternative suppliers in their neighborhood
  • 生活必需品成為家庭的主要經濟負擔:根據香港社會服務聯會的調查發現,食物及其他生活必需品佔基層家庭每月開支超過一半
  • 基層家庭未能負擔「超級市場價錢」
  • 一些基層家庭因居住的社區較少 街市和小型供應商的選擇,只能在區內較近的連鎖超級市場或商場購買日常所需的物品

Matthew was born into a low-income family. He grew up in a subdivided flat in Kowloon City and then moved into public housing in New Territories. Growing up in poverty has driven him to become a Registered Social Worker with more than 15 years of serving the underprivileged, from frontline to managerial grade. He graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Distinguished Scholarship and Dean List in 2013.

Prior to establishing Goods Co-Share, Matthew worked in grant making and project management in one of the biggest charity foundations in Hong Kong. He is also a part time lecturer and fieldwork supervisor in the City University of Hong Kong.

出身基層的Matthew 在分租房與公屋中長大,促使他成為一位從事基層服務的社工超過十五年。Matthew於2013年在香港中文大學以院長榮譽錄成績碩士畢業後,開始涉獵慈善基金項目管理及社工教學及督導工作,並於2016年成立社企「良由集貨」。
