Mission & Vision
The Hong Kong Network for the Promotion of Inclusive Society (HKNPIS) was founded as a non-profit organization in July 2011 by a group of passionate people with disabilities, social workers and professionals.
Our mission is to facilitate equal participation of persons with disabilities in the community, and realize a more inclusive and altruistic society. We facilitate equal participation in sports, education & training as well as arts and culture and technology applications. We also actualize the collaboration of the Government, businesses and civil society on creating an accessible environment that is conducive to our ultimate goal of “equal contributions for an inclusive society”. (IR File No.: 91/11809)
“Fearless Dragon Running Team”, “Fearless Dragon Cycling Team” and “Fearless Dragon Trailwalker Team” were set up to encourage people with disabilities to train up their bodies and minds, and to enhance their self-confidence. Team members also take part in charitable races to contribute to the community.
Education & Empowerment
Knowledge and skills can change destiny. We support the children of parents with disabilities by providing one-on-one tutoring and personal growth counseling for more than 100 families (nearly 120 primary and secondary school students). We also organize various parent-child activities to promote the physical and mental health of students, and facilitate the communication between family members. In addition, our disabled speakers regularly organize school talks to convey messages of inclusiveness and self-improvement We have been visiting more than 40 primary and secondary schools each year, reaching over 6,000 students.
Arts & Culture
A range of arts and cultural activities were organized with our partners, in order to enhance the disabled’s capability of art appreciation and enrich their cultural life and experiences. Every year, our member will participate in the Stargaze Camp, and regularly organize cultural and artistic experiential activities, such as ceramic production, twisting balloons, playback theatres, magic and sign language songs performances.
Universal Design Technology
The adoption of universal design technologies in the community empower disabled people to achieve independent living through gaining access to information and communication.
