Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation serving global need. The organisation believes that, in a broken world that sees too much suffering, we should do all we can to link those who are in need with those who can provide help. So we provide an intersection, literally a crossroads, to bring both together.
There are four global crossroads services:
- Global Distribution: This distributes Hong Kong’s quality excess goods as needed, internationally and locally. It provides a crossroads between need and supply.
- Global Village: This offers simulated x-periences of global need. It provides a crossroads between the lifestyles of the rich and poor.
- Global Handicrafts: This sells fair trade goods from people in poverty. It is a crossroads between those needing a fair income and those with buying power.
- Global Hand: This provides a ‘matching’ website for public- private partnerships. It is a crossroads between for-profit and non-profit organisations who wish to address global need.
