Join us for our annual World Refugee Day event, to celebrate refugee contributions to society and connect through culture and food.

About this event

Ahead of World Refugee Day (June 20), we are excited to present Grassroots Future in person for the first time since our "birth" late last year! Many of our friends in the refugee community and supporting partners will come together to showcase their talents and projects, and discuss why we should and how we can build a community that invests in a bottom-up future that welcomes and empowers the displaced.

About Grassroots Future

Grassroots Future is a registered charity in Hong Kong which came out of a desire to help refugee-led initiatives and grassroots organisations working with refugees build capacity. Grassroots Future focusses and develops programming around four key areas:

  1. Education: Supporting the needs of young people and adults through privately funded vocational training, mentorship, workshops and general skills training to improve capacity and self sufficiency.
  2. Community outreach: Community outreach and cultural events, which are curated by the refugee community, to engage different groups within society.
  3. Well-being: Provide safe spaces for healing and mental well-being through the arts and recreational activities.
  4. Investing in the future: Supporting the educational expenses of children through our initiatives and event programming.
