We celebrated our 10th anniversary and 6,000 lives better lived on November 20th, 2018! We are proud to have performed nearly 3,000 healthcare interventions, assisted on 200 legal matters and distributed supplies to 1,700 vulnerable mothers since we were founded in 2008.
To coincide with this big milestone we’ve launched a number of exciting new initiatives and projects.
New Chinese name and logo
We recently launched our new Chinese name and logo:
PathFinders: 融 幼 社
Cantonese: yung yau tse; Mandarin: róng yòu shè.
融sounds like the word domestic worker, meaning
to integrate, blend into
幼 = young, infant, children
社 = society
All Children Matter: 以及人之幼
Cantonese: ji kap jan zi jau; Mandarin: yǐ jí rén zhī yòu
English: To care for others young as if they are your own
10-year anniversary logo
We also created an anniversary logo to mark our 10-year milestone:
Client photo portrait series
To coincide with our anniversary, we launched a series of client portraits at our 10-year anniversary fundraising dinner in Hong Kong on November 2nd. We worked with esteemed photographer Julia Broad to create an intimate, heartfelt and uplifting series of photographs showcasing the journey we embark on with our clients from when they first find out they’re pregnant to when their baby is born because #allchildrenmatter.

10th anniversary fundraising dinner
We kicked off our 10th Birthday celebrations with a memorable fundraising dinner at The American Club in Tai Tam on November 2nd, 2018. We raised nearly HK$3 million in much-needed funds, which will go towards protecting Hong Kong’s ultra-vulnerable population of ethnic minority babies, children and migrant mothers. We are immensely #grateful for everyone’s support and thank in particular our key event sponsors The Peter Bennett Foundation as well as Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management and Linklaters.
“Can You See Me Now?” video
We worked with ThinkYoung/ THY LAB to produce and show a video – Can You See Me Now? – to mark our 10th anniversary and to capture how PathFinders works with clients to ensure that their children are visible and afforded the respect, protection and fair treatment that every child born in Hong Kong deserves.
We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it!
