Living the Community

The Human Safety Net

A global movement of people helping people

Whatever happens in life, no one should be held back from reaching their potential.

The Human Safety Net (THSN) is a global movement of people helping people. Its mission is to unlock the potential of people living in vulnerable circumstances, so that they can transform the lives of their families and communities. The Human Safety Net programs support families with young children and integrate refugees through work. To do so, it brings together the strengths of non-profit organizations and the private sector, in Europe, Asia and South America.

The engine of The Human Safety Net is a foundation initiated by Generali Group. It extends Generali’s purpose of ‘enabling people to shape a safer future by caring for their lives and dreams’ to the most vulnerable in our society. Generali is mobilizing their people and resources – financial support, time, skills, networks, assets, products - to reach more people and amplify our impact.

Partnership with OneSky for all children in Hong Kong

We believe that parents have the greatest impact on their children’s development. That is why The Human Safety Net for Families program supports parents in vulnerable circumstances by investing in parenting courses and centres.

In Hong Kong, we have partnered with OneSky for all children to educate communities and caregivers on OneSky’s responsive care approach, which has been proven to have a positive impact on children’s development, especially in their formative years.

In addition, through a state-of-the-art Family Centre in Sham Shui Po, OneSky provides children, ages 0 – 6, an opportunity and space to play and grow. Through play, children are able to develop their physical, cognitive, and social-emotional skills.

Through this partnership, we hope that all children can grow in a loving and caring environment, with equal opportunities to maximize their full potential.

Program/ Activities

OneSky Gala

Thanks to generous sponsors and supporters, OneSky raised over HKD 5 million in support of their programs to serve vulnerable children, families, and communities. Our employees assisted OneSky in the organization of the silent auction and is proud to be part of this event.

Fundraiser for Air Conditioning Units

Upon learning that the air conditioning units at the OneSky Family Centre has broken down, we launched a fundraiser with a target of HKD 10,000 to purchase 3 new sets of air conditioning units to ensure families can learn and play at the Centre in comfort. Thanks to generous donations from our staff, we exceeded our target and raised a total of HKD 13,318!

Fundraising Challenge

As part of The Human Safety Net (THSN) Global Fundraising Challenge, we have set ourselves a challenge to burn the most calories in order to raise funds for the community cafeteria of our NGO partner, OneSky. This is expected to benefit 3,000 vulnerable families.
