"Beauty for a Better Life" is being rolled out in almost 20 countries worldwide: from Latin America to Asia, throughout Europe and the Middle East. More than 1,000 people in extremely vulnerable social or economic situations have benefitted from "Beauty for a Better Life".
At L'Oréal Hong Kong, we have invited the Hong Chi Association (a prominent local NGO whose mission is to raise the employment rate among the mentally disabled through vocational courses, who has been helping the mentally disabled and their families since 1965) as our partner in the program.
In 2013, we established a training salon in the Hong Chi Pinehill Integrated Vocational Training Centre in order to provide vocational training for people with intellectual disabilities (PIDs) and prepare them for open employment. Together, L'Oréal Hong Kong and Hong Chi are striving to train some 50 students a year.
