- Promote awareness of autism in Hong Kong and the mainland China, and communication between them.
- AnAn Hong Kong will continue to promote the autism industry and hold various activities through each of its autism rehabilitation centres in Jinan, Taizhou and Fuzhou. In order to implement the above activities, AnAn Hong Kong is planning the following fund-raising programme in 2012-13:
- Participate in a series of art piece and heritage auctions held in Hong Kong or the mainland China starting from December 2012; encourage Chinese painters and calligraphers such as Mr Ma Jun, Mr Zhang Zong-biao and others to donate art pieces for auctions or for sale. Identify and encourage related parties to donate heritage or art pieces for auction will be AnAn’s future direction for fundraising
- Look for donors and sponsors for specific projects such as the “Blue Dot Fund”. The activity will be initiated in January 2013.
- Encourage individuals who support AnAn Hong Kong’s purpose and objectives to donate. The founders and volunteers pay for their own activity and service fees (including the provision of the Hong Kong office and related administrative costs). This is also one of our major features ie prior to our formal foundation and in the foreseeable future all the costs can be minimized whilst at the same time the quality of our activities would not be adversely affected.
