Project Supervisor, Caritas Hong Kong
Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region
Ting Yan “Bonnie” Cheung is a project supervisor at Caritas Hong Kong, where she works to bridge the opportunity gap of students from low-income families. In this role, Bonnie oversees the Jockey Club Healthy Neighbourhood Kitchen Project, which supports families living in subdivided units by reimagining and co-creating shared cooking, leisure, exercise, and work spaces among neighbors residing in small living spaces. Bonnie’s own experience growing up in Hong Kong inspired her to pursue social and youth development work. Bonnie believes that “the problem is the problem, the person is not the problem” and that many issues can be addressed through a trans-disciplinary, strengths-based approach.
