About Us

Founded in 2004 by a group of young professionals who believed people can make a difference, HandsOn Shanghai is an officially registered non-profit organization with the Shanghai Civil Affair Bureau since 2010.

With our mission is to promote volunteerism, inspire, equip and mobilize people to take action that changes the world, we envision a world in which individuals, students, and corporate leaders are able to discover (and harness) their power to make a difference, participate as volunteers, and participants in the development of healthy, vibrant, and resilient communities.

To accomplish this goal, the HandsOn Shanghai volunteer platform has ben developed to help bridge the divide that exists between individuals who are looking to give back to their community and the organizations that would benefit from the support that volunteers can provide.

Currently we engage more than 500 volunteers each month through more than 120 local service events, more than 50 community partners.

Our projects benefit different vulnerable groups through long term partnerships with more than 50 community partners.
