Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.

Be The Change (BTC) has been serving the Hong Kong community under its society status since 2020. Founded by two compassionate and enthusiastic individuals – Leesha Khemlani and Naresh Gangaramani the organisation has been growing from strength to strength under the helm of President Poonam Mehta. Ably supported by the executive committee, well-wishers and donors.

In 2020 it was registered as charity under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance in Hong Kong.

BTC offers assistance to low-income families in Hong Kong by focusing on ethnic minorities. We offer our support with love, dedication, enthusiasm, compassion, integrity and a spirit of cooperation.

Be The Change over the past 11 years with the help of our core members and supporters have helped those in need to build a better future. Often their work involves teaching students one to one, providing school uniforms and miscellaneous fees, guiding families and individuals with a view of hope and change towards a better life.
Some of our students have enrolled in universities, some are in high school and some are employed in Hong Kong. In addition, we offer extra-curriculum activities to students, visit families and liaise with schools.

Blessing in Giving – J.R. Darsi

Charity means sharing what you have earned lawfully and ethically with others. Charity is praised as one of the greatest virtues in Hindu Dharma.1 If you are helping a charity that is based in the local community you are offering your time and services to the greater good of your community. Doing so helps build a stronger community and a better world!. Charity work is not without benefits to those contributing, there is a blessing in giving. Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. Deuteronomy 15:10.2 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” LK 6: 38.3 In addition to the joy of helping others, some of the money you donate to charity is tax-deductible.
