Established in Hong Kong in May 2001, Partnerships for Community Development (PCD) is a community development organisation that works in mainland China. It was established and continues to be funded by the Kadoorie Foundation (via a stream of funds allocated by the Hon. Mrs McAulay). The Foundation is a Hong Kong-based trust founded in 1970 by the late Sir Horace Kadoorie who believed in the motto: “Help people to help themselves”. In August 2017, PCD set up the Beijing Representative Office which is registered with the Beijing Public Security Bureau, with the Ministry of Environmental Protection (now Ministry of Ecology and Environment) as our Professional Supervisory Unit.
An organisation without any religious or political affiliation, PCD is committed to working with communities to explore ways of leading a dignified and sustainable life in harmony with others and with nature. PCD adopts the approaches of cultural reflection, nurturing community facilitators, and building networks and platforms in its work in the areas of biodiversity conservation, ecological agriculture, nature education, environmental protection, and prevention and control of pollution. The goals are to invigorate the inner motivation of communities, to promote understanding of sustainable living and to encourage individuals and communities to practise living sustainably.
Communities in which people live in harmony with each other and with nature.
PCD works with communities to re-connect people’s hearts with nature and to explore ways to live sustainably.
By sustainable living, we mean that people are aware of their oneness with nature, living simply and in resilient communities. People support each other; they are content, creative and secure.
