Raise Yourself To Help Mankind







Background
RYTHM Foundation came into being with the objective of encouraging everybody to Raise Yourself to Help Mankind. It is the primary mission of the QI group of companies and the concept of RYTHM is ingrained into the very fabric of our organization. RYTHM Foundation is the manifestation of the QI group's corporate spirit and also embodies its formal Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) functions.


Aim
The aim of the RYTHM Foundation (RF) is to reach out and touch as many lives as possible by supporting worthy individuals and causes around the world. Those which live up to the spirit of "RYTHM" and who have in some way dedicated their life to the common good are eligible to receive assistance from RF.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) goes beyond philanthropy at QI Ltd. It is a commitment that we make in different parts of the world, contributing to the sustainable economic development of local communities and helping to improve the quality of life.
RYTHM (Raise Yourself To Help Mankind) is the driving force behind QI Ltd and has given birth to RYTHM Foundation, the CSR arm of our growing organisation. The aim of the RYTHM Foundation (RF) is to reach out and touch as many lives as possible by supporting worthy individuals and causes around the world.
The Foundation has helped change innumerable lives around the world since its inception. RYTHM Foundation works with a diverse mix of partners - governments, charity foundations, the private sector, and non-profit organisations - to increase the momentum, scale, and sustainability of change. Whenever possible, the Foundation acts as a catalyst between the partners and the underprivileged.
In appreciation of the outstanding work undertaken by the RYTHM Foundation, the Hong Kong Council of Social Services (HKCSS) recently awarded its third straight Caring Company Logo to QI Ltd. The Caring Company Logo is awarded each year to companies in Hong Kong that undertake initiatives that demonstrate good corporate citizenship.
