Light Home, Light Housing, Light Village and Light Factory
Social Housing Enterprise
Light Be, established in 2010, has adopted a brand-new model of development, being the first Social Housing Enterprise in Hong Kong. Ricky Yu, the Founder and CEO of Light Be, has resigned from his post in corporate management to establish Light Be, and has since on different projects gained the support of Social Ventures Hong Kong, Lee Hysan Foundation and Chow Tai Fook Charity Foundation. Light Be has continuously proposed new perspectives and alternative solutions to housing problems and the youth’s upward mobility. Housing projects by Light Be can be found in all 18 districts of Hong Kong. Light Be manages the entire process from contacting landlords to providing training for beneficiary households and has accumulated a decade’s worth of experience in Social Housing and Upward Social Mobility management.
Product and Service
It was small action of common people making Light Home to come true.
In 2013, Light Be successfully launched Light Home, started to rent apartments from landlords and then subleased them to the less privileged at affordable rent. Through experience, Light Be has developed an Empowerment Housing model.
