The Birth of Project Melo

Melo is the most precious pearl in the world. We believe our new generation is the most precious, especially in their roles for the Pearl of the Orient – Hong Kong.

Our four Co-Founders, each coming from a different background, started with the belief that the next generation should not feel marginalized. They are the most exciting generation. There should be and can be a much more impactful and creative program for youth empowerment.

The Melo Way

Four values we try to instill


Being open minded to multi faceted views and ready to adapt to an ever changing world


Standing strong in face of adversity - with grit and positivity


Challenging status quo and breaking new grounds


Being humble enough to keep learning and treating everyone with respect
