Hong Kong-based non-governmental group KELY Support Group provides a positive environment for young people to interact and learn to support one another.

Established in 1991, this is the fifth year that KELY has participated at the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens in partnership with the Hong Kong Rugby Union (HKRU).

KELY’s programs fall under three categories: peer support, leadership development, and mentorship.

And at the Hong Rugby Sevens, KELY raised awareness about alcohol and drugs, set up a face-painting booth, an electronic powered game as well as a shelter for any youth who might be experiencing some health difficulties during the three-day event.

Throughout the year, KELY works with three major groups in the city: Chinese speaking youths from low socio economic backgrounds, non-Chinese speaking youth from various socio-economic backgrounds, and ethnic minority youths from low socio economic backgrounds.
