Susanna Lee, formerly OneSky’s Hong Kong Director of Development, has been promoted to Executive Director of the P.C. Lee OneSky Global Centre for Early Childhood Development.
Having grown up in Sham Shui Po, Susanna knows, like many children living today in the center’s neighborhood, that space to play is minimal and childcare options extremely limited.
In her new role, she’ll be working with the Hong Kong government, NGO partners, and funders to grow the center’s reach and to serve vulnerable local children and families.
As a training organization, OneSky established the center to grow the capacity and quality of early childcare in Hong Kong and across Asia. The center also provides training to professional caregivers and parents.
OneSky was founded in 1998 in China to provide nurturing care and early education to abandoned children in China’s welfare institutions.
The organization now serves left-behind children in China’s rural villages, the children of migrant workers in Vietnam’s industrial zones, and children living in ger districts in the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar. The P. C. Lee OneSky Global Centre for Early Childhood Development was opened in May last year.
OneSky CEO Morgan Lance said: OneSky CEO Morgan Lance said: “Susanna has a wealth of experience working for NGO in Hong Kong, coupled with a natural passion for this work in a part of Hong Kong that she knows so well. I am delighted that Susanna has taken on this new role – giving back to the Sham Shui Po community where she grew up and helping OneSky grow the capacity and quality of early childhood education in Hong Kong.”
Susanna added: “I am so proud to accept this role and to represent OneSky. The decision to open in the midst of the pandemic was a brave one but the issues of childcare, space to play and child development have never been more current. We must never forget that Hong Kong’s children are Hong Kong’s future.”
