Part I..Internal Operations Directives
1.0 Introduction
In this age of advanced technology and material civilization, man seems able to live in pleasantness and comfort. However, the hatred, strife, chaos and grudges that exist between races, nations and individuals are destroying the harmony and peace of man, if not triggering off wars, famine, plagues and disasters, man-made or not. The causes for all these can be put down to selfishness, greed, discontent and mutual distrust of his.
@
Seekers of world peace have incessantly been in search of a clue to these problems. Confucianism, put forward by Confucius and Mencius and which has an edifying effect on the conscience and innate abilities of man and which brings out the good in human nature, is exactly the missing piece of the puzzle. It is also a complement of doctrines preached by other religions.
@
1.1 Historical Background
In the 1930's the founder of our Association, Mr Chan Man-wah, a successful businessman in Shanghai, spared no pains promoting Confucianism. People who mended they ways or who brought their self-refinement on a high plane as a result of his influence were legion. In 1951 he came to Hong Kong to spread the thinking of Confucius and Mencuis. His work culminated in the founding in March 1982 of the ShinYat Tong Limited(later re-namedHong Kong ShinYat Tong Moral Association), which is the sum total of one gathering place in the very first place and later its 15-storey building, the Shin Yat Tong Centre, at 8 Mau Lam Street, Kowloon, Hong Kong plus branches throughout the territory and in other countr ies.
@
1.2 Corporate Mission
It is the mission of the Association to propagate Confucianism and the Truth it embraces and to give a modern meaning to the moral it preaches so as to make it easily understandable to everybody and applicable to their everyday life. The charitable work to help the poor and especially the elderly and the young launched by the Association has achieved remarkable success. Apart from offering education gratis or for moderate charges, the Association holds talks, exhibitions, meetings and seminars in addition to setting up libraries and running courses with a view to directly or indirectly providing basic or vocational education to the public. It is the aim of the Association to see its activities carried on worldwide.

@
1.4 Corporate Governance and Measures
A modern and scientific mode of management is introduced to ensure the proper and efficient running of the Association. A check-and-balance mechanism is designed by the Executive to allow supervision by members, to monitor the performance of the Management, to ensure that the allocation of resources meets the criteria laid down by the Association and to prevent the abuse of authority. The mechanism, already devised, put in place and working well, will be subject to review and adjustment from time to time in a bid to achieve efficiency.
@
1.5 Corporate Structure

1.6 Management Staff
The day-to-day running of the above two bodies is the responsibility of paid staff and volunteers, with the latter forming a large portion of the human resources. Everything that needs to be done has to be done in accordance with the instructions, and under the supervision, of the board of directors who are also volunteers. A principle of management of the board is to ensure overall transparency, accountability and systemization so that everybody does what everybody has to do.

Part II ..Public affairs and Development@
2.1 Positioning
The Association positions itself as the provider of moral education to people in their different stages of life, of vocational education in general and of assistance to the elderly to bridge the gap where allocation of resources by the Government is inadequate.
@
2.2 Alignment with Community
After gaining recognition from the community, the Association gathers all sorts of support with the ultimate aim of offering a wide range of services for which the community has a pressing need. By fully making public the reasoning behind its activities to attract feedback and comments from both participants and beneficiaries, the Association is able to come up with better plans for the future using as guidelines the feedback and comments received.
@
2.3 Co-operation with other charitable institutions
The Association seeks to work hand in hand with other charities with the same vision and ideal with a view to sharing the resources of, and bringing out the best in, each other.
@
2.4 Nourishing of children and youth for well-being of community
It is a universal truth that proper upbringing of pre-school children is crucial to their future development, especially in the area of mental development. To this end the Association comes forward with such training and counseling designed to start all the way from childhood to youthhood.
2.5 Hong Kong Development Plans
To anticipate future developments, to attract people sharing the same vision and mission as ours and to ensure growth in a steady and sturdy manner, those directing and running the organization have initiated systematized management, openness and accountability so as to lay a sound and solid foundation for the operations of the Association in Hong Kong. In the offing is a larger home for the elderly, which is expected to provide accommodation and care to 500 inmates, of whom some may be in need of intensive nursing. Negotiations about the project are now underway between the Association and the Government.
@
2.6 Oversea Development Plans
The success of the Hong Kong operations will, in the near future, be an example to be modeled on for expansion overseas.
