The Caravel Foundation
The Caravel Foundation is a private, Hong Kong registered charity focusing on improving the education and well-being of underprivileged children primarily in Hong Kong, India, and China. We seek to provide education and opportunities to disadvantaged young people, equipping them to become productive and successful citizens of tomorrow. Some of our charitable partners and initiatives include:
City University of Hong Kong
We are a long-term partner with the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and take part in many events and engagements aimed to develop the next generation of leaders for a brighter future. Our support extends to the Indra & Harry Banga Gallery. As a showcase for CityU, the gallery focuses on wide-ranging themes that bridge the arts and sciences and connect Western and Asian art; drawing on the strengths of the university to stage technologically innovative presentations that engage directly with the viewer.
The Caravel Foundation endows scholarship funds providing sustainable financial aid for deserving students. Currently, the Caravel Foundation has Caravel Scholarship Funds and Caravel Scholars at three of the most respected higher education institutions in the United States – Dartmouth College, Duke University and Princeton University. These are the alma maters of the Banga family.
Cricket Hong Kong
We support Cricket Hong Kong (CHK) and their mission to make cricket accessible to children and youth in Hong Kong. Our partnership encompasses a Youth Pathway Program and Cricket Hong Kong’s School Cricket Initiative. The Youth Pathway Programme’s objective is to develop a constant stream of local, representative, and international cricketers through an aligned and consistent skill development pathway. Meanwhile the Cricket in Schools initiative aims to engage more local primary schools in Hong Kong and give them the opportunity to see and experience cricket and play matches in playgrounds between different schools.
Integrated Brilliant Education
We are a proud sponsor of Integrated Brilliant Education (IBEL), a non-profit organization that aims to educate and empower underprivileged, non-Chinese speaking children in Hong Kong. A network of education centres provides educational support with a special focus on Chinese language proficiency and life skills development to help these children secure a better future. Mrs. Indra Banga, a member of the Board of Directors of The Caravel Group and co-founder and member of the Board of Directors of The Caravel Foundation, serves as Patron to IBEL.
