Standard Chartered has renewed funding to Operation Breakthrough, a Hong Kong Police-led volunteer programme that offers sporting opportunities to children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

 The bank will continue sponsorship of Operation Breakthrough Rugby - an expansion of Operation Breakthrough - for another three years, and will provide funds of HK$900,000 for the period 2013 to 2016.

Operation Breakthrough Rugby focuses on leveraging the positive attributes of sports to help youths in the juvenile crime prevention programme turn their lives around. It organises activities such as training clinics, exchange tours and competitive matches to help youths build positivity, self-esteem and confidence.

 "Standard Chartered is proud to renew our sponsorship in support of Operation Breakthrough, a truly unique and effective programme that we believe has made a significant difference in giving youths in this community an opportunity to see how the core values of rugby - teamwork, respect, discipline, enjoyment and sportsmanship - can play a big part in positively changing one's life," said Mike Rees, Group Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Wholesale Banking of Standard Chartered.
