About Us 子午社简介

Founded in 2005 as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee, The Meridian Society was granted charitable status in 2006. We have a board of trustees responsible for the day-to-day running of our organisation, but we depend largely on the voluntary work of students, professionals, friends and community centres. In order to develop and sustain our programme of activities, we hope you will support us through membership subscription, donations and/or sponsorship.


Our Aims 子午社的宗旨
