a+b=3 was created in Hong Kong in 2005 to help migrant workers overcome their financial challenges, especially over- indebtedness and unsustainable remittances to their families. Very soon, we extended our hands-on programmes to students and low-income families in Cambodia and the Philippines, and factory workers in China. In 2007, Enrich, our “spin-off” sister charity, took over our programmes for migrant workers in Hong Kong, while a+b=3 focused on creating financial education programmes and training trainers, especially through NGOs. In 2012, we launched our first online course. 2014 marks our first training in Africa while we continued training NGO staff in Asia and online. In 2021, a+b=3’s office changed harbour and moved to Marseille, France.
