Harmony between Nature, People and Business
(THF) is a Hong Kong based non-profit charity
organization, also a registered environmental protection charity in Timor-Leste. The earth’s natural environments are at risk and humanity’s lust for natural resources has driven biodiversity to the brink. Poverty is one of the most destructive forces against nature, especially in developing countries. THF believes that through developing naturally sustainable green products that are community-based, we can add economic value to unspoiled nature.
