Robert Ho's career was devoted to journalism and to the management of the family's business interests. Since retiring, he has focused his attention on philanthropy through the foundations he set up (the Ho Family Foundation and the Tung Lin Kok Yuen Canada Foundation) and through personal gifts. Ho follows in the footsteps of his grandmother, Lady Clara Ho Tung, who was a devout Buddhist dedicated to an array of both religious and charitable activities. In 1935, she established the Tung Lin Kok Yuen, which served as both a Buddhist school and a venue for Buddhist practice and which was the first Buddhist school for girls constructed in Hong Kong. In 1994, Ho perpetuated his grandparents' legacy, in particular his grandmother's, by establishing the Tung Lin Kok Yuen Canada Society, and, in 2005, he founded the Tung Lin Kok Yuen Canada Foundation to endow chairs and research programs in Buddhist studies. Ho is realizing his grandmother's aspiration to promote Buddhist education internationally.
