Little Change Makers: Mini Talks cum Workshop

Little Change Makers aims to cultivate children with sense of arts and environment protection. On 24 February 2017, storytellers of HAC went to TWGHS Chan Han Nursery School and shared picture books about a snail and creativity. With the help of staff, children made their own 3D grapes and pen cases with toilet paper rolls.

This is one out of seven workshops to be done in the community. This project is funded by Societe Generale and Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged.

 
 

 

Gathering for Future Change Makers

One hundred children who joined the "Little Change Makers” project went through a series of trainings, visits and practices in the past six months. On 10 Dec 2016, they gathered to share on their valuable experience and continued to spread the "I can do it” idea with the assistance of volunteers from Societe Generale. Children and volunteers brought towels and oatmeal to distribute to the elderly people around Chuk Yuen wet market located in Wong Tai Sin, sharing the festive joy with others.

 
 
 


 


1,500 participants enjoyed the Little Change Makers Fun Day


Little Change Makers Fun Day was held on 13 Nov 2016 (Sunday) at Zero Carbon Building located at Kowloon bay. One hundred children who were trained in the project performed dramas and eco music with the theme of green stories. It attracted 1,500 participants to join. The main theme of the event was: you can colour the world with your own hands, making it a better place to live in.


This project is sponsored by Societe Generale and Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged. Children were encouraged to find out social issues and creative ways to tackle these problems. This project started in June 2016. Over 700 hours of training on visual arts and dramas techniques and watching professional plays was offered to 100 children members. They also visited the landfill area in Tsueng Kwan O, old public housing and the eco park at Tuen Mun. The youngest participant was only four years old.


Woo Chek Fai is a 10-year-old participant who joined the eco music performance session. Chek Fai shared, "I never knew that used bins, glass jars and plastic bottles can make beautiful music. I will think twice in future before throwing away stuff, perhaps it can be used in other ways. I worry about the waste problem in Hong Kong. From now on, I will try to minimise using disposable goods, and will also pack unfinished meals back home to avoid producing more waste.


The officiating guests of the Fun Day included, Ms. Chan Chun Mei, Assistant District Officer, Wong Tai Sin & Sai Kung, Social Welfare Department; Ms. Pian Chow, CSR Ambassador, Societe Generale; Ms. Joanna Hui, Assistant Manager, Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged; Dr. Kate Leung and Mr. Tang Wai Hung, Board Members of HAC, and Ms. May Wong, Executive Director of HAC.


Ms. May Wong said, "This project aimed to use picture books, various arts forms and field trips to help children be more aware of the problems of the society around them. It also showed them it is possible for a young kid to reciprocate to the society. HAC was glad to receive the enormous support from staff of Societe Generale. They helped to raise money for the project via charity bike ride and adopted energy saving measures in their own office. In the upcoming few months, children will bring their artworks to different parts of Hong Kong to continue to share their green message to the public.”

For our next generation, it is the best of times, it is the worst of times!

Globally or locally, people are facing with issues such as pollution, wars and refugees, inequality of resources and polarisation of poverty. What is worse, the children from lower socio-economic backgrounds are deprived of equal opportunities of development. Without prompt support and concern, it is highly likely that they will gain a sense of helplessness and develop a pessimistic perspective towards their own life or the society. This project is jointly sponsored by Societe Generale and Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged. This one-year project launched in June 2016 and will benefit 2,400 children, volunteers and general public.

Highlights of the Project:

The proposed project is aimed to encourage innovation of the target children. Underprivileged children will be empowered to learn various skills, to explore social issues and then take action for a good cause. The following process will take place:

1.Arts Workshops (e.g. drama, music and storytelling) will be taught by professional trainers to develop creativity ofchildren.

2.By community observations, children will explore social issues they feel passionate about. Issues can include: food waste, elderly with poverty, refugees, environment or others.

3.Positive Actions: they will take positive actions by creating their own performance to serve different groups of audience.

4.The Project will provide multifarious opportunities for the sponsor’s volunteers to contribute, so that they can influence the children during the activities.

5.The Green Gala, Exhibitions in Community and Exhibitions cum Workshops in schools or kindergartens can serve the targeted children in selected communities. It can also arouse public awareness of the unlimited potentials of these little change makers.

6.The "Read to Change” Reading Groups will help underprivileged children to understand the Power of Knowledge. With this empowerment, children can design changes to make the society better.
