Committed volunteer family on Lamma

Kelvin Wong has lived with his family of five on Lamma Island ever since his first child, now in secondary school, was born. His youngest child is now in kindergarten.

Kelvin and his wife are dedicated volunteers for HAC. Kelvin enjoys construction work, when there was the need for a large construction for a Halloween celebration he was quick to volunteer to arrange the buying and cutting of the wood needed for the event. The accumulated services hours of the family last year was 532.

Shining Stars Project Award Ceremony

On 24 June 2017, 50 tutors, parents and their children who joined the Shining Stars Project, participated in the award ceremony held in The Clearwater Bay Golf & Country Club (project sponsor). 90% of the children members showed significant improvement both in academic result and self-confidence. This project also attracted a media interview from Ming Pao daily newspaper and Radio Television Hong Kong. This coverage also resulted in new volunteers joining HAC to help needy children. In the new academic year, the programme will start again to help children from grass roots families. For enquiries, please call telephone no.: 23298056.

Little Change Makers Community Exhibitions

A series of Little Change Makers community exhibitions was successfully held in June 2017. Participating children and parents learnt the concept of recycling in the process. In the second half of the year, Little Change Makers will go for green excursions, and share green stories. One step at a time, this can bring positive change to your community.

Ocean Rescue Team

25 volunteers from Champion REIT visited Storyland on 8 July 2017 to deliver the storytelling activity called "Ocean Rescue Team”. They performed a creative drama to share eco-friendly concepts. Interesting games and crafts were prepared to educate children on environmental protection. Related story books were donated to Storyland for other children members to borrow.
