Needs and our approach

According to the Hong Kong Poverty Situation Report, published in 2012, nearly one in 5 children (age between 0 and 17) in Hong Kong is living in a poor household (defined as a household whose monthly income is less than half of the median income for all households of corresponding size). Even though children can attend government schools for free, the parents lack the educational background and time to help their children tackle the academic demands and also the resources to help them develop their potential. A survey showed that 52% of Hong Kong’s poor children view themselves as “useless”.

 

Our Children Programme in Hong Kong gives children from low-income families the opportunity to reach their potential and break the cycle of inter-generational poverty. We achieve this by providing academic enhancement and character-building classes during non-school hours, either in a centre setting (the HOPE worldwide Centre for Kids in Shek Kip Mei), or in a school setting (the HOPE worldwide Outreach Centre for Kids).
