Restoring the natural beauty of Hong Kong’s beaches, Beach Cleanup hopes to inspire all to eliminate single-use plastic from our waste stream in our daily lives. Furthermore, through raising awareness of marine wildlife and sustainable living, Beach Cleanup's ultimate goal is to construct a positive systemic change.
Speak out (ELCHK) has linked up with families in a public housing estate in Chai Wan whose median monthly income is under HK$13,000. CIS students volunteer weekly on Saturday mornings either at the school or virtually to improve the students' English speaking abilities, through games and structured lessons. Overall, the aim is to interact with underprivileged children to improve their confidence in speaking.
Creative Art, Creative Mind allows local school students to use art to think creatively while practising their English verbal/writing skills. Through Art and English, they will also be able to learn about humanities and history, subjects that are not emphasized in their school curriculum. By the end of each 6-week-session, students will have created their own comic book/picture book.
