March 2014 - Hope of the City Newsletter


Hope of the City recognises that inequality in wealth is creating a significant gap in academic achievement between individuals from affluent backgrounds and those from disadvantaged homes. In striving to support children from low-income families, Hope of the City is providing one hour of English tuition each week to over 95 students in the Sham Shui Po area. Each class has no more than 10 students to allow for personalised feedback. Our teachers are hired through professional language centres and are dedicated to answering questions that school teachers may not be able to address in large classes.

Life Education for Children

We believe children need to be equipped with decision-making skills and character values to thrive in all aspects of their lives. This year, we are sponsoring a FruitArt workshop where children will learn about healthy eating habits and create fun artwork out of fruit. There will also be a 6-week Public Speaking workshop which aims to enhance the children's public presentation skills while building up their confidence.
Support Ethnic Minorities

During a workshop on 9 March, the leaders of Inner City Ministries and OM Hong Kong shared about the struggles faced by ethnic minorities in Hong Kong. Volunteers can help in the following ways:

- Tutoring (4-6pm;Tues/Wed)

Special Education Needs

During 2014, Hope of the City is embarking on a new mission to support low-income families who have children with learning disabilities. In our weekly English courses and home visits, we have discovered multiple children who demonstrate signs of learning disabilities but have never been adequately assessed. Therefore, we are partnering with the Child Development Centre to offer free workshops about early child development. Hope of the City is also working with our donors to sponsor children who need complete medical assessments, counselling and treatments.

Career Day - 5 & 11 June

Hope of the City is currently partnering with United Christian College to organise two Career Day workshops on 5 & 11 June for senior form students. We are seeking professionals from the following areas: marketing, accounting, flight attendants, psychologists, business and any other professions. Volunteer speakers will be asked to share about how they arrived in their current positions and to give testimonies about their jobs. Email us if you are interested in these events.
