HKYWCA organised seminars to share the result of “Build Your Dream” programme

The Association’s Family Wellness Centre organised a seminar to share the experience of the HKYWCA Jockey Club Build Your Dream Programme and was pleased to have Ms. Jasmine Chung, the Senior Charities Manager of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust to be the officiating guest. Despite the prevalent influenza, many school principals, teachers, social workers and parents joined the seminar.

The event consisted of three fruitful seminars. Ms. Wong Wing Sze, the Association’s social worker introduced “Build Your Dream” programme and shared the experience in the first seminar. Then, Dr. Yeung Wai Keung Jerf, Assistant Professor of the Department of Applied Social Sciences, the City University of Hong Kong talked about the research results. At last, participating schools principals, tutors and parents were invited to a sharing session. They expressed their positive feedbacks towards the programme. 

The other two seminars were conducted by Ms. Wong Ka Man, the CEO of Dreamstarter, about building a hopeful future for the children, and Ms. Akina Sze, Senior Training Officer from the Family Wellness Centre, sharing the skills to help kids to realise their ambitions. The speakers pointed out that there are multiple options in career development, and it is fine as long as the kids are kind-hearted and empathetic. They also encouraged teachers and parents to nurture the kids by giving them abundant opportunities and support outside academic. 

“Build the Dream” education kit and research report were given to the participants as reference. They also received Innovative Fai Chun that introduced different job natures and remind participants to be supportive to their children. 

The Association launched the HKYWCA Jockey Club Build Your Dream Programme during 2014-2017, with the support from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. The programme aimed at helping the needy children to build confidence and explore their dreams. It provided courses, activities like camping, work inspection, talks and counselling for parents, short trips in Hong Kong and to the mainland China, mural painting, etc. It served 380 families who lived in Tung Chung and Sham Shui Po and helped to promote dream building in the past three years. The programme has come to an end and we hope that it has given vitality and hope to the next generation.
