This project responds to the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child and promotes public awareness of the needs of children all over the world.
Taking place in schools, this project involves the subjects of literature, civics, and the arts. Its core is the reading of translated novels about the plight of children all over the world, and by means of drama activities and service learning, this project aims to expand the horizons of Hong Kong adolescents and to cultivate in them empathy for others. It is hoped that through these deep learning experiences, students will become enlightened, compassionate, and responsible global citizens.
