Reimagining coffee grounds to support the autistics Often time, the desire of people with autism to pursue a meaningful career is not understood or catered for. Grounds to Crops is a new social innovation project by AnAn International Education Foundation, hoping to connect the value we can uncover from coffee grounds with this need.
Our oceans are the home for countless unique yet diverse species. These mesmerizing organisms form a massive and complicated web of life, each having their own role to play while relying on each other, maintaining the balance of the eco-system. Hong Kong, being merely a tiny dot in the world map, is blessed to have our waters filled with a rich biodiversity.
Viva is passionate about releasing children from poverty and abuse worldwide by growing locally-led networks who are committed to working together to ensure that children are safe, well and able to fulfill their God-given potential. We invite runners to run for children such as 15 year old Leli who in hopes of escaping poverty, traveled to the city and was introduced to a man who claimed to have a job opportunity. He purchased her for a mere $100 and made her sleep with many men. It was only when she was introduced to a local church that she received medical help and counselling. CarNet, Viva's partner network in Nepal works towards tackling the root of trafficking so that children like Leli will no longer face the horror and degradation of sex trafficking. CarNet brings together 500 churches to draw on the power of volunteers to keep children safe. The network helps get children back to school, provide after-school clubs, equip single mothers to set up small businesses, and increase the awareness of trafficking to families. By running and fundraising for us, you can help us reach more children who are vulnerable to being trafficked.
SPS Charity Walk 2018 is our annual featured event which will be held on Saturday, 3 March 2018. The kick off ceremony will take place in Tai Tam Scout Centre. Walkers can enjoy the picturesque and scenic view along reservoirs in Tai Tam Country Park. It's perfect for participants in all ages. All funds raised from the event (after deducting the expenditure) will be used to sustain and expand SPS's suicide prevention services. Please take a step with us to save lives!
From the operation of the park to public transportation, there are all sorts of things within the community that require collective power to succeed. If we do not speak out for the people and happenings that surround us, we shall not expect the problems to be solved automatically by others. Starting from the community, we hope Community Post Project will help rebuilding democracy in Hong Kong. With your support, we will be able to go further.
