Music belongs to everyone. Nowadays in Hong Kong, schools also require each student to learn at least one musical instrument. However, music lessons and instruments are quite expensive, learning music is therefore a luxury for underprivileged children. This project aims to tackle this social issue, engage different stakeholders and public to help, and let underprivileged children who love music, have a chance to taste the joy of playing music, attend affordable music classes and possess their own musical instruments.
I am a 17-year-old student from Hong Kong. Last year, I volunteered at the community service of Society for Community Organization (SoCO) and had the chance to learn about the housing problem in Hong Kong. Seeing subdivided flats and encountering the shocking conditions, where 200,000 people lived in, was an unforgettable experience. Above all, I remembered the heat and humidity of the dwellings, and found out they count on SoCO to donate fans to them every year. I decided this year to contribute by setting up a crowdfunding site to raise money for the fans, and above all raise awareness for their plight.
