2014 - 2015 E-round the World
Guangxi Visual Impair Project
During the Christmas holiday, we brought the donated glasses frames collected from previous recycling event to Guangxi and had an optical test for each student at Hezhou Second Secondary school. We finally had optical test for more than 300 students and had prescription glasses for more than 100 students.
Thailand Children’s Home Visit
During Easter holiday, we also went to Baan Unrak Children’s Home. Besides bringing different supplies, including donated bags from Hellolulu for the childrens, we also had different workshops to teach them how to make different art work with recycled papers.
The idea for "E-round the world" was based on environment issues, one of the directions from Centennial Service Challenge by LCI. We then combined this topic with other targets, like teenagers, vision and hunger. We traveled from Hong Kong to Hezhou, Gunagxi and Thailand not only spread the message of being environmentally friendly, but also to help with their own problems. We totally served thousands of people in the project. I am glad that this project was supported by the whole club from organizing, serving together, and travelling to Hezhou and Thailand with me. Finally, we were rewarded with Best Service Project 1st runner up from the Leo District, which encouraged Host Leos to have better services in future.
2014-2015 service project is called “E-round the world”. We had a series of local and overseas services to educate our service targets to protect our environment. It fulfilled the four directions from the Centennial Service Challenge from LCI, which are environment, youth, hunger and vision.
Feeding Hong Kong Bread Run
We collected bread from the bakeries all over Hong Kong. We also helped to re-package the bread for the organizations that helps the poor families in Hong Kong, in order to relief the hunger problem.
Mapopo Farm Visit
We brought a group of kindergarden children from Fanling to Mapopo community farm for them to understand the process of agriculture. It provided an experience for them to harvest vegetables and fruits. They learnt the difficulties of agriculture and how harmful plastic wastes could be. They started to know the importance of treasuring food.
