On 21st July 2018, our employees acted as volunteers to accompany the local schoolchildren to visit Lantau Island. The one-day tour was arranged by Heep Hong Society(協康會). Our volunteers were separated into 4 teams and each one of them have accompanied one schoolchild during the tour.
In the morning, our volunteers arrived the center for a Briefing and Tips and Advice during the tour. After that, each volunteer has met and got to know more about the assigned schoolchildren. They have visited many destinations in Lantau Island such as Ngong Ping 360, The Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery and Tai O Stilt Houses. The schoolchildren could understand more about spiritual and scenic attractions and arouse their interests in different cultures through various famous destinations in Hong Kong. The children and our volunteers enjoyed and cherished the time together.
Through this volunteer work, our volunteers had a good time spending with the children and understand about children’s needs in the society nowadays. This experience was very valuable especially to some of our volunteers who did not have the experience of parenting.
