On Thursday 26th of March, a small group of students took part in a live Zoom session with Habitat for Humanity. Habitat Hong Kong is dedicated to raising awareness of the need for decent, affordable housing and harnessing resources to improve living conditions for families across the Asia-Pacific region, including mainland China since 2004. The local programme ‘Project Home Works’ also provides a hand-up to low-income families, the elderly and the disabled in Hong Kong through home repairs by local volunteers (https://habitat.org.hk/).
The students were introduced to how they can make a difference here in Hong Kong and learnt about how KGV is in the process of setting up their very own Habitat for Hong Chapter. This group will be led by a Year 12 student, Ishita Agarwal, and hopes to grow the student group and run projects once we return to school.
It was great to see students still wanting to connect through these challenging times as they recognise there is still good that can be done.
