“We need a break”
In the recent study by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Hong Kong has ranked second among 76 countries and territories in the world in school performance. The “world top” behind the scene is the kids facing dozens of homework every day, and endless tutorial sessions after school.
Against this background, EDiversity was founded by a group of Hong Kong parents who are concerned about the education available to children in the territory to spark a rethink about education, and help their child to grow and learn healthily for their futures. Recently, EDiversity launches a series of activities under the theme “We Need a Break”. The theme well matches the activities delivered by Ho Ho Go. We therefore offered to sponsor free participation in our activity to the award winners of the “We Need a Break” Facebook Video Campaign. I was not very confident in the proposal in the first place. To most of Hong Kong people, a break or vacation = overseas trips, or sleeping at home if stay in Hong Kong. (Handicraft workshop＋Walking Tour)X stay in Hong Kong≠a break or vacation.
to express our feels and thought with art and creation;
to savor every little thing around the corner that we have missed;
to have fun with family
that’s what a break/vacation are for…
I tried to convince my friend, who is one of the founders of the EDiversity. Grateful for her patience and effort, the organizing committee has accepted us as one of the sponsors.
