Approximately 27 million people are currently enslaved in the human trafficking trade around the world. There are approximately 246 million child labourers worldwide. The concept of human rights is said to have originated some 2,500 years ago in modern-day Iraq. King Cyrus the Great freed slaves, established racial equality and the right to religious choice. With the world and its some of its people suffering from unequal and unfair treatment daily, I strive to do the most I can as a student to raise awareness and bring justice to these issues we deal with today. 121 million children and adolescents have never had the chance to even attend school, or have been forced to drop out,  I have the privilege of getting to go to a good school every day, I should use my ability to make a difference in my local school community, local Hong Kong community and maybe someday globally as well. Amnesty club in CDNIS collaborates with other school clubs such as Habitat for Humanity, Unicef, Orbis, etc., and with some local NGO’s as well, this creates bigger impact in and out of school.

Hong Kong has an ageing population, there are a lot of elderlies in need of our care and help in providing for them in different areas. Sometimes the Hong Kong government don’t prioritize them enough compared to other issues that Hong Kong faces. In 2016 and 2017, during Lunar New Year in both years, I participated in the Elderly Home Visit event at the True Light Home for the Aged where we played games with them and handed them small gifts and talked with them and spend a day with them during the Lunar New Year which is a big thing in Chinese culture and we wanted to show them love and care as they are people who helped build Hong Kong into the world city that it is today. Although an elderly home visit once a year may not bring a large impact to Hong Kong, it gave me an insight on how we neglect the elderlies and how we should respect them instead.

In Amnesty, we have 8 executive members and 2 teacher supervisors, it is definitely a group orientated team and almost everything requires teamwork.

iFolio Post: LO3 – Initiate and Plan CAS experience

January 25, 2018

I initiated my interest in being apart of the Amnesty club years ago, probably in 2014 when one of my friends joined the club and was an executive member and I would always ask him about what the club was about and what they did. Weirdly, I found it quite boring at first, questioning him […]
