The social landscape in Hong Kong has changed somewhat and there is a growing number of emerging NGOs supporting children and families in need. Each year, we are presented with an alarmingly large number of requests from the charities we support, for boxes for teenagers, ages 11-15. In 2022, the number exceeded 11,000 and we struggled to satisfy the requirement.
We are aware that many of your students will have grown up supporting Box of Hope through their Pre and Primary school years. Support from teens in Secondary tends to wean off, but we would very much like to extend the opportunity for their involvement, by organising their own campaign to support less fortunate teen peers in the HK community.
Our projects are a great way for your students to continue their support for Box of Hope whilst ticking off one of their CAS projects.
CAS Experiences (short project)
Each year, we find that donations of hygiene items and stationery for teenagers fall short in supply. Through school ‘house’ structures, students could collect specific items, inciting a bit of inter-house competition on total items collected!
Box Quality Checking
Once all boxes have been collected at your school, it would be a huge help to have your students check them to ensure they contain the correct items, and if not, be adjusted appropriately. This operation can be made into a larger project, done in collaboration with your Primary school.
Students can use their own ideas on how to raise money for Box of Hope – be it a bake sale or stall at a school fair, for example.
CAS Major Project
The larger project supports the running the BoH campaign in your school, thus bringing our project to life!
Run an awareness campaign
Create interest in school/community for students and their families to participate:
- Present the campaign through various media to help to promote BoH
- Ensure that students and their families are aware of key dates and deadlines
- Celebrate your involvement, whilst reflecting on your achievement and making recommendations for future development
Run the BoH collection at school
- Be the focus for campaign communication within the school:
- Coordinate the school’s campaign, with support of the BoH team
- Set goals for boxes and items to be collected, sharing progress with your school
Of course students can create their own project in supervision of our CAS coordinator.
