Help Primary & Secondary School Kids of Hong Kong's Refugees & Asylum Seekers

Description: Volunteers help a small group of primary & secondary school students (aged 6-18 years old) with refugee or asylum backgrounds with their school work.  No special skills or training is needed.  Although the project is ongoing, participation on a one-time basis is also welcome. 
 
Refugees and asylum seekers are a marginalized group in Hong Kong as they are unable to work and gain a decent income to service their basic needs.  They also live in a constant state of insecurity as their asylum status can take up to several years to be verified.  The Chungking Mansions Service Center provides valuable support through services like free meals and non-emergency medical care.


Language: English Speakers & Cantonese speakers who know how to write traditional Chinese
