Ease Education Limited (EEL) is partnering with the Indonesian Muslim Association of Hong Kong (IMAH) to implement their Child Development Project in the areas of Tsuen Wan, Kwai Chung, and Tsing Yi by empowering life-long learning through a Design Thinking Program tackling issues faced by communities.
Sometimes, all we need is a push in the right direction.
Imagine how parents feel when their children succeed, be it in academics, sports, or other fields. However, even in Hong Kong, known as Asia’s world city, some families require assistance to break free from the cycle of inter-generational poverty.
As a former teacher, I was determined to provide my students with opportunities beyond the confines of the classroom. Through the initiation of the Child Development Fund project, we empowered two batches of students to explore their potential. Remarkably, some of them have not only become mentors but also professionals who are making a positive impact on others’ lives.

CDF requires an amount of $4800 per Student to match their Targeted Savings. The matching donations will go towards actualizing their PDP that mentees are now drafting with the assistance of their mentors. PDPs will be implemented starting in 2024 April. All matching donations are deposited to a dedicated account managed under the guidance of the CDF staff of the Social Welfare Department (SWD) with yearly audited reports submitted.
