Anti-poverty Consumption Voucher Scheme (Signature Project)
In support of the United Nations International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, Rotary Club of Star Avenue held the kick-off ceremony of our Signature Project “國際消除貧困日- 星光共融顯愛心” at Sau Mau Ping Shopping Centre on 16 Oct 2022. Our project is in the form of distribution of consumption vouchers, together with other items in fortune bags, to 400 needy households (amounting to about 1,600 to 2,000 residents) in Sau Mau Ping Estate and Po Tat Estate.
Virtual Vocational Exchange (VVE)
The VVE Programme was carried out from 5 Feb 2023 to 12 Mar 2023 on six consecutive Sunday afternoons together with the Rotary Club of Batu Pahat. Diversified contents include without limitation sharing of eight participants from both Clubs on vocational and cultural topics and talks by guest speakers on documentary production, history of Hong Kong and Macau, tech startup, Cyberport’s role in building an international IT hub.
The career-oriented Mentorship Program was run from Oct 2022 to Mar 2023 for selected Form 5 students of our Interact Club School to have a more in-depth understanding about their preferred careers. The mentors are mainly Rotarians from RCSA. Three large-scale gatherings / talks were held, together with a number of one-on-one meetings of mentors and mentees.
Maternal and Child Health Project
Promoting emotional health of children and physical health of mothers are two of the focuses of our Club. A talk and a stretching exercise session were organised for mothers in Sau Mau Ping and the neighbouring area. About 120 participants attended the activity and had a fun and relaxing time with dancing and stretching.
Mediation Talks and Workshop
To promote peace and to introduce basic concepts and skills in resolving disputes, a mediation talk for two Junioract Club schools and the Interact Club school as well as a mediation workshop, including demonstration and role-play, for the Interact Club school were conducted by experienced lawyers and mediators in Dec 2022 and Feb 2023.
This is a District 3450 health project co-organized by the ten clubs of Area 4. Home visits were arranged from Dec 2022 to Feb 2023 in different districts to conduct a survey on the elders and their carers. The objectives are to identify potential dementia patients and difficulties faced by their carers.
Water Sanitation Project
To minimise the health risks of students while using drinking water faucets and fountains, especially under the influence of COVID-19, the Water Sanitation Project was operated between Nov 2022 and Mar 2023 to sanitise water faucets and fountains with disinfectant for 100 schools, in particular those with relatively less resources. Thanks to our water specialist service partner, professional technicians have helped sanitize the drinking facilities at school. We are planning to make this project a sustainable one.
DEI Scholarship Award
To foster “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” in young people, the DEI Scholarship Award Scheme was launched to award students who have outstanding performance in promoting DEI from Dec 2022 to Mar 2023. Shortlisted students of our two Junioract Club schools and the Interact Club school were interviewed by our Club’s representatives.
The second round of our key Vocational Service Project "Career Expo" was successfully held in Mar 2023. A total of 200 Form 4 and 5 students of YCH Wong Wha San Secondary School (our Interact Club school) and TSK Victoria Government Secondary School participated in the activity. The Expo was well received by the audience and could definitely help students in planning their future.
