Thrive Hong Kong Ambassadors: Why did we come back to help? l 為何Thrive Hong Kong 的學生大使回來幫忙？
THE STORY OF THRIVE HONG KONG
Thrive Hong Kong Charitable Limited (IR Ref.: 91/16799), a Hong Kong registered children and youth education charity. We envision to turn under-resourced children and youth into self-confident and positive future leaders who are motivated to give back to the Hong Kong society. It was co-founded by Ms. Polly Chan & Ms. Lilian Sze who had joined hands in setting up and managing 2 former education charities. Together they had empowered 500+ under-resourced children and their families during 2009 to 2017.

It enhances their understanding of themselves, also their communication patterns, which helps them to find out their career paths. The students were engaged in the activity and actively asked questions. Their learning attitude is commendable!

We adopt a motivation-directed learning approach and integrate the concept of life skills* into our development model.
Learning in Thrive Hong Kong is a collaborative process between different stakeholders and we encourage our students to identify and embrace their individual strengths and personal motivations to forge for their future study and career with passion and self-confidence.
*Life skills have been defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life.
