Since the outbreak of the epidemic last year, classes have been suspended for more than a year and YWCA has been assisting children to learn without school, while maintaining social distance. Recently, Tseung Kwan O Integrated Social Service Centre held an online market that broke fresh ground. By equipping children volunteers with different skills, they became tutors in "K POWER Children's Creative Market". The trainings enhanced participants’ C.A.R.E elements, i.e. Creativity, Adversity quotient, Relationship and Empathy.
14 volunteers joined the programme, sponsored by the Home Affairs Department, last October and received trainings. They then led the preparation of the "K POWER Children's Creative Market", and on event day in early January this year, emceed the show, showcased their talent and taught audience in different DIY workshops through video conference.
The audience was children who stayed at home watching the live broadcast. They learnt how to make toys such as moving dolls and kaleidoscopes. Some parents enjoyed spending time with their kids by watching the "little tutors" doing magic, juggling and playing musical instruments.
