Dreams Come True – Excel Your Potential Closing Gala
The closing gala of the Area 7 project was held at Youth Square on 10 May 2014. This year we collaborated with 4 NGOs: Youth Outreach, Hong Kong Society of Rehabilitation, Hong Kong Rehabilitation Power and Home Care For Girls. This project was led by Rotary Club of Peninsula and the co-organizing Rotary Clubs were Rotary Club of Tsim Sha Tsui, Rotary Club of Kingspark Hong Kong, Rotary Club of Kowloon North, Rotary Club of Kowloon Golden Mile, Rotary Club of Peninsula South and Rotary Club of Soho.
The closing gala started at 8:00pm. We are pleased to have the Secretary of Food and Health Dr. Ko Wing Man to have been our guest of honour. It let our candidates show what they have learned in the last few months, with their tuition paid by our sponsorship money.
Some candidates shared their feeling about being helped by us, such as Lai Hoi Wing; he is a man with mucopolysaccaridosis and severe handicap, but he managed to graduate his master degree, and his dream
was to publish his book about the writing of a local author. We helped him to publish the book and he donated his book to some local universities as a reference book in the library.
Most of our candidates became more confident and the Rotarians involved were engaged with the project and helped them a lot.
Through this project, all Rotarians, helpers and participants involved fulfilled this year’s RI Theme “Engage Rotary, Change Life”. I would like to give thanks again to all who made contribution to this meaningful project..
