B. Carol Singing Festival 2013

It will be scheduled on 15 December, 2013 (Sunday) from 12 noon to 6 p.m. at East Point City 東港城 at Tseung Kwan O in order to support Child Development Matching Fund (“CDMF”).

The Child Development Fund is a poverty relief policy introduced by the Hong Kong Government following a recommendation of the former Commission on Poverty in 2008.

Child Development Matching Fund (CDMF)

–  Provide personal development opportunities for youths coming from disadvantaged families.

Encouraging youth to build up their “financial” and “non-financial” assets so as to help them fight poverty effectively and to cultivate a positive outlook in life.

In order to tackle the inter-generational poverty issue and match the HK$200 monthly personal savings of the financially deprived youth:

–  The Festival requires every Singing member to contribute HK$200 to sing. The HK$200 represents the monthly personal savings of one child coming from a deprived family.

–  Each choir member was encouraged to donate HK$200 or donation is to be made by their partnering Rotary clubs or by other CDMF supporters.

Target:

To enroll 1,000 Singers from our Rotary Family including Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors, Rotary Adopt A School students, Rotary supporters to sing from 12 noon to 6 p.m. on 15 December, 2013 (Sunday) at East Point City.
