Target: Residents in Lamma Island
A Blessing Journey in Lamma
The project is to establish a collaboration model of "Society, Welfare and Business" to jointly build a cross-sector platform to respond to the needs of residents on the Island. We aim to transform Islanders of different backgrounds into "Social Spots Volunteers" and "Physical and Spiritual Volunteers" through trainings. Assisting in the establishment of social spots, so that the Islanders can get relief from the stressful life, promote physical, mental, social and spiritual health, as well as to establish a network of mutual help among neighbours. The project also cooperates with the University of Hong Kong (HKU) to use the concept of “Time Bank” to establish a need-matching platform to encourage Islanders of different ages and ethnicities to contribute their talents and help establishing a relationship of mutual trust and mutual benefit among Islanders.
Cooperating with HKU "HINCare" and utilize the "Hands in Hands" mobile app to implement "Time Banking" concept to encourage Islanders of different ages and backgrounds to help each other in their daily lives. In order to establish a relationship of mutual assistance and mutual benefit, it is planned that through in-depth trainings, the core volunteers will be able to manage and sustain the operation of the Time Bank.
