Barrier-Free Community Roadmap For Ngau Tau Kok 無礙 ·愛在牛頭角 Join this to move forward a UN Sustainable Development Goal

A historical community of Ngau Tau Kok is need of a more comprehensive development on humanitarian establishment, especially for the disabled people. The lack of accessibility facilities makes their daily life extremely inconvenient and impedes them from participating into the local community activities. In collaboration with Caritas Ngau Tau Kok Community Centre, the Humanities and Social Science Student's Union (HSSU) organises the project to show our care and passion to the disabled community in Ngau Tau Kok. It is hope that through experiencing the difficulties wheelchair users faced in the old community and producing a video regarding their situation, this program can help the disabled community to ensure their interests and live more fruitful lives as well as carrying forward the passion of HKUST students on social work and humanitarian affairs.

殘疾人士和所有市民一樣,應該擁有平等使用公共設施的權利,不過實際情況卻未如理想,早年發展的牛頭角無障礙設施不足,殘疾人士於社區活動困難重重。為回應社區需要及響應科大侍學日,香港科技大學學生會人文及社會科學學院學生會與明愛牛頭角社區中心合作籌辦「無礙 ·愛在牛頭角」計劃,招募科大同學擔任義工,與殘疾人士共同走進牛頭角社區評估無障礙設施及拍攝短片,透過發報會讓公眾人士認識輪椅人士生活上所面對的不方便,同時加深同學對無障礙設施認識,啟發反思。
