Go with the Wheel 無礙 友愛 Join this to move forward a UN Sustainable Development Goal

The following message in Chinese is about a service opportunity which requires participants to be proficient in Cantonese.

The "Go with the Wheel" project is initiated by one of the teams of the Connect ACE (Ambassador for Community Engagement) 2016/17 with an aim to address genuine community needs, at the same time to motivate and lead fellow students to serve the wider community.

In the eyes of the public, what a physically challenged person needs is a barrier-free community that can allow him or her to travel conveniently to get in touch with the neighborhood. However, what they need is not only the facilities support but also the social support which HKUST students could help with. By collaborating with the Hong Kong Federation of Handicapped Youth (HKFHY), which has the longest history in serving the physically handicapped community to help the disabled to fully integrate, participate and contribute to society, volunteers are hoping to facilitate the cross-generation communication and understanding through interacting and sharing the current popular social media topics among HKUSTers with the physically challenged adults.  Also, through holding the exhibition, volunteers could help raise the awareness of the needs of this group and avoid stereotyping them by educating fellow HKUSTers by various promotional activities.

大眾一般認為傷殘人士的需要不外乎一個無障礙的社區,好讓他們可以暢通無助地跟鄰舍互動。但除了設施的配合以外,人們的關愛同樣重要。有見及此,四位社群服務參與大使(Connect ACE) 與香港傷殘青年協會合作籌辦「無礙‧友愛」服務計劃。香港傷殘青年協會是本港主要服務肢體殘障社群歷史最悠久的組織,透過不同種類的服務協助殘疾人士全面融入、參與及回饋社會。
