Kids KOL - Managing Money 理財小達人 Join this to move forward a UN Sustainable Development Goal SDG4SDG4

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

This project is initiated by Connect ACE (Ambassador for Community Engagement) 2017/18 with an aim to address genuine community needs, to motivate and lead fellow students to serve the wider community.

According to the 2016 poverty report, there are 7,000 more Hong Kong people living under the poverty line. The number of people living under the poverty line reaches the highest record in past 8 years. The situation is even severe for children in the low-income family. Almost 1 in 5 children are living in the poverty. Their parent cannot afford the expensive fee for them to attend tutorial class and extra-curricular activities. Due to the insufficient financial support, the children do not have many chances to access to different opportunities and resources. They will have a higher chance to be in the cycle of poverty. Therefore, it is important for children from low-income family to learn the proper money concept and money management. These concepts can help them to get ready for their future.

In view of this, we partner with The Boys' & Girls' Clubs Association of Hong Kong Jockey Club Cheung Hang Children & Youth Integrated Services Centre to launch a service project called 'Kids KOL - Managing Money”. “KOL” means keep on learning. This project aiming to help kids to understand the importance of money management and keep on learning how to use money wisely through varies interactive games and life stimulation.


根據2016年香港貧窮情況報告,生活在貧窮線以下的人數比往年多7,000人。生活在貧窮線以下的人數更超越過往8年的記錄。低收入家庭的兒童情況更為嚴重,每5位兒童當中就有1位生活在貧窮中。因為沉重的經濟負擔,他們的家庭無法支付高昂的教育開支。因此兒童較少向上流的機會,更有可能造成跨代貧窮。即使他們升讀大學,亦可能因為沒有正確理財觀念和知識令他們無法有效儲蓄,甚至需要借貸。

有見及此,四位科大侍學行的社群服務參與大使(Connect ACE)與香港小童群益會賽馬會長亨青少年綜合服務中心合辦「理財小達人」計劃,透過不同的遊戲及互動活動,從而明白理財的重要性及持續學習正確理財的方法。現招募科大同學擔任義工協助活動進行,並與兒童交流增加彼此的認識及改善現況。
