據統計,香港現時約有174,800位視障人士,約佔香港總人數的2.4%,其中29歲或以下的視障人士則有4,400位,這些視障朋友因視力欠佳,難以像健視朋友一樣,隨意約同三五知己嘗試新玩意,或到陌生環境遊玩消閒,形成生活上的限制。有見及此,三位科大侍學行的社群服務參與大使(Connect ACE)與香港盲人輔導會視障人士家庭資源中心合辦「一視同行」計劃,機構現招募科大同學擔任義工,帶領視障人士進行藝術體驗、戶外參觀及烹飪活動,讓視障人士與義工一同體驗新事物,並增加彼此認識,促進傷健共融。


The challenges faced by visually impaired people (VIP) in their everyday lives are not well understood. But we can imagine how difficult it is when they want to explore different kinds of activities or a new environment without a sighted friend or volunteer being their companion. This may hinder their social life and affect their confidence. In view of this, 3 Connect ACEs partner with The Hong Kong Society for the Blind Parents Resource Centre for the Visually Impaired Children to launch a service project called “Visualizing Vision”, aiming to provide opportunities to the VIPs to experience various types of activities, including an outdoor visit, an art jamming and a cooking workshop. By participating in various interactive workshops, this project aims to facilitate integration, develop interests, and provide them with care and sense of accomplishment. We are currently recruiting volunteers to help with the execution of the activities and interact with the visually impaired people to understand more about their needs.
