MAKE A DIFFERENCE: VISUAL IMPAIRMENT
WHO WE ARE
We are students who attend JEMS Character Academy and we are in the Blue Level. This year, we have been learning to grow in our empathy and compassion for people with visual impairment in our community.
WE CARE BECAUSE...
There are more than 170,000 visually impaired people in Hong Kong; 2000 of them are children under 18 years old.
Even though these people can't see as well as us, they are still part of our community

JEMS Character Academy has partnered with the charity, Ebenezer School, in previous years to teach children to have more empathy and compassion towards those in our community.
We hope that our students can help fundraise money for this charity to help support children with visual impairment. This charity's mission is to help students to overcome the limitations of visual impairment, and to develop their own potentials and talents.
At Ebenezer School, one of the many things that visually impaired students learn is to how to read by using Braille.
Braille is a system of touch reading and writing for blind persons in which raised dots represent the letters of the alphabet.
Trying writing your name in Braille!
