MAKE A DIFFERENCE: HELP PEOPLE IN POVERTY

ORANGE LEVEL | PRIMARY 6 STUDENTS

Campaign by: Amboise, Bernice, Bruce, Darren, David, Ezra, Hin Wang, Jasper, Joshua, Kerry, Nicholas, Tiger, Valerie, and Ying Ying

WHO WE ARE

We are students who attend JEMS Character Academy and we are in the Orange Level. Many of us have been at JEMS for several years and some up to 9 years now.

Many might ask what we learn about here and to give you an idea, we learn about being nice, having empathy, the effects of charity, and being loving. What we focus most about is character and everything that leads up to being a good person (after all, we are called the junior excellent members of society)! Although this might sound boring, our teachers actually make it quite fun!

WHAT WE LEARNT

In the past few months, we've learnt that poverty can look and be defined very differently and my perspective has changed. People living with material wealth may define poverty as a lack of healthcare, income, wealth, food, or other material items. People who are poor may describe poverty as a lack of everything or a broken relationship. We learnt through interviews that people in poverty feel ashamed, worthless, or like they are trash to be thrown out. This explains why it's so hard to get out of poverty. People feel like there is no more hope and no hope to move forward.
