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....
WHAT WE LEARNT
This year we learnt about poverty. Poverty is...
WHY WE CARE
The Genie Index indicates that in Hong Kong we have one of the greatest disparities between the rich and poor in the world.
Poverty is complex and we learnt that it is not simply about giving money and handouts. One solution to poverty is through relationship. Recognising people as people. Giving them opportunities to exercise their independence to make choices and earn a living.

Help us get the word out and inform more people about the complexity of poverty and help us put compassion into action!
YWAM TUEN MUN
JEMS Character Academy has partnered with the charity, Youth With A Mission Tuen Mun, 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 those living in poverty. This charity's mission is to proclaim hope and provide comfort to all by providing holistic care to the needy and using relevant, creative tools to speak to this generation.
OUR FUNDRAISING GOAL
We want to raise $15,000 HKD to help the families in Tuen Mun who are struggling against the cycle of poverty. We want to support YWAM Tuen Mun to continue to build and develop relationships with these families so that their children do not have to continue to live in poverty.
