創辦人心聲

腦之家為一間非牟利慈善機構,於 1998 年成立。

腦之家一向致力為本地及內地貧困兒童推行不同的教育計劃,以知識改變命運。就像我們的口號: “將最好的給予最重要的人” ! 意思就是將最好的學習資源給予我們的孩子,社會的下一代! 所以,腦之家為香港低收入家庭兒童舉辦一系的活動,例如:開腦班(啟發腦部潛能工作坊), 學習營, 亦會參與慈善義賣,及社會大型服務活動等。 而在內地以偏遠農村留守兒童為服務對象,並在學校設立啟慧英語學習角,舉辦愛心交流團,讓兩地義工服務留守兒童, 互相交流,並體驗人生等; 我們更會協助偏遠農村地區,重建一些破舊的學校,並加入多元智能學習元素及定期舉辦交流團,讓學校都能獲得持續的支持。腦之家也經常舉辦大型慈善音樂會, 傳達愛的訊息。除了為本機構籌得更多善款外, 也讓小朋友有發揮才能的機會及平台,並以歌聲及舞蹈去回饋社會。

我們也經常與商界合作,為良心機構提名商界展關懷,提昇其正面慈善形象。

Message of Founder

One of my favorite Chinese sayings is 飲水思源 , which means when we drink water we must remember from where the water came.  And this is the spirit behind which I founded House of Learning:  we must remember the person we are today because many have helped us along the way, and so likewise we need to help those who are less fortunate than us.

Another spirit is to provide the best possible learning and education experiences to those who are underprivileged.  Being born poor does not mean being not able to learn.   Being born poor does not mean they should be deprived of great learning experiences.  Throughout the years, we have been providing enriched learning experiences to the underprivileged and underachievers, and we found when children are exposed to these experiences, the lights inside them get turned on and they would glow in self confidence, in social skills, in academic improvement.

I would also like to extend my appreciation to Dr Alan Cheung and his great team in carrying out the vision and mission of House of Learning.   They are the pillars that keep the organization going!

My deepest appreciation also to all the volunteers, the sponsoring and collaborating organizations for their support.  Together we definitely have made a tremendous difference in the lives of many children.

And may we continue to make a difference in the lives of our biggest investment: the children!

Dr Caroline Kwok
Founder, President
