It gives me a great pleasure to introduce House of Learning (HOL). HOL is a non-profit charitable organization and was established in 1998 by Dr. Caroline Kwok, a dedicated educator and an expert in neuro-education. Our mission is to serve the underachieved and underprivileged children by providing research-based effective programs and trainings to help these individuals become future productive citizens in our society. Our core committee has a total of seven professionals. Though our committee members are from diverse educational and professional backgrounds, we are bound together by a common cause: to serve our community. Since its establishment, HOL has conducted numerous charitable and training projects in both Hong Kong and China. Many of these projects were funded by corporations and private donors and supported by countless volunteers. We are indeed grateful for the support of these generous donors and volunteers who have helped us in the past. We continue to look for volunteers and funding to support our cause. If you are interested in joining our cause, be it a donor or a volunteer, please feel free to contact us. Again thanks for visiting our website. Please spend some time to browse other links to find out more about our organization, our committee members and our projects. We hope you will join our cause in the near future.
It’s so fun for children to participate in concerts and perform, and they are able to experience so many things. Thanks House of Learning for creating this platform for our girls to practice courage. Thank you and thank you very much.
The most memorable part of the exchange group was staying at the children’s home for one night. I saw them eating very simple dinner, helping their mother's work, and they were very sensible! I admire it very much, and I also deeply feel the truth that "ordinary is blessing"! I used to ignore my blessings around me, now I have learned to be grateful for everything around me, and I will cherish everything I have in the future!
Before my son learned roller skating,he was so timid, he didn’tndare to try. But since the first lesson, he has become so courageous! As soon as he puts on the skates, he will be so excited and learn to skate with great effort. With careful instruction, he learned how to stop, move forward, and backward. Now his balance is better, and become more confident.
