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
