Message of Founder

Greetings!

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.

Alan Cheung,

Chair, House of Learning

「飲水思源」:我們需要記得我們之所以能成為今日的我們是因為曾有很多人一直在幫我們

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
