Bored Games with Bored Kids

Poverty & Education

The issue we are addressing is a global one. It is a renowned global fact. Kids around the world don't like learning because it seems boring, and if they are forced to learn, it takes a big toll on their mental health and wellbeing. Therefore we are trying to teach underprivileged kids English, while making it fun, so we might be able to change how to view education.

Poverty 

We found out that underprivileged children in Hong Kong do not have enough support from their families in their studies, and they may have a lack of confidence because their language skills are behind the curve. We will help build their language skills and build their confidence towards learning by writing short stories with them, and combine all the short stories into a book to share with others.
