Designed to expose children to an alternative form of expression, Street Poppy not only fosters creativity but teaches children the techniques necessary for making street art. On the second to last Saturday of every month, we teach children how to create a beautiful piece of street art through teamwork.

Historically, refugees have seen little to no support in the development of their employable skills and education. We wish to change that. In order to see the refugee community overcome their hardships:

2) To deliver longer-term code and design education that is competency-led and develops skills relevant to the talent demands of resettlement areas and provides a higher value skill set for greater alleviation of poverty.
Hong Kong works pretty well as an urban playground so we figured, why not take advantage? The Treasure Hunt is organized to be an adventure race, prompting people to go throughout all of Hong Kong and exposing them to things they wouldn’t usually see had they not been looking for them. Throughout the process we solve clues, complete various tasks, and race against the clock for a little friendly competition among peers. The event raises funds for two charities each year. During the route, the clues and tasks provided allow the competitors to learn about the challenges faced by the communities these charities support.
