15 April 2016

Youth Work Project on "Love Connection"

The Zonta Club of Kowloon has launched a 18-month project named "Love Connection" to help teenage girls in achievement of mature values towards love and courtship. Opening of the project was officiated on April 15, 2016 at the Ma On Centre of HK Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council, the service partner.

Zontian Agnes Koon, Board Director and the President (Designate), gave an inspiring speech at the event, encouraging the young participants to actively participate in the forthcoming activities that ranged from educational workshop, talks, group therapy, drama therapy, camp to interested classes ( e.g. cooking and physical exercise).

Through the activities, the Club aimed to impart positive attitudes and values to the teenage girls, particularly those who felt disoriented and/or hurt in their relationships with the opposite sex, so that they knew how to better protect themselves in handling sexual demands from boyfriends. In the longer term, this might prevent or minimise teenage pregnancy and life-long emotional/psychological damages.

Zontian Susanna Lo (Chairman of the Social Services Committee), Lolita Ng, Cecilia Kuk and Beryl Chan attended the Opening Ceremony in support of this meaningful project.

The event was well attended by about 50 young girls. Quite a number of their boyfriends were present. An educational workshop on "Knowing More About The Opposite Sex" was organised immediately after the Opening Ceremony.
