SES 2017@Sham Shui Po Bazaar Link Up with the Community

2017-05-01Jointly held by the Social Enterprise Summit, Link Up People and Lingnan Dr. Chung Wing Kwong Memorial Secondary School, the community project “Sham Shui Po Bazaar” is completed on 30 April for the third consecutive year. It brought innovative use of campus space as a community service platform, connecting teachers and students with stronger neighbourhood interaction.

This event aims to recall past feelings and community changes. There were more than 20 stalls in the bazaar mainly providing cheap and affordable lifestyle products and handicraft from business, school and social enterprises. The theme is related to tea culture and Yum Cha Together, a social enterprise that hosts tea events to inherit care and love to the community, is invited for sharing session. Students, parents, alumni and teachers from the school also supported the event with lion dance, magic and singing performances.

As part of the community initiative, SE Bazaar strives to connect the local community groups, businesses and schools with the neighbourhood in order to build a cooperative social network in the community.
