Background

The SoCO English tutoring programme aims to facilitate preschool children's language acquisition and develop their interests in learning English. Through story-telling and interactive games, the course builds up children's foundational knowledge like alphabetical understanding, letter-sound recognition and vocabulary acquisition. The course will be held on every Saturday Morning with 12 lessons in total. There are 3 classes of 3 different levels (K1-K3). Volunteers are expected to teach the classes once a week. The classes will be held between October 2022 to January 2023.

What we have

Volunteers are required to design their own teaching plans and SoCO is able to provide teaching materials for the lessons. If volunteers have encounter any difficulties in teaching the lessons, they can seek advice from our staff as well.

What we do

Work for dignity Society for Community Organization (SoCO) is a human rights advocacy group established in 1972, dedicated to serve the underprivileged community in Hong Kong. Working with limited resources, SoCO advocates for comprehensive social policy changes to ensure the protection of fundamental human rights of people in Hong Kong. Struggle for survival In the metropolitan city of Hong Kong, there are over 1.4 million people living in poverty. Over 200,000 residents live in urban slums, in squalid conditions that are inadequate for basic living with human dignity. These marginalized groups include caged home lodgers, families with children living in cramped wood-partitioned cubicles, sub-divided units’ households, new immigrants, homeless people as well as people with mental illness all struggling for survival.
