Initiated and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the JC InnoPower: Fellowship for Teachers and Social Workers aims to build the innovative capacity of teachers and social workers in Hong Kong. The programme encourages them to innovate in response to educational and social challenges, thereby contributing to the long-term development of these sectors.
A social worker from Dialogue In The Dark (HK) Foundation is elected as “JC InnoPower social worker fellow”of this programme and is supported to launch an innovative project “JC InnoPower: VI Get Set Go”, encouraging VI to exercise. Due to their vision condition, VI faces different inconveniences and dangers during exercise. This limits their options and motivation for sports. The project aims to assist VI’s needs, connect VI and volunteers interested in sports, and develop a VI friendly sports society with local blind sports organizations. We will set up a Facebook group “Inclusive Sports Platform”, allowing VI and volunteers to do sports together!
31 May 2022 to 31 May 2023
1. 50 VI aged 18 or above that are interested in sports
2. 100 volunteers willing to assist VI
1. Encourage VI to exercise
2. Connect the visually impaired (“VI”) and volunteers interested in sports
3. Develop a VI friendly sports society with local blind sports organizations
“Inclusive Sports Platform”
The private Facebook group will be managed by us and their identity will be verified before entering the group. This platform will operate in 3 stages. In stage 1, we will organize group activities, allowing VI participants and volunteers to get to know each other. While in stages 2 and 3, VI participants and volunteers can meet in groups and invite each other out individually.
Volunteer training is provided to let volunteers understand VI’s needs, and methods to assist VI during exercise.
Research and Investigation
Research on inclusive sports for VI will be conducted so as to explore the effective solutions for VI to enjoy sports.
