Today, although the Hong Kong society is in general very prosperous, behind the scenery is life filled with pressures in many aspects.  This certainly affects the growth of our newer generations.  In recent years, incidents of self-mutilation and suicide of young people have occurred more frequently, which has drawn attention to the rash attitude of young people in dealing with emotional problems and life. As an organization dedicated to promoting life education in Hong Kong, WILL IN ACTION hopes to instill to young people a positive attitude towards life, and assist them to avoid of passive and negative emotions.  We hope that students can take a life education class easily and happily in the form of drama performance, through which to break the taboo of talking about life and death as much as possible.  Eventually to prevent more similar incidents happen.

Thanks to the Board of Management of Chinese Permanent Cemeteries (BMCPC) for their full support by sponsoring this “Life Education School Drama Tour” titled “Happy Running Line”.  Together with the “Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Association”, “Po Leung Kuk” and “St. James” “Welfare Society” as our supporting partners, we set  secondary school students as our main target audience.  The repertoire echoes the modern life of young people, and encourages young people to learn to live in the moment, properly handle emotional problems and cherish life.  Forty school plays have already been completed for the 2019-2021 school year. In view of the enthusiastic participation of the school, we has gratefully received the support of BMCPC to add 60 more drama performances, making a total of 100 performances.

This dram tour is an interactive short play called “Happy Running Line”. The main storyline is that young people nowadays love to run their live broadcast social on media.  They are motivated by receiving as much “likes” from their social media followers as possible. Through direct interaction between the drama actors and the students, students not only watch the performance as an audience, but also interact with the actors in the process to understand the pressure faced by the people in the play and provide relief methods. We hope that through this participation, students can realize that every word they say has the opportunity to have an unexpected impact on others.

(繁) 身前行動器官捐贈培訓教育獎學金 2017/2018

WILL IN ACTION set up an Overseas Training Fund to support personnel involved in organ donation to study and exchange overseas. Ms. Tong Yuen-fen, who is currently an Organ Donation Liaison Officer of the Hong Kong Hospital Authority, was allocated HK$25,000 to support part of the expenses of her attending a relevant advanced training in Spain.  The training required Ms. Tong to attend a five-day face-to-face organ donation training course at the Faculty of Medicine the University of Barcelona, ​​Spain from March 5th to March 9th, 2018, and on March 12th, 2018 A four-week internship at the Hospital Universitario Marques de Valdecilla, Santander, Spain until April 6th.

Upon her return from Spain, Mis. Tong shared with us when she had learned from the course and her inspiration.  Two of the points were related to public education and medical operations: 1) In Spain, organ donation was included in the subject of life and death education, which gives their citizens a positive attitude and respect towards organ donation.  It is not a tabooed subject to discuss and communicate with family members.  Spain also pursue an “opt-out scheme” for organ donation.  2) In the Spanish medical system, organ donation is included in the standard procedure for dealing with deceased persons.  In contrast, every organ donation arrangement in Hong Kong needs to be coordinated with relevant medical units on a case-by-case basis.  Miss Tang also expressed her views from a medical professional’s point of view.

WILL IN ACTION is pleased to report that public donations raised have been effectively used to promote professional training to enhance the effectiveness of organ donation in Hong Kong.

School Touring Life Education Drama - The Choice 2016/2017

What is the value of life? There has been a growing number of self-injurious and suicide incidents in related to youth in the past few years. The forgoing attitude of youth towards live and emotional problems has raised public concern.  Having life education as one of our core missions, Will In Action has launched a programme in 2016 to convey positive messages to the general youth, through a relaxing and interesting educational activity to help avoid more similar incidents.

With a generous sponsorship by The Board of Management of The Chinese Permanent Cemeteries, WIA kicked off a programme namely School Touring Life Education Drama – The Choice, with which we will be running 30 drama shows at no charge to local secondary schools and tertiary institutions during 2016 and 2017.  Through The Choice, we hope to arouse a positive attitude towards life and death in a relaxing, lively and stimulative manner to encourage youth to face and tackle adversity with courage and a positive mind.

The Choice, in contrast to traditional drama, adopt a “forum theatre” approach of performance. Participating students not only can enjoy the drama but also will have the chance to make direct interaction with the artistes on stage.  Since its launch in 2016, the drama has been receiving positive feedbacks from both the school teachers and the students. We sincerely hope the students can be inspired of a positive attitude towards handling challenges in their life journey to come. For the photos and details of the past shows, please refer to our programme facebook.
