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.
