Challenge

For the underprivileged teens lacking resources and family support, they often have problems with low self-confidence and self-awareness. Especially for the teens in transition process (from elementary to junior high or from junior high to senior high), the sense of insecurity is even stronger. Their parents are often working in heavy jobs and come home late, so they might be easier to be absorbed by gang groups because they would think it might validate their own existence or earn attentions.

Solution

The Challenge Camp project is set up for underprivileged children in order to offer them a safe environment with positive social interactions and learning by exploring. With activities like Rappelling, Hiking, and Marathon, teens will encounter obstacles and the limitation of oneself and have to learn teamwork and gain the courage and perseverance to pass these tasks. In the camp project, they also learn to manage their budget, build up good habits and attitudes to face future challenges.

Long-Term Impact

1. 210+ vulnerable children participate per year. 2. Improve children's self-awareness and self-confidence. 3. Encourage children to treasure ones own uniqueness and discover their talents and capabilities. 4. Gaining positive interpersonal interaction, learn to accept the imperfectness of others and oneself. 5. Build children's characters and learn to share and take care of one another.
