Quote from the winner
Hong Kong Disneyland is most honoured to receive the "Outstanding Social Capital Partnership Award (Corporate)." It is a significant recognition of our partnership with community organisations and our contribution to the local community.
Co-organised by the resort and Outlying Islands Women's Association (OIWA), the "Family Storytelling-Neighbourhoods Support Project" consists of regular storytelling sessions, storytelling workshops for parents and the "Family Creative Story Competition." In 2014, 200 storytelling sessions were held with a total of 4338 participants recorded. The "Family Creative Story Competition" also attracted applications from almost a hundred families.
Not only can the project enhance parent-child relationships, but it has also brought us closer to the local community through the participation of Tung Chung residents. It is a solid testimony to CIIF's objective of forming a social network of reciprocity through cross-sectoral collaboration, all to enhance and sustain community capacity.
The resort would like to express heartfelt thanks to CIIF for funding the project, OIWA for its invitation, and the support of the volunteers and the families in Tung Chung.
The resort's Disney VoluntEARS will continue to give their utmost support to the project by engaging more people from all walks of life and pooling more resources to build social capital for the sustainable development of Lantau Island.
