Sarene Chan (Left)
Sarene Chan graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Communication Design from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2013. Currently working as an illustrator and visual journalist, her works are often associated with the pursuit of spirituality and touches of humanity. She has worked at news agency drawing infographics and illustrations for news stories while working as an illustrator on the side. Local magazines such as Fleurs des Lettres, Breakazine!, MOViEMOViE Magazine and ArtAsiaPacific have featured her works. She has also created illustrations and hosted workshops for brands including NIKE, MUJI, Lane Crawford and Moleskine. Her first solo exhibition, held at Kubrick, showcased a series of her drawings with the theme of nature. Sarene was a winner of the Young Design Talent Award by the HKSAR in 2016 and received the sponsorship for a 12-month work attachment in Tokyo starting from September 2017.

Agnes Nong (Right)
Agnes is a graduate in Product Design and Art and Design in Education from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. She believes that design is a process involving not only creativity but also education. In 2012, Agnes founded “Memories Factory”, an innovative project aiming to arouse public awareness of environmental protection by upcycling participants’ thoughts, emotion and memories. She also incorporates design education in the products and workshops of the project. “Memories Factory” has attracted media and public attention, and become one of the very first successfully funded projects on Fringe Backer, an online crowd-funding platform, in 2012. It was also one of the PolyU Micro Fund awardees in 2013.

Beneficiaries

Aberdeen Technical School

In the 1920s, before nine-year compulsory education was introduced, many young people in Hong Kong did not have the privilege of receiving formal schooling, and that gravely affected their growth and career prospects. A group of visionary philanthropists, including Sir Robert Hotung and Mr Fung Ping Shan, established an education fund to build a technical school for children. The school was completed in 1935 and was entrusted to the Salesian Brothers and Fathers because they were experienced in educating the youth.
 
The core values of Salesian education of treasuring the youth and spreading kindness at school as a family are upheld. The School holds a firm belief that Catholic religious education is of paramount importance in the formation of the youth.
 
The boarding section has recently been reopened to provide Salesian education for the young, especially those who are poor and abandoned. It is the belief of the School that youth who are in need would be edified in the Salesian values to become citizens doing good to the society and to lead a decent life.
