PhilanthroKids Young Children Empowerment Program
Founded in 2006, Child Psychoecology Foundation (CPF) is a Hong Kong registered charity (#91/8216). The mission is to promote psychological well-being of children through parent-child and philanthropic activities. The motto is ‘Fulfilling Childhoods start with Giving’. In 2016, CPF developed a children empowerment program called PhilanthroKids with the largest global philanthropy advancing organization, the Association of Fundraising Professionals. Based on the international standards of ethics, the Ten Principal Values of Philanthropy (Kindness, Honesty, Respect, Openness, Generosity, Gratitude, Sympathy, Empathy, Responsibility and Trustworthiness) were established as our core values.
PhilanthroKids aims to promote kindness and giving to young children and empower them with daily philanthropic activities. To create a positive environment for young children to nurture their philanthropy character, CPF collaborates with local kindergartens and offer a series of free professional training, educational talks and fun-to-learn lessons for parents, teachers, and children respectively. PhilanthroKids nurtures children in developing kindness, respect, gratitude, and many positive character traits through daily activities. It also equips teachers with the professional knowledge and skills for their teaching while it assists parents to be supportive to their children at home and at community.
Since 2017 PhilanthroKids has been shared at various international conferences in Japan, Korea, Thailand, US and China. In 2018, PhilanthroKids teacher training was part of the early childhood education higher diploma curriculum at the Hong Kong Open University and nearly 300 ‘Certified Teachers’ were trained. In 2020, CPF was selected by international generosity movement, GivingTuesday as the 50 international cohort leaders of Starling Collectives from 2,000 organization and individual applicants and PhilanthroKids was the only innovative projects representing Hong Kong. In the same year, PhilanthroKids GivingTuesday Ambassador Award was inaugurated in Hong Kong and 10 students from kindergarten, primary and secondary schools were selected as ambassadors.
This year, PhilanthroKids aims to serve over 3,000 kindergarten children, parents, and teachers from 12 local kindergartens free of charge. Although the COVID-19 pandemic has poised many challenges to children development, we believe that empowering young children with philanthropy and taking care of their psychological well-being must continue.
CPF is grateful for your kind support and generous donation. Thank you.
