PhilanthroKids Young Children Empowerment Program

Founded in 2006, Child Psychoecology Foundation (CPF) is a Hong Kong registered charity (#92/8216). Our mission is to advocate the importance of psychological well-being of children and to promote parent-child philanthropic activities. We envision a world where children have fulfilling childhoods. In 2016. CPF developed a child empowerment program called PhilanthroKids for young children with the largest global philanthropy advancing organization, the Association of Fundraising Professionals International. Based on the international standards of ethics, the Ten Principal Values of Philanthropy (Kindness, Honesty, Respect, Openness, Generosity, Gratitude, Sympathy, Empathy, Responsibility and Trustworthiness) was established as the core values.

PhilanthroKids aims to introduce the concept of giving and kindness to young school children and empower them with daily activities to nurture their philanthropic character. To create a positive environment for young children to nurture their philanthropy character, CPF collaborates with local kindergartens and offer a series of professional training, educational talks and fun-to-learn lessons for parents, teachers, and children respectively. PhilanthroKids helps children in developing kindness, respect, gratitude and many positive characters in their daily activities. It also equips teachers with the professional knowledge and skills to assist their teaching while it helps parents to appreciate the importance of philanthropy in children psychological well-being and be supportive to their children at home and community.

Since 2017 PhilanthroKids has been shared at various international conferences in Japan, Korea, Thailand, US and China. In 2018, professional teacher training was part of the childhood education higher diploma curriculum at the Hong Kong Open University and over 200 ‘PhilanthroKids Certified Teachers’ were trained. In 2020, CPF was selected by international generosity movement, GivingTuesday as one of the 50 international cohort leaders of Starling Collectives from nearly 2,000 organizations and individuals. PhilanthroKids was one of the innovative projects in 29 countries and regions. It is the only one representing Hong Kong. In the same year, PhilanthroKids GivingTuesday Ambassador Award was launched in Hong Kong and 10 Ambassadors from kindergarten, primary and secondary schools were recognized as student role models in philanthropy.

PhilanthroKids aims to serve over 3,000 kindergarten children, parents, and teachers from 12 kindergartens this year. Although the pandemic has kept student learning remotely and caused stress staying indoor too long, CPF believes that empowering young children with philanthropy and taking care of their psychological well-being must continue. Your support to the PhilanthroKids Programme will be highly appreciated. Thank you.
