我們邀請了其中一位委員會成員 – Thomas Huang,分享他選擇加入香港仁人家園的原因,抽出時間提供他的專業知識給我們。他也分享了青年人對香港房屋改變的影響力。 Thomas 是一位年輕的創業家,Happyer.io 聯合創始人和首席運營官,亦是我們最年輕的委員會成員! 他說:「 I think it will be the younger generation that will successfully address the housing crisis. The younger generation is hungry for change and is willing to do something about it 」。 The younger generation is hungry for change and is willing to do something about it”.

Thomas 分享了他第一次在中國參與「青年領袖建屋計劃」的經驗:「 My mother always shared stories of her struggles, as a Cambodian refugee, escaping genocide and living without a home. It wasn’t until I went on my first Youth Build in rural China that I encountered homelessness first hand and saw the effects it had on struggling families. It felt so rewarding to provide homes, shelter and more importantly a sense of belonging for these families through fundraising, building and raising awareness around the cause」。

他相信青年人對社會有強大的影響力: 「We have a superpower that those before didn’t have – interconnectedness and technology. We all have social media, phones, computers and new technology that’s emerging. We can easily keep up with what’s going on around the world, see what’s working elsewhere and come together to replicate solutions to serious problems, like the housing crisis. We are very adaptable to new technologies and new ways of doing things, which give us an edge in coming together and making an impact」。

多謝Thomas 給香港仁人家園的支持,時間和專業知識。 他所提議的創新想法都讓我們朝着實現「人人得以安居」的願景邁進一步。 我們希望他的故事分享可以鼓勵更多青年人踏出一步,為社會的未來作出改變。
