Harmony surrounds the team
Ekman: “Project SASA is not only my work place, but my second home!”
The most impressive feeling for me to work in Project SASA is that,” Project SASA is not only my work place, but my second home.” It is really unexpected that I could build up so close and supportive relationship with every staff in here, even though I felt worry to communicate and work with them in the beginning.
During past year in Project SASA, there were several remarkable and moving experiences that I could feel of being supported and concerned by my staff. Their unconditional acceptance, caring, encouragement and spiritual support made me feel warm and secure, especially when I faced to some difficulties or challenges in my work and my personal life.
Although we have differences among our cultures, it also creates the opportunity for us to share in it. ?Furthermore, it was also valuable to have some sincere and in-depth sharing of our thinking and feeling that enhanced our understanding as well as respect to each others’ cultures and values.
“Time is running fast, especially the happy hours.”
As the end of Project SASA is coming, I would like to thank all my dearest colleagues for bringing wonderful and unforgettable moments in my life and this will become my energy for my work in the coming future.
I am proud of my colleagues and also be a part of Project SASA.
Sita: “I never knew that one day these EM languages made my life totally different till I joined Hong Kong Christian Service.”
I still remember my mother was saying that “if I could speak Chinese rather than ethnic minority (EM) languages, I would had more chances of getting a decent job in Hong Kong”. When I look at myself, I felt I am loosing my strength and my confidence day by day and I never knew that one day these EM languages made my life totally different since I joined Hong Kong Christian Service.
It was till I joined the social service field that I came to know how language definitely matters to all EM people and their children. Many EM people are leaving behind in many aspects just because of language barrier. During my working experience, I had come across of many difficulties together with the EM members. Their touching real life stories and their strength in facing the challenges made me stronger and made me even more positive to lives of the EM community.
Last but not least, I would like to thank all Project SASA colleagues for giving me a full of support and my Project Leader for offering me positive feedback. Without their support I could not able to reached this far.
Mandeep: “If I have any chance to serve the community in the coming future I would love to as I have been ready for it.”
I have been working in Project SASA for more than a year but the feeling is like I had been here for centuries as I am so used to here. Although I was given a name to work here as an interpreter but I’m very happy to learn every other things too.
When I first came to Project SASA I was so new to the social service field, everything was so new to me that I didn’t know what to do. However, I don’t feel like going to other fields because I have realized that I got to learn new and interesting things as well as making contribution to the society.
All the colleagues and the project leader are so unique and so sweet that without their help I would not have reached this stage. Everyone here is so helpful and willing to teach me new things no matter how busy they are.
I would like to thank all my colleagues and my project leader for everything they have done for me and for always being there for me. Moreover I would like to thank our members for giving me new experiences in different stages and times.
The project is going to an end but I am sure that we will still be attached to each other and search for more opportunities to help the society. If I have any chance to serve the community in the coming future I would love to as I have been ready for it.

Gokul: “I must say that it is one of the happiest experiences in my life because of the teamwork and harmonious relationships among people of different ethnicity.”
I would like to thanks to Hong Kong Christian Service for offering me a lot of idea and knowledge in the social service field. Working in Hong Kong Christian Service not only gave me a lot of opportunities to enhance my self-confidence and strength but gave me happiness and satisfaction in my career. This career is really interesting as it has demonstrated strong relationship between human and society.
Well, let me share about my feeling of working in Project SASA. Though I have not worked for long time in Project SASA, I must say that it is one of the happiest experiences in my life because of the teamwork and harmonious relationships among people of different ethnicity. As a team, we always listen and respect to each others’ ideas that makes the team success.
I really want to thanks to Karrie and Ekman who always gave me support, encouragement and positive feedback, which made me thrilled and enthusiastic. I also want to thanks to all my colleagues because they always helped me whenever in need. I know that sometimes there were some difficulties due to the language barrier but we all tried to communicate with each others with patience.
Besides, I want to thanks to our members who have really shown their concern towards the society. I am looking forward to see your much more participation in the future. Without your support I think that a harmonious society would never been built.
Good Luck! I wish all the best for your future!
