Time is running so fast that Project SASA has completed our 3-year journey of facilitating better social inclusion in the society.
For our teammates, the experiences gained in the past 3 years are one of the most precious moments in our lives that we will never forget. In fact, Project SASA was grown up by absorbing energies from your trust, participation and support! So, thanks very much for all of you!
“When there’re H.O.P.E.S., there’s better future!” is the slogan of our closing ceremony. With each letter of “HOPES” stands for 5 different elements.
“H” stands for “harmony” which signifies the harmonious relationships established in our team, groups, programs and partnership with other organizations. All of these valuable relationships reminded us that there is only one human race once we open ourselves to know, to concern and support each others.
“O” represents “optimism”which points out the importance of upholding an open and positive attitude in respecting and accepting diverse cultures. In the previous 3 years, hundreds of people had been opened up their mind in knowing each others cultures through our multicultural programs. Some of them even joined hands in promoting multicultural appreciation in the community such as the “ReMi.com”.
“P” comes from “participation”which means the significance of energetic participation to show concerns on essential social issues. Showing care to the tragedy of South Asian tsunami, voicing out opinions on the Race Discrimination Bill and the educational reform as well as cooperating in conducting a survey on understanding ethnic minority women’s situations all demonstrated members’ global vision. Apart from the household issues, there are lots more for us to concern outside our backyards.
“E” stands for “empowerment” which indicates the value of everlasting effort in self-development and better adjustment. In the previous years, many of our members had attended several of our classes and groups from which they had not only gained knowledge and skills, but developed self-confidence in facing problems and creating better future.
At last, “S” represents “society”which symbolizes the worth of serving others in the community. It was through contribution in volunteer works that our members helped in generating a more socially inclusive society which belongs to all.
We hope that more and more people conscious of and demonstrate the 5 elements in their daily lives, hence establishing prosperous future for all.
