March 31st saw our first collaboration with the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (HKFYG). Leading two groups of children between the ages of 4 to 8, we managed to collect quite a lot of rubbish along a pre-planned route in Fanling.
The route itself was initially intended to be run by teenagers, and so there was some difficulty in running with such young children in an area where cars pass, however having discussed with the HKFYG coordinators, we are going to be more prepared for future events and will make sure there
are contingency plans for such a situation.

We look forward to our future partnership with HKFYG and helping engage and empower the youth of Hong Kong to take care of their environment through their daily actions and in turn educate their peers!
