When Kids4Kids asked me to develop a creativity workshop for primary teachers, I jumped at the chance. “So, you’re asking me to be a part of the incredible Writing for a Cause project
Kids4Kids is a Hong Kong based non-profit organization established to inspire inspire young people in Hong Kong to take action and make a positive social impact. Kids4Kids aims to develop social awareness and responsibility by providing platforms that empower kids to enact positive change in their community. To date, Kids4Kids has partnered with over 65 schools, 40 community centres, and has involved over 15,500 students.
Nurturing Creativity in Literacy Development
and work with teachers on an area of education I feel passionately about?” I was hooked from the first moment. Hong Kong is a fast-paced metropolis, where time is money and everyone is busy getting ahead and providing for their family. And in education especially, competition is fierce and academic achievement is most prized. It seems there isn’t much space in the school curriculum for concepts such as creativity. What I love about the Writing for a Cause (WFAC) competition is that there are almost no limitations placed on the children. They get to develop, write and illustrate their own original stories. Children use divergent thinking and
give their imaginations a full workout. No one is applying the brakes on their

learning skills. It is creativity that will set humans apart from machines. So hats off to the teachers who somehow find that extra time, space and energy to support their students in creative expression. And hats off to Kids4Kids as WFAC celebrates its 9th anniversary. What an honour to be a small part of it.
SPOTLIGHT ON… Megan Mak author and illustrator of “Octopus Pipi Catches Friends”
Why did you join Writing for a Cause Competition? I love creating stories, so when Teacher Xu asked whether I wanted to participate in the Kids4Kids Writing for a Cause competition, I immediately said yes.
What have you gained from the overall experience? Upon participating in the Writing for a Cause competition, I realised that completing a picture book was more difficult than I imagined. But, as long as I persevered and did not give up, I could achieve anything.
Megan, 9, one of the Overall Winners of Writing for a Cause 2016. Megan is studying at Tuen Mun Government Primary School.
Where did the inspiration for your story come from? I was inspired to create this book based on my daily interactions with my classmates at school.
What has been the most challenging aspect throughout the whole process and how did you try to overcome this? There are so many illustrations in the book, so it was simply impossible to complete all the illustrations in a day. During the illustration process, it was difficult for me to be consistent with the illustration style and writing. However, with my parents’ and Teacher Xu’s encouragement and guidance, I succeeded and finished the book!
What message did you want to convey to the reader? Through reading my book, I hope readers will understand that everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. We should learn to appreciate others’ strengths but at the same time we need to learn to accept the shortcomings of others.
SPOTLIGHT ON… Mrs Mak Megan’s mother
How did you get Megan involved with Writing for a Cause? Megan loves creating stories. She took the initiative to join the competition herself. She enjoyed the entire process of designing this book.
What do you think Megan has gained from the process of writing and illustrating? This competition has required her to come up with an idea for a story, writing the story and creating illustrations, which were all completed by her. It has been a valuable experience for her.
What are some of the difficulties Megan has overcome? During the creation process, Megan faced many difficulties; for example, I had to keep reminding her to be consistent with the illustration style and writing. Whenever Megan was frustrated, I reminded her that storytelling was her passion. She wanted to participate in the competition, so she worked hard to accomplish this goal.

SPOTLIGHT ON… Annalise Mak author and illustrator of “The Rainbow Connection”
Where did you find the inspiration for your story? A lot of the elements in my story were based on what I see in my daily life. For example, I wanted the story to be about a smart girl hero who loves science and math–because I really love science and math. The leprechaun, Edgar, was based on an old man I saw hobbling on the street with a walking cane. I also like twists on myths and fairytales, so it was a lot of fun to play around with fairytale creatures and a science-loving girl hero.
What messages did you want to convey to the reader?
Would you recommend Writing for a Cause to your friends?
You don’t know what good you can do until you are brave enough to do it.
Yes, this experience was absolutely amazing! I had so much fun writing and illustrating my very own story. I felt that I grew a lot both as an artist and an author. I was really happy that some of my friends were also doing it so we could share our growth as writers. I was also so happy my grandparents, friends and other people liked reading my story and sharing it with their friends on Facebook!
Just because someone seems weird, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t help them.
Annalise, 10, one of the Most Promising Writers of Writing for a Cause 2016. She is studying at Hong Kong International School.
When you face a problem you shouldn’t give up easily. You sometimes have to think ‘out-of-the-box’ to solve the problem. Knowing a lot about science can help many people!
SPOTLIGHT ON… Annie Ho Ting competition judge
Why did you become involved with Writing for Cause (WFAC)?
What did you think of this year’s submissions?
Kids4Kids is a good friend of Bring Me A Book Hong Kong. This is my third year as a judge for WFAC, which provides a platform for children who may not have the opportunity for creative writing and illustrating in school.
As a former SCMP columnist recommending children’s books, I have met and researched many authors and illustrators, and the common thread among them (besides their brilliant imagination) is their love of books since childhood. It’s quite easy to see from the submissions who has read a lot of picture books; those with the best story arcs are the ones who likely do a lot of reading for pleasure.
How do children benefit from WFAC? If participants are interested in the creative process of writing and illustrating, I think they can learn a lot from the feedback of judges who have a wide range of expertise in picture book creation. Annie Ho Ting is chairman of the board at Bring Me A Book Hong Kong. She also chairs the selection committee for its English and Chinese book guides.
What tips would you give young writers interested in WFAC 2017? Read, read and re-read quality picture books. The more you read, the better writer and illustrator you will become!
SPOTLIGHT ON… Hu Man-yee teacher
Why did your school join the Writing for a Cause this year? Gifted and life education are our school’s major concerns, so joining Writing for a Cause helped meet our goals. It allowed students to become writers and illustrators and helped us identify talent. It also helped our students freely explore and express life issues.
Would you recommend My Story Creation workshops and the competition to other schools and why? Yes, I would. The workshops were excellent. They were concise and effective. Students can learn writing and drawing techniques through authentic practice. Moreover, the workshops are free and save teachers time in work preparation.
SPOTLIGHT ON… Vivian Kwok writing instructor
What has been your experience volunteering at Kids4Kids?
How does My Story Creation facilitate students' story creation?
This is my first year teaching both writing and illustration classes as part of the My Story Creation. Kids4Kids classes are not teacher-centered; there are a lot of opportunities for students to share their thoughts and speak up. As teachers, all we need to do is ask the right questions to guide students to think and be creative.
My Story Creation Primary School Programme empowers students to write and create stories. Students are encouraged to think out of the box and to write whatever they want to. As soon as the students come to realise that there is no right or wrong in story creation, they start to write with confidence and their innate creativity follows naturally.
What are the major difficulties students face when writing?
What tips would you give to students interested in story creation?
Ms. Hu, teacher-librarian at Tuen Mun Government Primary School
Lily Ho teacher
How did My Story Creation help your students?
Do you support students extracurricular activities?
Students are eager to create their own story. It is a good experience for them to do something they are interested in and take initiative to complete the task.
Yes, students need to broaden their horizons. Schools can design exercises that are less ‘controlled’ so that students can use their creativity for their school work.
Vivian conducted My Story Creation Workshops. She is a student at the University of Hong Kong.
Sometimes, students struggle with deciding what they should write about. Most of them are great academic writers at school, with a high level of language proficiency. Yet when it comes to creative writing, they tend to stay on the safe side and often think too logically.
Grab a pen and start writing! Don’t be afraid to share your stories with your teachers, family and friends. They are here to inspire and be inspired.
Ms. Ho, English teacher at Carmel Alison Lam Primary School 10

BUDDY READING PROGRAM
Maria Wong is a social worker at The Salvation Army Yaumatei, Integrated Service for Young People. She joined the Buddy Reading Program in 2015.
A chat with Maria Wong, Social Worker
Why did you choose to run the Buddy Reading Program in your community center?
This program provides an Englishspeaking platform for children from low-income backgrounds to learn the language outside of school. Also, as many of the Kids4Kids volunteers are secondary-school students, children view them as role models and can bond easily with them.
How does the Buddy Reading Program benefit the children in your center?
Would you recommend this program to other centers?

A Chat with Nicky Yang, Buddy Reading Volunteer
Is there anything you want to share from your Buddy Reading volunteer experience? At the end of the day, itâ€™s not just about how many books the kids have read or how many English words the kids can recognize. Itâ€™s about how this program connects the volunteers and kids by sharing the enjoyable experience of reading. I feel empowered through these reading sessions and it makes me realize that I can positively impact the community.

the term, the boy showed more interest in English and even read to me. Although it was challenging at first, sometimes it just takes more time for kids to feel comfortable with opening up to new people. By being patient and optimistic, it turned out to be really rewarding for the both of us in the end.
Story Time Buddy Reading and My Story Creation allow children the time and space to engage in story telling and creation.
Something to Celebrate Over 480 children were involved in Writing for a Cause. They have proudly written their own stories over the previous year. Kids4Kids volunteers devoted themselves to support the Buddy Reading and our team of enthusiastic volunteers were all celebrated at the Kids4Kids Change Maker Awards held at Asia Society in April.
