Co-organized with Fu Hong Society, HKMU Best Buddies Programme – Arts with Intellectual Disability Scheme was launched in Feb, 2023. A total of 16 undergraduate students were recruited to build one-to-one friendship with people with intellectual disabilities through expressive art activities.
During the programme, students and people with intellectual disabilities built up their trust and friendship through different activities, including hand-paintings and Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden visit. In addition, students also prepared booths and activities for their buddies to enjoy during the HKMU Best Buddies Ceremony and Carnival.
The Hong Kong Metropolitan University has also became the 25th branch of the “Best Buddies Hong Kong” movement, which will continue to make contribution to an inclusive society.
