成長的小蘑

Carousel imageCarousel image

小蘑菇今年十九歲,是一位輕度智障的服務使用者,自202010月入住本處「屯門朗逸居」。剛入住時,小蘑菇未能即時適應陌生的環境,有時會感到害怕和傷心。宿舍職員一直耐心陪伴,讓小蘑菇減低緊張感,並感到真誠的關心,同時隨著漸漸與其他舍友建立良好關係,讓她開始適應院舍生活。


對於宿舍一班細心照顧和教導她的職員,和一眾陪伴她渡過適應期的舍友,小蘑菇表示十分感激。入住宿舍後,透過獨立生活訓練及各種訓練,提升了小蘑菇的獨立生活能力,並學習到工作技巧。她現時會協助宿舍預備晚餐,自行洗衣、執整房間、清潔家居等。


小蘑菇的社署監護人對她的進步也感到很高興,因學員在入宿前性格內向和不喜歡表達自己,但入住本舍後,學員變得獨立、開朗和主動,積極參與日常事務,十分投入宿舍生活。


期望小蘑菇在未來日子繼續茁壯成長,有更多機會與平台發揮所長!

由大小姐變成獨立的小圓

Carousel imageCarousel image

小圓是一位輕度智障的服務使用者,回想數年前初入住本處「獨立生活計劃」時,對獨立生活技巧不甚掌握。因此,宿舍職員為她制定了一系列訓練計劃,並隨著訓練需要變化作出調整及持續跟進。如今,小圓的能力提升不少,能自行煮食、洗衣、摺衫及清潔家居等,加上獲安排公開就業,生活變得更充實有意義,也提高了自我價值感。


家人對小圓的成長和改變感到很滿足,亦驚訝於女兒的顯著進步。小圓母親回想女兒過去在家中儼如大小姐一般,事事要別人協助,入住宿舍後,除了變得更獨立及生活技能提高,亦透過群體生活學習與人相處的正面態度。

小圓過去因情緒不穩定影響與家人的相處及關係,後來宿舍職員教導她學習寫心情日記以抒發情緒及學習反思,令她的情緒漸趨穩定,開始懂得表達感受。近日小圓參加了宿舍社工舉辦的實證為本社交技巧訓練小組,提升了管理情緒的技巧,學習如何正向表達及與人分享,令小圓的溝通技巧及與家人的關係更進一步改善。

活出我的快樂人生

Resam身邊不少朋友有吸食毒品的習慣。一念之差令Resam沉淪毒海15年。在昏亂的生活中,充滿了黑暗和無助。每天行屍走肉地過日子,行為和思想也不能夠自主。Resam意識到自己只有兩個選擇:一是吸毒至死,又或是戒毒尋求重生,但社區戒毒對Resam而言是一項極大的挑戰。這些年來,Resam在被迫和自願情況下曾在戒毒院舍進行了三次戒毒,但可惜回到社區後,很快就抵受不了引誘而復吸。

Resam於2018年接受油尖旺家庭成長軒(下稱「成長軒」)的協助,成功轉介至福音戒毒院舍接受治療。Resam在戒毒院舍認識了耶穌基督,在信仰中學習了很多道理,身心靈均得以洗滌。

成長軒職員與Resam在戒毒路上一路同行。在接受治療的各個階段,一直提供輔導和支援,讓Resam心裡感到平安和受尊重。成長軒職員更於每月的探訪中為Resam及其他舍友進行團契。藉著探訪,職員與Resam建立緊密關係和信任,並在戒毒路上一直扶持守望。完成治療後,Resam積極參與成長軒的活動和義工服務,以過來人身份為仍沉迷毒癮的人士推廣戒毒資訊,以生命影響生命。現時Resam已成功戒毒三年,和家人重修舊好之餘,更成家立業,事業和家庭方面都兼顧得宜。

Live my happy life

Many of Resam's friends have the habit of taking drugs. In one thought, Resam sank into the sea of poison for 15 years. Since then, Resam lived a chaotic life. His life was full of darkness and helplessness. Every day, he lived a life of walking dead, losing control of his actions and thoughts. Resam realized that he had only two choices. He either used drugs till death or sought "Reborn" after detoxification. Over the years, either forced or voluntarily, Resam went through detoxification in a drug rehabilitation center for three times. Unfortunately, soon after returning to the community, he felt difficult to resist the temptation and relapsed again. Community-based detoxification remained a great challenge for Resam.

In 2018, with the help of Yau Tsim Mong Family and Education Centre (YTMFESC), Resam was referred to a gospel drug rehabilitation center for treatment. Resam got a chance to know about Jesus Christ in the drug rehabilitation center and learned a lot of truth in his faith. In the process of rehabilitation, he felt cleansed both physically and mentally.

YTMFESC staff and Resam have been walking together on the road to detoxification. Counseling and support have been provided throughout various stages of treatment, making Resam feel safe and respected. For example, staff conducts fellowship with Resam and other roommates in the rehabilitation center during monthly visits. As time goes by, staff has built good relationship and trust with Resam through regular visits, and has been supporting him along the way. After completing the treatment, Resam has been actively participating in the activities and volunteer services of YTMFESC. He shares his own testimonies to those people who are still addicted to drugs during outreach. He wants them to change their life too, and be a good influence to others as well.


Now, Resam has successfully detoxed for three years. Apart from reconciling with his family, he also started a family and has a good balance between his career and family. Compared to the chaos and darkness of 15 years of life in drugs, Resam is now full of hope for the future and confidently treads the bright road.

由接受幫助變成社區大使

2010年底,Pun Deepa在朋友介紹下認識本中心。當時她剛從尼泊爾嫁到香港,身懷六甲的她除了要面對著陌生的環境,更有教養小朋友的挑戰。在中心尼泊爾同工的鼓勵下,Pun Deepa參與了婦女支援小組,慢慢於區內建立了人際網絡,得以與其他相同背景的婦女分享心得,討論照顧小朋友的苦與樂。Pun Deepa熱忱於不同的活動,如跳舞、話劇及義工活動等,漸漸由一個缺乏資源的新來港的少數族裔婦女,蛻變為義工及區內大使。她兩位小朋友都有參加中心的親子和小組活動。Pun Deepa的大兒子於本年九月將會升上中一,亦是今屆兒童發展基金的其中一位導生。他對烹飪和足球有深厚的興趣,透過計劃為自己規劃將來和方向,希望可以在這些方面進一步發展。

現時Deepa 已成功申請公屋,搬離油尖旺區。過去12年在油尖旺家庭成長軒的經歷,有助她一家人適應在港生活。她由衷感謝各職員的協助,讓她發掘到自己的興趣和認識了一群好友,陪伴著她一家的成長。

In 2007, Mrs. Pun Deepa came to Hong Kong after marriage and resided in the Yau Tsim Mong district. Through one of her friends, she heard about our Centre. Mrs. Pun Deepa became one of our regular service users since 2010. At that time, her baby boy was just 9 months old. In fact, lacking of support from friends and relatives, it was a challenge for new arrivals like Mrs. Pun Deepa to get used to living in Hong Kong. Moreover, she also faced with the challenges in raising children and parenting.

Given our Centre was running support groups, trainings and activities for women, one of our Nepalese Colleagues encouraged Mrs. Pun Deepa to join the women’s support group. Since then, she established a network in the district. The network allowed her to share her experience with women who have similar situations as well as to discuss their joys and sorrows of taking care of children. Gradually, she became a volunteer and an ambassador for helping newly arrived ethnic minority woman who was in need of resources.

She was enthusiastic about different activities, such as dancing, dramas and volunteer activities. Her children also have participated in the parent-child group activities of the center. Her eldest son will be promoted to Secondary 1 in September, 2022. He is also one of the mentees of Child Development Fund in 8th batch. He is interested in cooking and football, so he is planning to have further development in these areas.

Now, Deepa had successfully applied for public housing and moved out of the Yau Tsim Mong area. Her experience in Yau Tsim Mong Family Education and Support Centre in the past 12 years has helped her family adapt to other areas. She has been grateful for all the support offered to her. Apart from helping her to discover her interests, she wants to give thanks to all staff in introducing her a group of friends who later accompanied her in witnessing the family's growth.

勇於尋夢的媽媽

你的夢想是什麼? Sonam在尼泊爾長大, 高中畢業後來到香港和家人團聚。Sonam和一般打工仔一樣,每天營營役役地工作, 為生活打拼。2016年,Sonam 經朋友介紹下認識油尖旺家庭成長軒(下稱「成長軒」)和報讀了中心開辦的美甲師培訓課程。 Sonam起初對藝術花甲設計、光療樹脂殖甲、甚至對修甲技巧沒有半點概念。 在職員向她介紹課程後,她決定一試。 她心想如成功畢業,可在孩子上學後依靠一門手藝幫補家計,即使未能成功畢業也沒有太大損失。

完成課程後的Sonam並沒有即時投身美甲行業, 反而重回擔任全職母親的崗位。 在之後的日子,Sonam積極參加中心的義工服務,特別是與美甲和藝術相關的服務,可讓她大展身手,學以致用。Sonam透過中心服務增加了與不同族裔人士及本地人交流的機會,過程中自信心也得以提升。 一切的經驗都很寶貴,並且為其將來夢想從事的美甲事業奠定了基礎。

2021年,Sonam在成長軒職員的鼓勵下開展了自己的小生意,為社區的南亞裔婦女提供美甲服務,更在同年年底嘗試以私人方式教授基礎美甲技巧。一路走來,Sonam 發現在課程中尋回兒時對美術的熱忱,在義工服務中獲得成功感並提升了自信心。Sonam感謝同工們的一路同行和導師無私的教導,讓她無心插柳下將興趣發展成事業,更讓她成為家庭與事業均能兼顧的現代女性。

What is your dream?

Sonam grew up in Nepal and came to Hong Kong to reunite with her family after graduating from high school. Sonam, like other wage earners, works hard every day for a living. In 2016, through a friend's introduction, she came to know about Yau Tsim Mong Family and Education Centre (YTMFESC) and enrolled in the center's nail technician training course. Initially, she had no idea about the skills of nail art, gel art or even manicure techniques. After our staff explained to her about the course, she decided to give it a try. She thought that if she successfully graduated, she could rely on this skill to support her family financially after her children went to school. Even if she failed to graduate, she had nothing to lose. It’s win-win situation for her and YTMFESC.


After completing the course, Sonam did not join the nail industry immediately but returned to family as a full time mother. Even so, in the following days, Sonam actively participated in the volunteer services at the center, especially those related to manicure and nail art, which allowed her to practice her skills and apply what she had learned. Sonam has diverse opportunities to communicate with people of different cultural background through the services of the centre, thereby, increasing her self-confidence. All these eye-opening experience are valuable to her and lay the foundation for starting her dream career as a nail technician in the future.

In 2021, under the encouragement of YTMFESC staff, Sonam started her own small business in providing manicure services to ethnic minority women in the community. At the end of the same year, she started to teach basic manicure techniques as a private tutor. Along the way, she has regained her childhood passion for fine art in the course, found success in volunteering. All these experience boosted her self-confidence. Sonam thanked YTMFESC staffs and trainers for their selfless teaching, which supported her to turn her hobby into a career and become a modern woman who can balance both family and career.
