Learning Journey 8 - Leng Kee YEC: Jiak Pa Buay? [Have you eaten?]
Learning Journeys are designed to help participants of LeapForGood 2018 to discover and get closer to the emerging social needs of seniors and caregivers through the sharing of insights and participation in interactive activities, with organisations active in the space.
Leng Kee YEC: Jiak Pa Buay? [Have you eaten?]
Leng Kee YEC in collaboration with Lion's Befriender organized this befriender session over food with the senior residents of Leng Kee. Leng Kee YEC is volunteer grassroot organisation based in Lengkok Bahru which allows youths to lead and make a difference in purposeful causes for the community. Over the years, a team of youths aged 15-35 have been advancing community service, youth outreach, and volunteerism within the constituency through programs and activities such as Colours, Happy Active Seniors (HAS), Genius in Us - a children's program and many more.
In this Learning Journey, you will be able to learn more about the life of Leng Kee senior residents and the ground-up initiatives introduced by VWOs to help them lead a better quality of life. You will have the opportunity to deliver a warm dinner to their homes, while taking the opportunity to understand their lives and the day-to-day challenges they constantly strive to overcome.
*This Learning Journey may pose some communication difficulties as the residents of Leng Kee are predominantly Chinese speaking.
