EnVision It is a collection of writing, photography and artwork produced by students in Hong Kong to benefit Vision First and its programmes to support refugees and asylum seekers in Hong Kong.
With cameras and pens in hand and led by an ECP teacher, students from Canadian International School and youth from the Hong Kong refugee population came together to explore the themes of self, family, community and dreams. They shared experiences and bounced ideas off their partners, and they experimented with different ways of expressing their thoughts and feelings. Every week, laughter filled the classroom, and friendships seemed to linger in the halls for hours after. Together, we invite readers of this book to share our vision of community and to get a glimpse of Hong Kong through the eyes of nine of its youth.
Books for Charity
All ECP books are written by students in Hong Kong with net proceeds donated to our charity partners to support the valuable work that they do in Hong Kong and worldwide.
Charity partners include Room to Read, Make-A-Wish Hong Kong, Hong Kong Dog Rescue, The Hong Kong Red Cross, Foodlink Foundation, and Vision First.
About Our Authors
Young people often struggle to be heard, but Elephant Community Press offers opportunities for students to share their ideas with friends, family and the community at large. By publishing the work of young authors, ECP aims to demonstrate that there is an audience for well-crafted and thoughtful writing, no matter how old the writers are.
Our young authors range in age from 6 to 17 and attend both local and international schools in Hong Kong. They herald from diverse backgrounds, but share with us a passion for storytelling and the belief that everyone has something worthwhile to say.
ECP has worked with students from a wide variety of schools including Canadian International, German Swiss, Kennedy, Diocesan Girls’ Junior School, St. Paul’s Co-Ed, West Island, Braemar Hill, Diocesan Boys’ School, Singapore International, French International, HKIS, Glenealy and Renaissance College.
