A Word From Our Ambassador Leader
Hi everyone, it's great to meet you! I’m Casey Lee, and I was just your regular student studying in Grade 6 at the Independent Schools Foundation, Hong Kong. When Covid 19 first started, some of my friends decided to distribute some masks to people in need, and not wanting to be left out, I tagged along. Little did I know, that experience opened my eyes to all of the issues that many people in HK are facing. I witnessed people sleeping on the streets, I met a family of 6 living in a 120 square feet apartment, I saw the elderly scavenging in the dumpsters, trying to scrape some food together to fill their stomachs for one night, and more. Those experiences and images left a deep impression in me. How could there be such a big inequality in Hong Kong between the quality of life of the citizens of Hong Kong? Why should some children be able to go to school without a worry while others were left in the dust, stuck at home to take care of their younger siblings? I wanted to make a change in this, and do my own part to help whoever and whenever I could. That is why I joined Light their Rights HK.
Theodore Roosevelt once said,“ “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” If you are like me, a regular student who wants to use our abilities to make a change, and make one other persons life better, please join us.
Here, at Light Their Rights, we are a community of young students dedicated to serving and helping the community by doing what we can, with what we have in order to alleviate poverty, and empower the underprivileged by illuminating their rights. Whether it be through “action projects” such as food and clothing drives for the homeless, or “knowledge projects” such as by sharing research and reports to raise awareness or holding free educational workshops for underprivileged children, and more, we are constantly brainstorming achievable ideas to do what we can to help. As long as you are motivated, collaborative and passionate to serve, we will always have a place for you! So, wherever we are, and whoever we are, let's all work together, try to do what we can, and make the best use of the privilege given to us to help the underprivileged.

Maslow Hierarchy Of Needs - Physiological Needs
I’m sure the vast majority of us have a home to live in; but have you thought of people who are homeless? In this research, I will be mainly talking about how Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, specifically physiological needs, can
be reflected on the homeless. Physiological needs is the lowest layer of the pyramid and refers to basic human survival needs including food and water, sufficient rest, clothing and shelter, overall health, and reproduction.
