I·CARE Community Research Scheme: Progress Update

The I·CARE Community Research Scheme aims to deepen students’ understanding of the deprived communities and to foster their curiosity to explore ways of civic participation through small-scale research.  Themed “Search for Well-rounded Perspective; Renew One’s Perception”, the scheme of this academic year is carried out at two stages to enhance participants’ knowledge of the marginalised groups, overcome their limitation of thoughts and examine the possibility of social changes.

Stage 1 of this scheme is “Online Training” under which four sharing sessions were successfully completed in the first term.  As for Stage 2 namely “On-site Research”, 11 students were selected to form a research team in last month.  After receiving specialised training in conducting surveys by questionnaire and in-depth interview on the 5th and 7th of this month, members then carried out phone interviews with over 50 residents of the Shek Lei Interim Housing to collect data of their family background, living condition and thoughts towards the re-development of that Interim Housing.  The research team will later consolidate and analyse the data gathered from the phone interviews to formulate their research plan.
