DWEP mixes clean-up drive with hike

02 June 2016

Members of the Domestic Workers Empowerment Project of the Hong Kong University took a hike to the Peak on May 15 for their first recreational trip, which was combined with a nature appreciation and clean-up drive.
The group led by DWEP proponent, Dr. Michael Manio took off from HKU at 9am and reached the Peak Tower at 12:15pm, after taking 10,948 steps to their destination.
Six groups of students participated in the hike. All of them were told to observe and engage with nature, and each one was required to identify five different medicinal plants and take photos that tell a story about nature.
Each group was also encouraged to collect trash on their way up to the Peak, while others were tasked with fixing a broken fence.
The activity ended with the participants saying how happy they were about taking part in the experience that helped raised awareness about nature's beauty and why there is a need to preserve it. -- contributed by Ellen Almacin
