Dyslexia is the most common form of learning disability. A research conducted by the University of Hong Kong indicated that dyslexia is common in Hong Kong and is affecting one in every ten person, making them frustrated and discouraged in their school life, and hindering their academic and emotional development. The Pathways Foundation targets these students to provide them with long-term professional intervention, bridge their learning gap and enhance their interest and confidence in learning. We believe that students with dyslexia from low-income families are in greater need of our support, as they lack the resources to seek outside help and support from school is limited.
Rotary Club of Hong Kong South partnered with The Pathways Foundation to support Bursary scheme. The scheme is provide access to the specialized intervention programs for children from low-income families who may lack the financial means to afford such services. Through our donation to Pathways, 14 students were benefitted to join the program from Sept 1 2022 to Aug 31, 2023. By spnsoring these children, we bridge the gap between their learning needs and available resources enabling them to unlock their full potential and to overcome their academic challenges.
