engages seniors in diversionary work-related activities
The programme was initiated in March 2010 by a group of five volunteers from Starspur Enterprise Ltd. The volunteers taught seniors the skills needed to make soft toys, inspirational cards, origami and other handicrafts.
After receiving feedback from seniors about learning other crafts and skills, new skills such as knitting and crochet, and fuse beads were introduced.
Since then, the programme provided seniors with a platform to not only share and learn skills, but also to interact and bond with one another. Products made by the seniors are sold and sale proceeds are ploughed back into the programme to cover programme costs and into an incentive programme for the seniors.
As of 2018, the programme has welcomed 25 seniors and worked with individuals and organisations for corporate and personal gifts.
