We have a new book coming out!

Hong Kong Outstanding Tertiary Students’ Services Association (HKOTSSA) published our new book, Colours of life Dialogue with Ethnic Minorities in Hong Kong. The book is written by HKOTSSA awardees and its hopes to raise awareness of the issues concerning social minorities in Hong Kong, encourage more university students to participate in community service, and promote compassion and mutual respect between target group and service volunteer.

It will be available for purchase in local bookstores very soon!

ALL revenue will be donated to Christian Action, grab a copy before it’s all gone! 😀
