The mission of Mother’s Choice is to join hands with the community to give hope and change life stories. We have seen how powerful it is when our community works together to turn crisis into hope. Everyone has a role to play, and everyone can make a difference.
At Mother’s Choice, we believe that even the youngest in our community can play an active role and when young people have the chance to serve their communities, everyone benefits! Students gain skills necessary to succeed in school, in the workplace and in life, and the community develops strong, diverse groups of inspired and engaged young people.
Below are the opportunities for students to support our work:
Youth Leadership Council
Each generation brings with it change and at Mother’s Choice, we want to harness the vision and energy of schools and students and provide them the chance to serve their community. Started in 2015, the Mother’s Choice Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is a youth-centered advisory group designed to provide leadership development for student members as well as facilitate teamwork, build youth confidence and strengthen student skills with problem-solving, creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. Our program emphasizes authenticity, ethics and collaborative decision-making and enhances learning outside of the classroom.
YLC School Chapters in 2022/23 include:
- Canadian International School
- Christian Alliance International School
- Diocesan Boys’ School
- Discovery College
- German Swiss International School

Craft Makers’ Club
Do you enjoy making craft projects and being creative? Do you like helping others? If so, we’d love to hear from you!
At Mother’s Choice, we believe that everyone has a role to play and that everyone can make a difference, including the youngest in our community! We are recruiting enthusiastic students to create craftwork for our children awaiting forever families.
The Craft Makers’ Club is a fun yet rewarding way for students to spend time building, exploring and creating together while also having a positive impact on our community. It also provides support to Mother’s Choice through creative, hands-on projects that celebrate kids’ natural creativity and curiosity, while also being able to learn about the issues that vulnerable children in our community face.
Students will work on two different craft projects – they will create Christmas Cards for children awaiting forever families and Thank You Cards for our supporters.
The projects will kick off with a briefing session (Zoom) held at 4-5pm, Thurs 17th Nov 2022 / 16th Feb / 15th June / 20th July 2023. If you are interested, please register here or the button below. All students must join to learn what we do and understand what they need to deliver. All craft handiworks will be mailed to Mother’s Choice at #10 Borrett Road, Mid Levels, Hong Kong.
By the end of the project, students will learn new skills and ways of expressing themselves and develop a sense of purpose and fulfillment by making a positive impact in our city.
