Our third week is jam-packed. First we had our Design Thinking crashcourse, held by Andrew Cheung of the Good Lab! Where the Campers were put through the paces about the Design Thinking process. Second and third, we also had our site/SIGHT visits to our local partners, in Mui Wo for the mobile clinic project, and to Pok Fu Lam, to HK Red Cross John F. Kennedy Center for our assistive technology project!
On our second week we are breaking down the problems to our Campers already, well, the overseas ones at least. Our Leaders (names in brackets) introduced and unpacked the projects from Cambodia:
Hygiene & education in Siem Reap (Elizabeth & Fernando) & Khmer Eats: Healthy snacks for slum children in Phnom Penh (Issei & Nadiya) and in Guizhou: A social enterprise with Moringa - Phase 2 (Davy, along with Brian, Caroline, Fizzy and Grace). You can see our make-shift tippy-tap in action in the photos!
The Campers will be visiting local partners (i.e. SIGHT/Site visits) in the coming 2 weeks, stayed tuned for updates on that front, especially via our Instagram Stories!

SIGHT Camp 2017 Kickoff!
And we're back!
It's our 3rd go at SIGHT Camp, (third already, can you believe that? We don't...) So a warm welcome to all our new Campers, and we can't wait to get things going!
This year we have 5 projects spanning 3 countries:
P.S. We have a new face joining us at the teaching team, it's Andrew Tsui @Rooftop Republic, we are so happy to have him with us for this Camp!
is a 1-semester long non-credit bearing program, where SIGHT Campers are exposed to a myriad of global health issues via engaging with NGOs. Campers will follow-up on issues they find interest in, and from them develop solutions to solve these issues. The Camp is an accelerator of these ideas, providing workshops on design thinking, prototyping, product development, etc. The best ideas will stay and become fully-fledged SIGHT Projects in the Spring Semester.
