樂齡培力計劃 Older Persons Empowerment
在 2012 年，我們開始了嚮光計畫，十年後始終如一，擁護相同的使命 – 充權當地社區。2022 年，我們擴展至為樂齡舉行創意教育工作坊，更投入於社區，並給予相同的愛與關懷，就像這些年來我們對待孩子一樣。
Older Persons Empowerment
Over ten years ago in 2012, we began Bright Side Projects with the same purpose that we have today – to empower our local communities. In 2022 we have started our creative education workshops with older peoples, getting local communities involved, and look to providing them with the same love and attention that we have shown our kids.
During our ten year old journey we have learned so many things. Not only have Bright Side youth have grown up – moving onto college, their first jobs, or starting their own families, but we have also learned so much alongside them.
We came to realize that while we often talk about the next generation as being our brighter future, we cannot also forget those in the present and past who have paved the way. After all, how can there be a future if we disregard our past? How can we teach about compassion if this kindness and care only is extended to only some age groups?
Join us in our Older Persons Empowerment Project, a series of curated creative education workshops tailored specifically to engage and empower older persons. No matter the age each and every one of us still be given the opportunity to learn, love, create, and connect.
Let’s Choose Love and flourish together!

Principles for Older Persons
Along with incorporating CRC 《兒童權利公約》 we also strive to adhere to the Principles for Older Persons which focuses on reaffirming critical human rights for older persons. The principles are divided into the categories of independence, participation, care, self-fulfillment and dignity.
We are dedicated to providing safe spaces to peoples of all ages during their experience with Bright Side Projects as to empower them to live to their fullest potential! We’ve particularly focused on Article 4, 7, 8, 10, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18 and welcome you to read the convention in depth here.
