President’s Message
April 2014


A Passionate Tune
Growing up, I never been the so-called popular girl at school nor been the one called out from a large crowd. However, I had always envy professional stage performers and its ability to showcase their talents under glamorous spotlight.

At this stage and time, I may not have the right rhyme or rhythm to be a professional singer or dancer. But I did find the right passionate tune four years ago as I joined JCI Hong Kong Jayceettes as prospective member in April 2010.

Over the years, the life in Jayceettes was like being in an orchestra, the diversity (our members) producing timeless classics (our projects). I express my greatest thanks to every Jayceettes, particularly all project teams for an incredible month. And congratulations to six prospective members in completing their PM projects this month, and more to complete in May. And I also say thanks to local Rotary Clubs for donating to Nothing But Coffee campaign and giving me opportunity to present the Chapter.  

An allegro, a fast and lively, month of April from the official kick-off of 2014 Care and Dare to the 'de-stress' PMO 2 to the thrilling list of May events - let me keep my message short, enjoy and read on!

國際青年商會於2008年與聯合國基金會共同創辦了「JCI Nothing But Nets 蚊帳捐贈計劃」, 透過在社區展開一連串教育宣傳和募捐活動, 以實際行動對抗瘧疾。今年則由香港女青年商會承辦, 舉辦一項名為 "Nothing But Coffee" 之籌款活動。

You just need to donate HK$100, not only providing Mosquito Nets to children in Africa, but also saving countless lives and igniting their hopes,and enjoy a Cup of Coffee*!

您只要捐出港幣$100元,不但為非洲兒童提供防蚊蚊帳,拯救無數生命和燃點他們的希望,您更可享用愛心咖啡一杯*。義賣所籌得之款項將捐給聯合國基金會,用作購買蚊帳以保護非洲兒童及其家庭免受瘧疾感染, 並且教導非洲家庭如何正確使用蚊帳。
