Direction Association for the Handicapped
Direction Association for the Handicapped (DAH) is the first registered non-profit making association in Hong Kong that primarily serves severely physically handicapped individuals. The association’s mission is to promote mutual-help spirit among members, develop members’ potential, enhance the social status and welfare of the severely physically disabled, and eventually encourage members to contribute to the society in a positive and proactive manner.
With the donation from CLP, DAH has launched the U CAN campaign in November 2017. Around 100 U CAN ambassadors from various sectors ranging from social welfare and education to political and business have been recruited to promote the U CAN spirit, spreading positive energy through sharing their experience in adversity management. Followed by the introduction of an online sharing platform and adversity quotient trainings, U CAN ambassadors will further promote the U CAN spirit in the workplace, family and the community as a whole in the future.
獲中電的捐助，協會於2017年11月推出「U CAN無限可能」計劃，以宣揚「潛能在我，何懼障礙」的訊息。該計劃成功招募百多名來自社福界、學術界、政界和商界的大使推廣「U CAN」精神，並分享他們的抗逆心路歷程。透過網上分享平台及逆境智商訓練班，U CAN大使更承諾未來將進一步在公司、家庭和社區中推廣「U CAN無限可能」精神。
