Yuen Long District (YLDIST) celebrated the fifth anniversary of "Project Himalaya" and appointed Non-ethnic Chinese (NEC) Fight Crime Ambassadors for 2018 at a ceremony on July 25. YLDIST Commander Lee Wai-man thanked the project members and the ambassadors for working with officers to build a peaceful community.
Mr Lee awarded 15 outstanding members of "Project Himalaya" at the ceremony. The project was launched in 2013 with the aim of helping NEC teenagers to boost their self-confidence by improving their Chinese proficiency, and more importantly, to raise their anti-crime awareness. Arrangements have been made for members to join a variety of activities, including Chinese language class, football games, judo as well as visits to the Correctional Services Department and the Fire Services Department.
Meanwhile, Mr Lee appointed 15 NEC Fight Crime Ambassadors with a view to fostering a stronger collaborative relationship between the Police and the NEC community. In addition to disseminating crime prevention messages, the ambassadors would help to explain to the NEC the importance of complying with laws in Hong Kong.
