“HI Partner” Program (動人計劃) is a CEO Hong Kong program since 2018. “HI” stands for Human-animal Interaction/Intervention. HI has been adopted as an effective mean for decades overseas as a type of assistance/therapy/aid for children and adults with various kinds of disabilities or emotional challenges, elderly and prisoner rehabilitation, etc.
In the past, CEO embodied the positive outcomes of “HI” in helping disabled orphans and underprivileged children by advocating “animal-assisted life education” in China. In light of this, CEO further promotes the adoption of “HI” in Hong Kong to serve the community in need. Since September 2018, CEO has partnered with Haven of Hope Sunnyside Special Education School in the “HI Partner” project by engaging a trained dog in classes to explore innovative ways to facilitate learning in children with special needs.
