Excitement and exchange: NBA stars open windows for HK youth
Divac, the Hon Bernard Chan & Dr Rosanna Wong  

This week's Divac Youth Basketball Camp, co-organized by HKFYG, is an initiative to bring world-class NBA star players and coaches to Hong Kong. During the camp, Olympic sportsmen are in close contact with our schoolchildren, training them in court techniques and good communication. Their skills and cultural exchange with our youngsters are opening new windows on the world. As Vlade Divac, the camp's genial former NBA superstar and Olympic silver says, the sport has 'a common language that transcends all boundaries ... a language spoken by children all over the world.'

Given a marvellous chance like this, young Hongkongers meet stars from other cultures, experience differences and learn how much is shared despite them. This means they gain exposure that only international exchange and travel can bring. The contact opens windows and the communication opens doors. If you would like to help us explore more avenues for such valuable opportunities, please phone 2123 9598 and talk to Bonnie Cheng in the Partnership Office to see what we can do.

Read Feature Story for some feedback from people involved in the basketball camp.
