ABOUT US

Kongtinue is a group formed by a team of Hong Kong social workers and education advocates. For Hong Kong children and teenagers who have migrated to the United Kingdom, being third-culture kids (TCKs), which refers to children who have not grown up in their parents' country of origin during their formative years, self-fulfillment, community adaptation, and emotional issues are significant challenges they face in transitioning to different environments.


Our team aims to be a bridge of support for Hong Kong children and teenagers who have migrated to the UK, accompanying them through these significant challenges. We hope that even though they may not have grown up in Hong Kong, they can still appreciate Hong Kong culture and values. As such, we have named our organization "Kongtinue," representing the idea of "continuation."

Kongtinue是由一班香港社工及教育倡議者組成。移居英國的香港兒童身為第三文化小孩(或稱TCKs,泛指在性格形成期沒有生活在父母出生地的兒童),自我實現、社區適應及情緒問題是他們在過渡不同環境中要面對的重大議題。

我們團隊希望移英香港兒童在過渡文化及環境差異時,可以成為支援他們的橋樑,陪伴他們完成這些重大挑戰而組成。我們希望即使他們未能在香港長大,仍可以保留香港文化及價值,因而命名為代表「延續」之意的「Kongtinue」。
