Studies from 11 developing countries around the world have shown that children and young people with disabilities are less likely to start school and often have lower levels of education. The correlation between disability and poor education outcomes is often larger than those associated with other characteristics, such as gender, rural residence or low economic status (Filmer, 2008). In South Africa, Howell (2006) argues that the attendance and completion of higher education among people with disabilities are affected by attitudes that reinforce the notion that disabled students do not have a future in higher education and thus it is not in their own interests or in the interests of the school to support that career path (Howell, 2006).

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
