Five Stones – 10th Thousand

Creating employment for various unprivileged groups ladies, such as Chronic sickness, deaf impaired, wheelchair bounded, home bounded, single mothers, elderly & woman inmates.

These ladies will be paid for the sewing of Five Stones, which the completed sets will be distributed to Special children in Special schools, children hospital wards & Rainbow Club.

This project aims to not only create employment to the underprivileged ladies, we would like to empower them with a sense of achievement with the knowledge that they are able to earn and to contribute to the society as well.  It will greatly benefit their emotion and psychology.  It will give them a sense of self-worth and a great boost for their self-esteem and self-confidence too.

The completed Five Stones sets will then be presented to the children of Special school.  We will have volunteering session to teach them the game.  The session will be able to introduce to them this traditional game of Five Stones and at the same time to mingle and interact socially with them.

The game of 5 stones is believed to have originated in Ancient Asia, during the Siege of Troy in 1184 BC.  The game aims to helps to improve eye sight and memory, and builds concentration and aiming skills.  It a good gauge of one’s dexterity and hand-eye coordination.

With this, it could not only be a enjoyable pastime for the Special children but benefit them in a wholesome way too….
