To strengthen family well-being and neighborhood cohesion in Kwun Tong community, a community -based "Learning families" campaign was conducted. As an initial step of this project, the investigators conducted a need assessments before designing and conducting a train-the-trainer workshop.The train-the-trainer workshop aimed to prepare the members of Estate Management Advisory Committees (EMAC) and Mutual Aid Committees (MACs) to implement and assist in conducting a series of community-based family well-being activities for residents in a public housing estate. Focus group interviews (before and one year after training workshop) were conducted to obtain opinion from the members of EMAC and MACs of the public housing estate.

According to the Social Welfare Department statistics, Kwun Tong has been ranked as the highest for the reported cases of elderly abuse (12.3%), the second and fourth highest for the reported cases of battered spouse (9.2%) and child abuse (7.9%) respectively . To strengthen family well-being in the Kwun Tong community, the investigators adopt a community-based participatory (CBP) approach and implement a community-based "Learning Families" campaign in Kwun Tong district with our collaborator, the Christian Family Service Centre (CFSC). The campaign aims to promote family health, happiness, and harmony (3Hs) through cultivating cooperative and self-regulated family learning culture in the public housing estate
Given that CFSC is the leading non-government organization based in Kwun Tong district, the investigators believe that the proposed campaign will deliver the family well-being messages effectively in the community via engaging major stakeholders such as the Estate Management Advisory Committees (EMACs) and the Mutual Aid Committees (MACs).
The investigators implemented a brief training sessions to the resident leaders of EMAC & MACs to engage and equip them with the general concept of "Family well-being", " Learning family", "Neighbourhood cohesion" and activities organizing skills. The train-the-trainer workshop aimed to prepare the members of Estate Management Advisory Committees (EMAC) and Mutual Aid Committees (MACs) to implement and assist in conducting a series of community-based family well-being activities for residents in a public housing estate.
Focus group interviews (before and one year after training workshop) were conducted to obtain opinion from the members of EMAC and MACs of the public housing estate. Questionnaire assessments were conducted before, immediately after finishing the training workshop, one year after training workshop.

A family of multisubunit protein complexes that form into large cylindrical structures which bind to and encapsulate non-native proteins. Chaperonins utilize the energy of ATP hydrolysis to enhance the efficiency of PROTEIN FOLDING reactions and thereby help proteins reach their functional conformation. The family of chaperonins is split into GROUP I CHAPERONINS, and GROUP II CHAPERONINS, with each group having its own repertoire of protein subunits and subcellular preferences.
