Spirit of Hong Kong Awards. teacher turned advocate builds welcoming environment for those with disabilities

  • SENsational Foundation director Faride Shroff in the running for Spirit of Perseverance category in this year’s Spirit of Hong Kong Awards

  • ‘In the journey towards cultural change by promoting awareness, we must confront and eradicate misconceptions, misunderstandings and discrimination,’ she says

Faride Shroff has taught children with special education needs and stood at the forefront of efforts to create a welcoming environment for those with disabilities in India and Hong Kong over the last 40 years.


She served as the head teacher of a school for those with special needs in Mumbai in the 1980s, later getting married and then joining Hong Kong’s largest international school group, the English Schools Foundation, in 1991.


The educator also established the SENsational Foundation in 2013. The non-profit aims to eliminate misunderstandings and encourage a greater sense of respect and empowerment within society.
