“Summer Service and Learning Program for Secondary Schools” (扶智荒週), a service program co-organised by Tsinghua University, Beijing (“Tsinghua”) and Tseng Hin Pei Charity Fund Limited (the “Charity Fund”), offers rare for secondary students in Hong Kong opportunity to experience poverty and hardship in rural China, through volunteer teaching and other activities onsite. Mr Felix Tseng (WYK 81), former president of WYKPSA, is the supervisor of the Program.
The first cohort of 40 students and volunteer teachers including from both Wah Yans had completed a 9-day Program on July 2016. Their reflections are available at https://youtu.be/XALThzvOr6g?list=PLWpfminPx8mPGNwyloSw4epzRyaRq_ndG&t=11. The second cohort will be launched from 12-20 July 2017. To date, up to 50 students (some are from both Wah Yans) enrolled come from less privileged families who cannot afford the fee required. The Program is appealing to you to consider supporting these young guns to join this mission.
