Community and charity engagement program “Oui care for a better Hong Kong".

Date : 29 March 2021

 

For the 2nd year in a row, our 16 4th-year students (Y-IV) have helped the French Chamber Foundation in its #makeitwork program for the working poor in Hong Kong. After having listened to its President, Thierry Neveux, and moved by the hurdles and life stories of the working poor in Hong Kong, the Y-IV were tasked to install software on laptops intended for the needy households. Supported by HKBU Centre for Innovative Service-Learning - 創新服務學習中心, this #servicelearning activity, that was supposed to be a relatively easy task, turned into a real test of creativity, patience and determination. Kudos to the Y-IV who celebrated #francophonie by embodying these values of #solidarity in times of COVID19 crisis.
