Programme code: 1718SDtacep002
According to ‘Hong Kong Poverty Situation Report 2015’, there were 970,000 people living below the poverty line set in 2013, and the poverty rate was 14.3 per cent. The report also states that Sham Shui Po has the highest poverty rate of the city’s 18 districts. Co-organised with J Life Foundation Limited, the purpose of this programme is to provide HKU students with an opportunity to serve the underprivileged population in the poorest district in Hong Kong, especially the children, through food distribution and tutoring, while enabling the underprivileged children to develop a positive attitude towards learning. The ultimate aim of the programme is to help consolidate community support and assistance for the underprivileged people.
