“Local Poverty Alleviation Initiative” (LPAI) aims at facilitating students to initiate long term interest and commitment to serve the local, regional and international communities. Through participating in community services, I.CARE allows students to gain first-hand experience important societal issues and to reflect on their social responsibility as an university student and as a global citizen. These projects will focus on both addressing the underlying causes of poverty as well as building an enabling environment for poverty alleviation. They will be pursued under four major schemes:

  1. Inter-Cultural Cohesion Scheme, 
  2. Youth and Youngsters Scheme, 
  3. Need-based Development Scheme,
  4. Student-led Services Grants.

Hong Kong has a pivotal role in international context. Not only does this city occupy an important position in the history of modern China, it is also inextricably linked with countries around the world. Nevertheless, how much do you know about the stories of this “Pearl of the East”?

Admitted students will receive a series of professional training (e.g. tour guiding techniques, communication skills, and tactics of shooting) before being engaged in field trips on designated routes. They will then be given chances to lead cultural tours serving secondary school students to unveil the hidden side of Hong Kong.
