Student-Led Service Grants

As the poverty issues in Hong Kong exert greater influence upon the society, in this year, the Local Poverty Alleviation Initiative will provide funding to the I.CARE Service Projects to fund student-led local service projects. Students are encouraged to design, implement and evaluate local poverty alleviation projects on their own. Through this scheme, they could make use of own knowledge, expertise and connection in the local community to formulate own service projects.
