WHY GIVE?

 

Li Po Chun UWC of Hong Kong (LPCUWC) is proud of a large number of achievements and unique accomplishments.

Actively promoting educational peace programmes in Asia. The two key programmes are the Sino-Japan Youth Conference (SJYC) and Initiative for Peace (IFP). SJYC brings young people from Japan, mainland China and Hong Kong together. IFP worked on bringing students from the Mindanao region of the Philippines to Hong Kong  over past 6 years and youth from Kashmir & India for 3 years before that. IFP is currently working on Minorities issue in HK and also on the conflict in South Thailand. In both programmes, students engage in mutual understanding and respect, develop conflict resolution and leadership skills.

An extensive undertaking of service within Hong Kong.  The Coral Monitoring programme trains a group of students to learn to deep-sea dive and once proficient monitor the coral in Hong Kong waters, submitting the data to the World Wildlife Fund. We undertake regular service activities with the school children that live in the “caged homes” in Sham Shui Po; English support for students in disadvantaged Primary Schools and work with an NGO supporting refugee programme.
