I·CARE Social Service Projects Scheme: Summary of 2018-19

The I·CARE Social Service Projects Scheme encourages students to organise and implement self-initiated social services.  Three rounds of vetting are conducted in each academic year so that students may submit applications in accordance with the commencement date of their projects and the amount of funds required.  While the projects could take place in Hong Kong, the Mainland or overseas, they must be initiated by students.

After the training activities, individual coaching, proposal vetting and project presentation, the I·CARE Social Service Projects Scheme granted approximately HK$660,000 to 20 projects serving Hong Kong, the Mainland (e.g. Fujian, Jiangxi and Guangdong provinces), and overseas countries (e.g. Nepal, Cambodia and Thailand).  A brief account of the projects is listed below:

With regard to the training of this academic year, this Centre had rolled out activities on different themes.  They include "proposal writing skills", "the know-how of elderly service", "exploring changing social service needs in a changing trend", and "experience shared by successful project teams".  Some of them had welcomed participation of the interested students who were not applicants for subsidies from the I·CARE Social Service Projects Scheme.

The I·CARE Social Service Projects Scheme for 2019-20 will soon commence.  Stay tuned for our announcements.  For enquiries, please contact Miss He of this Centre at 3943 9859 (Tel) or athenahe@cuhk.edu.hk (Email).
