Education programmes

Many of our community engagement initiatives support education related programmes. In particular our key strategic NGO partnerships focus on migrant and left-behind children, as well as other minority groups that may experience disadvantage or inequality in accessing education. Wherever possible we promote the use of our skills when supporting education related programmes in the community.

In FY16, we continued to organise two major educational programmes: Rural School Volunteer Programme (RSVP), and programmes for migrant children. The RSVP programme recruits PwC volunteers, travelling to targeted schools for one week, using their experiences and skills to bring new knowledge, and most importantly new horizon of the outside world to left-behind children at the schools in remote areas of China, etc.

In our migrant children programmes, PwC volunteers accompany migrant children through outdoor field trips or indoor extra-curricular activities, to help them engage in the local community, as well as to broaden their horizons and build up self-confidence.

I enjoyed the voluntary event of making moon cakes with children. This brought joy to them and they could share the self-made moon cakes with their family to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival.

"When we left the school, the children in Grade 3 cried hard as they had bonded with the teachers. I think English have rooted in some of them. …After class, we talked and shared problems we confronted during teaching and worked together to solve them. I knew colleagues and made friends with them during the week in Henan. It is an amazing experience. I taught and I learned. I think I will take another chance to join."
