VTC Student Development Foundation, with the objective of nurturing student excellence, was established in 2012 to support meaningful educational programmes through donations raised. These initiatives include conducting whole-person development programmes locally and abroad, setting up scholarships, providing financial assistance for needy students and developing quality exchange programmes, all with the aim to broaden students' horizons, strengthen their interpersonal skills and enrich their experiential learnings. Up till now, the Foundation has subsidized more than 8,000 students in over 400 learning and exchange activities.
Education Sector has been experiencing unprecedented changes and challenges in teaching and learning amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. Progressive emphasis on digital learning has had a significant impact on students’ learning. In view of this, VTC Alumni Relations has devised a new campaign “Operation Smile Behind Mask”, to raise fund for the VTC Bursary, to support students in need of immediate living and study expenses. It is important especially for those who lack online infrastructure, such as electronic devices or Wi-fi for e-learning at home. Your contribution would certainly help them resolve the difficulties and get the strength to move on.
As a token of appreciation, a box of surgical masks* would be given to our supporters who donate $500 or above to the VTC Bursary to support the Operation.
Let us stay positive and bring hearts together in the midst of the epidemic. Your support will help many needy students and leave them and yourself a bright smile behind the mask.
*You can also donate your box of surgical masks to needy students viz institutions of the VTC. Surgical masks are made in Hong Kong and pass the filtration efficiency of ASTM Level1. A box of surgical mask includes 50 pieces per box.
