Sichuan Service Learning Trip

In June 2009, a concerned group of HKUST students went to Sichuan to help and support the earthquake survivors in the region. They volunteered to teach science in elementary schools and comforted some families. Having been deeply moved by their experience, our students inspired their peers to carry on the tradition and redouble the efforts by making two more trips to the area and revisiting their friends in need in January and June 2010. 

In 2011, modeling after previous successes, more HKUST students kicked off another project called “Light on Dreams” to inspired and encourage the Yi minority schoolchildren in southwestern Sichuan. Our volunteers committed themselves to building a long-term and profound relationship with the rural communities, transcending culture, distance, and language. As such, the story of Light on Dream will be filled with more heartening moments.
