May 30, 2019 (Hong Kong) ── Project WeCan today hosted a reception to thank project partners and volunteers at Government House, with The Hon Mrs Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, Chief Executive of HKSAR, as Guest of Honour. The event was well attended by representatives from 69 partners, volunteers, principals and students from 76 WeCan schools.

Project WeCan is a Business-in-Community (BIC) initiative aims to widen secondary school students’ horizons, enhance students’ essentials including creativity, character building, common sense and communication skills in order to equip them for future career. It is an open platform where each secondary school is partnered with a sponsor who would provide financial and volunteer support in a multi-year collaboration. Launched in 2011, Project WeCan has since expanded from a BIC project to a multi-sector-in-community network covering multinationals, professionals, universities, Consulates, health care services, alumni and retirees.

Today's event is a gesture of appreciation for the staunch support of 69 partners and over 2,000 volunteers of the Project. The project also provides scholarship to 330 WeCan students who are pursuing degree courses in eight UGC-funded universities.
