Smart Kids, Smart Learning

Self learning is part of our lives, especially so for those who lack resources.

The Hong Kong Racehorse Owners Association Charitable Foundation has joined with the HKFYG, to enhances independent learning of underprivileged children and youth. The "Smart Kids Learning Project" has been launched in November 2019, providing one-year free learning support in Sha Tin and Tin Shui Wai for 100 Primary 1 - Secondary 3 students who have difficulties at school. 

The multifaceted Project comprises of tutorial classes, online tutoring, the Community Classroom Online Channel, S.M.I.L.E. Corners [Space for Motivation, Inspiration and Learning Efficiently] at two Youth SPOTs and the talent shows at the end of the Project. In addition to the Foundation's sponsorship, dedicated volunteers will also take part to facilitate the participants to acquire learning skills.

Working together with community partners ensures that a Project like this has wide support, giving children and youth a chance to excel. Give us a call if you want to help!
