HKBU Village CARE Campaign Ethnic Minorities Engagement Grant (EMEG)

OBJECTIVES

Constituting a relatively small student population on campus, EM students face challenges in keeping up with their peers and in having equal learning resources mainly owing to their limited Chinese language proficiency. With more educational resources for EM students to receive trainings, join diversified co-curricular activities as well as chances for them to initiate programmes for the community, it is hoped that the under-represented minority youth could improve their well-being and social inclusion through increased mobilization within the multicultural education environment.​
