促進教育基金會 - 簡介
A Foundation for the Future
With a commitment to expanding the scope and reach of education in Hong Kong, the Education Development Foundation Association has been providing opportunities for experiential learning across a broad social spectrum since 1995. EDFA is a non-profit, non-government organization that raises funds for innovative, real-life learning experiences for young people, the elderly and other people in need.
Our Vision for Education
We see education not simply as classroom learning but as a range of activities that help people to think, interact, learn, relearn and grasp opportunities. Knowing that there are many unsatisfied social needs in Hong Kong, we initiate custom-made projects to improve community life, one step at a time.
A Focus on those in Need
Everyone has learning potential but it isn’t always fulfilled. EDFA organizes activities for those who are least likely to have opportunities come their way, including underprivileged children, youth, the elderly and disabled people. At a formal level we provide grants, scholarships and awards that support educational advancement. In a broader sense we draw people into activities that help reshape their lives.
Assistance that Matters
Aside from hosting lectures, conferences and exhibitions, EDFA has recently:
- Co-organised a computer distribution program with Lenovo to help underprivileged school children take advantage of the government’s offer of a free WIFI service.
- Subsidized activities for the elderly such as singing and dancing to help retirees stay active and continue to improve themselves and their social networks.
- Helped to subsidize the Hong Kong entry in football’s Homeless World Cup, fostering a team spirit and a sense of personal hope.
Learning happens in many ways and in most areas of life. EDFA links people to opportunities – the rest is in their hands.
