OUHK Voluntary Services and Cultural Tour in Yunnan



This six-day tour to Yunnan combines volunteer service and cultural exchange activities. It aims to enhance students’ understanding of China’s development and social problems as well as their appreciation of the Chinese culture.


Students participate in voluntary services, visits, and help the people in need during the trip. The targets of voluntary service are the children of rural migrants (隨遷兒童) studying in a privately-run (民辦) primary school in Kunming. Students conduct voluntary teaching, experience culture in Yunnan, and participate in daily communication with local residents.


Through lectures and services, students’ devotion to helping the less fortunate people can also be nurtured. The trip can also sharpen the students’ leadership skills and creativity through participating in the voluntary service.

To facilitate students’ learning experience in this trip, we have sought cooperation with the Hong Kong Red Cross’s International Humanitarian Service Leadership Programme. The Hong Kong Red Cross has provided mentors who are experienced in supervising the service trip and conduct trainings to the students before and during the trip.

In these six days, students have had a memorable teaching experience in the migrant school and their preparation before the trip paid off. They have also gained a lot from the home visits to migrants’ home, and greatly improved their understanding on contemporary China. The trip has also resulted in a good collaborative relationship between the OUHK and the Hong Kong Red Cross.
