They were also given 20 hours of training to enrich their knowledge of pressing community issues such as the poverty gap and aging population as well as environmental conservation.
One of the awardees, Yui-hin Wong, worked for the Society of Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention, Hong Kong. He shared that it was a valuable chance to work with
social workers. Sometimes, he needed to work out office for events and activities and meet service users. “I learnt more about the local community and the concept of corporate social responsibility through this internship,” he said.
