CKYC 2018 Summer Service & Learning Program in Rural China

The Summer Service and Learning Program in Rural China (SSLP) was initiated by Tsinghua University, Beijing from 2006. Every summer, Tsinghua University and Tseng Hin Pei Charity Fund recruit 180 Tsinghua volunteers, 150 volunteers from other regions and countries, who show a sincere commitment to voluntary work to be dispatched in 30 teams and conduct services in 30 counties throughout rural China.

This summer, Choi Kai Yau college will send 8 students representing University of Macau to provide various services in different rural counties in China. In each county, the team will consist of one Tsinghua teacher, four to five Tsinghua students, two CKYC students, and three to four volunteers from Hong Kong, Taiwan, US or UK.

The volunteers provides diversified services to the local students in those rural counties, including English/Math/Science teaching, culture lectures and culture exchange activities. The volunteers will not only bring knowledge, confidence and hope to the locals, expanding their horizons of the world, but also, this “cultural immersion” allows volunteers to understand more about the people and lifestyles in China as their motherland. The CKYC students will constantly summarize and share learning reflections among themselves and volunteers from other regions and countries.

蔡繼有書院院生於暑期到中國內地扶貧教育地願服務夏令營

珍惜光陰、善用暑假,澳門大學蔡繼有書院院生一行8人於2018年7月11日至31日參與由北京清華大學組織的中外大學生暑假教育扶貧社會實踐活動。8位學生與來自國內、港台與國外的志願者先到清華大學培訓約一個星期,在兩週內先後到達30個中國內地各貧困山區進行支教約兩個星期,最後回到北京做總結會議。

此次活動除了開展常規科目教育,還舉辦了英語演講、文藝熏陶,港澳台文化歷史介紹等第二課堂歌唱,旨在培養孩子們的獨立思考、團隊合作能力以及批判性思維,並傳授更多外界的知識,拓寬他們的視野。

在這短短的三個星期中,蔡繼有書院院生不僅給當地孩子帶來了知識和眼界,也從孩子們和一起支教的各地隊友身上收穫良多,看到了與澳門不同的風景,感受到不同的文化,隊員們對支教的意義與自身的社會責任有了更深刻的理解,對社會和人生也有了更多思考。
