About Us

This English Tutorial Project was started in April 2015 by a group of WYHK 1971 graduates to provide free English tutorial service to under-privileged students in Tin Shui Wai (TSW). Beginning with a group of around 80 students served by 12 alumni tutors in 2015, this free onsite tutorial program has grown to benefit over 600 students served by over 60 alumni tutors cumulatively upon the completion of its fifth intake in June 2017. 

After hosting three intakes and serving some 300 students, the project was endorsed by the Wah Yan One Family Foundation in September 2016 ( see attached letter from WYOFF) and became a charity to which all donations are tax deductible.
In December 2016 and with the help of 10 overseas and local alumni who either spoke or used English daily in their country of residence or profession, a second free online oral English program was introduced to help 60 Forms 5 and 6 under-privileged TSW students practice oral English online with a free apps with the hope to improve their performance in their upcoming oral English examination in the Diploma of Secondary Examination.

In October 2017, a new Life Planning program will be introduced to help TSW Form 6 students who will be looking for jobs after graduation. With little or even no family support and/or social connections, the desperately need help to find and secure jobs. By providing them with interactive career talks and job attachments, mentors in this new program will lead and enable the students to better understand the various occupations and choices available, increase their ability and competitiveness in hunting for jobs that match with their interest and personality , and hopefully help them strive for upward mobility in the long term.
