The UCC Guizhou, Mountain Experience Trip, was successfully held from 28th June to 2nd July 2023. With a mission to serve, a team of 47 students and five teachers embarked on a 5-day journey to the mountainous regions of Guizhou.
On the second day of the trip, the students visited a local primary school, where they led a series of games and crafts for over 300 primary-aged school children. In addition to this, they also visited the homes of needy families from the school, furthering their commitment to service.
Following the primary school visit, the team travelled to a secondary school, where they stayed for 3 days and two nights. During their stay, each UCCian was paired with a Guizhou local student – they attended classes, shared a dormitory room, and even went on home visits together. Cultural exchange was also promoted through evening performances.
All students expressed that the trip opened their eyes to the greater needs of those in the global community and helped them appreciate their privileges in Hong Kong. The trip ended with a sense of gratitude and thankfulness among all participants.
