About SAYA
 
“Sowers Action Youth Ambassador Programme” (SAYA), founded in 2006, is a secondary-school-sector charity educational programme leading by the volunteers of Sowers Action. Until now, over 700 secondary school students have joined our program. Aiming at enhancing the leadership skills, ability of activity-organizing, our program conducts large variety of training programs including workshops, talks, training camps etc.

The exchange trip to China is one of our highlighted programs. To deepen students’ understanding and experience on the education issues in China, participants will stay in residence hall of the local high school and visit the local village for gaining the hands-on experience on the living of typical students in China. Besides, a “one to one matching”, assigning one Hong Kong participant to one local student to form pair, will be offered. Each pair is required to join all activities together during the seven-day-trip, we believed that the matching can create opportunities for cultural and academic exchange to further influence and enhance the personal growth of the participants. After the trip, a sharing session will be held to call for concerns and care to the rural China in the Hong Kong society.
