Wu Zhi Qiao (Bridge to China) Charitable Foundation has two visions.
One is to encourage university students and volunteers to help improve the lives of underprivileged villagers in rural China by initiating and implementing footbridge construction projects.
The other is to provide an opportunity for volunteers and villagers to develop their mutual understanding and improve communication, so to foster friendship and build spiritual bridges.
In response to the latest development in Hong Kong and mainland China, Wu Zhi Qiao established the new development strategy of “Build heart bridge between HK-Mainland youth, provide multi-learning opportunities, improve villagers’ quality of life, support the sustainable development” in November, 2022.
Through the joint participation of the youth from Hong Kong and mainland China in countryside conservation in the two places, to demonstrate strategic deep-cultivation projects to improve livelihood of villagers and achieve sustainable development, including deep low-carbon transformation. In the meanwhile, we provide diversified learning experiences and encourage the voluntary participation of multi-disciplinary tertiary students to build heart bridges between the young generations of the two places, nurturing cultural inheritance.
To foster better communications and trust between the youth in Hong Kong and mainland China, jointly work to improve villagers’ livelihood in remote and needy areas and contribute to the achievement of sustainable development.
Our projects are accomplished by volunteer professionals and university teams from Hong Kong and mainland China. To the fullest extent possible, we build and reinstate village facilities in remote areas with locally available and sustainable materials and utilize local wisdom and low-carbon building concepts. Our volunteer teams work closely with the villagers to transfer practical building skills and knowledge of materials that will promulgate the concept of sustainability.
The Wu Zhi Qiao projects jointly built by various university teams with love, care and friendship. Those heart bridges will not wear away with time, yet become stronger and firmer.
