Wu Zhi Qiao (Bridge to China) Charitable Foundation is a charity registered in Hong Kong (no: 91/8739) in 2007. Through encouraging volunteers, especially university student volunteers from Hong Kong and Mainland China, to design and build footbridges and village facilities in remote and poor villages in the Mainland with green concepts, we aspire to:
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.
To foster better mutual understanding between the young people in Hong Kong and the Mainland for sustainable development in underprivileged areas of China and beyond.
Our projects are accomplished by volunteer professionals and university teams from both Hong Kong, the Mainland and overseas. To the fullest extent possible, we build footbridges, eco-dwellings and small-scale facilities with locally available and sustainable materials and utilize local wisdom and green 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.
