Our Program is solely sponsored by Sik Sik Yuen, providing biotech education to students at primary and secondary levels, and the general public in Hong Kong according to the guiding principle of “education for all”.
Sik Sik Yuen is a charitable organization established in 1921. Following closely the motto of Wong Tai Sin, “to act benevolently and to teach benevolence’”, it preaches the teachings of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism and organizes a variety of activities like sponsoring schools, giving free medical consultation and medicine, housing the aged, aiding the young in need and giving relief to victims of disasters, etc. Its sponsorship and establishment of Ho Lap College in 1969 was followed by 5 government-aided secondary schools, 4 government-aided primary schools, 6 non-profit-making kindergartens, and a natural education centre and planetarium – Ho Koon Nature Education cum Astronomical Centre.
