Story of partnership
In 2018, Ying Wa College (YWC) joined the IDEA Project to bring students to visit the Cambodian Children’s Advocacy Foundation Organization (CCAFO) for the first time and YWC pledged a donation to support the project. Since then, YWC and CCAFO have been exchanging ideas on providing voluntary support to each other in the aspect of learning and teaching experiences, particularly for the Non-Formal Education Program of its Motherland Cambodia Education Center (MLC), where free-of-charge English programmes are providing for students in rural Cambodia. With the successful collaboration of the past few years, YWC and CCAFO are planning to formalize the communication with the partnership agreements including: 1) Staff Capacity Building; 2) Experience Sharing; and 3) promotion of cultural exchange.
