Reunion Stories

Class of 1980 & Growing Partners

Sep 20, 2015

What an afternoon! We celebrated the 10th anniversary of the youth mentorship "Growing Partners Project" (結伴成長計劃), initiated by our class at the Silver Jubilee reunion back in 2005, at a party held at Loke Yew Hall on September 20. Combining the event with our 35th anniversary reunion, where we reconnected with old friends and hundreds of mentors and mentees, added to the occasion! Come and visit the HKU Facebook page to see familiar faces at the party.


A commemorative book 《結伴成長 青出於藍》, which records the impact of the project, was also launched at the event. Click here for details and continue to support us!


"Growing Partners Project" has grown over the past 10 years, with some 700 pairs of mentees (青友 – from financially challenged families) and mentors (藍朋 – HKU alumni) having been matched and served. The mission, to build social capital through nurturing the younger generation, continues with the participation of many young and dedicated HKU alumni who have now taken over the baton.
