The Unlimited Potential of Youth

Microsoft is in the limelight at the Federation this year. As one of the Caring Companies we nominated for their Unlimited Potential program, they have made a generous commitment to Hong Kong, donating HK$5.6million in cash plus software, training packages and support services. The total value of their support for our young people's technical education is HK$15 million.

"The Federation is one of our treasured partners in the community affairs area, sharing our missions and values," said Teri Ng, Microsoft's Director of Law and Corporate Affairs, Far East Region. 18 fully equipped IT training centres called Cyber SPOTs will be set up within our Youth S.P.O.Ts to help to bridge the digital divide between Hong Kong's rich and poor. The one at Tsuen Wan has already trained 1000 young people who would otherwise have found great difficulty affording the courses.

"HKFYG is serving as a best practice showcase for next-generation wireless-enabled IT learning centers in implementing and sustaining technology training programs on the district level, with its advanced resources, curriculum and technical expertise."

Naturally, we are very happy to have feedback like this and look forward to keeping readers up to date with progress in implementing the three phases of the programme.
