Remarks: The annual sponsorship fee for student is reviewed and determined regularly by the volunteers of student sponsorship group.

Apart from sponsorship, volunteers make visits to the sponsored students regularly to give them support and encouragement to nurture their growth and character development. In some areas, volunteers make visits to senior three students before entrance examination of universities/tertiary institutes to encourage and relieve their stress.
