Achievements / Pioneer Projects Wu Zhi Qiao project is a social service and project‐based learning
opportunity by giving Hong Kong and Mainland university students the chance to set foot into the
remote rural villages, build physical bridges and facilities for villagers in need, and build spiritual bridges
of love and care. Under the supervision of university staff, student volunteer teams not only need to
understand local culture and environment, find resources locally, and adhere to design principles such as
using sustainable materials and the concept of environmental protection while constructing the bridge;
but they have to work hand in hand with the local villagers and transfer relevant skills and knowledge, in
order for the locals to undertake any maintenance work themselves in the future.

Since its establishment in 2007, the Foundation has mobilized 17 universities from Hong Kong, Mainland,
Taiwan and US to completed 17 bridge projects in Gansu, Sichuan, Yunnan, Anhui, Shaanxi and Guizhou.
Over these 3 years, the Foundation has provided project‐based learning opportunity to over 600 student
volunteers, improving the commutation and livelihood of 24,000 villagers in 24 villages.
