The Social Welfare Department (SWD) is now inviting interested schools to submit proposals for operating the Sixth Batch of CDF School-based Projects, which are to be launched in the second half of 2019. The closing time and date of submission of application is 5:00 pm on 29 April 2019 (Monday).
The applicant school must be a public sector school (including government schools, aided schools and caput schools) or a school under the Direct Subsidy Scheme. Except for government schools, the applicant school must have a "certificate of registration" under Section 3 of the Education Ordinance (Chapter 279). Through formulating and implementing the personal development plans, the projects aim to encourage children from a disadvantaged background to develop an asset-building habit as well as accumulate savings and intangible assets (such as positive attitude, personal resilience and capacities, social networks etc.) which are important assets for their future development.
