A seedling needs tender care from its gardener, this is the true meaning behind the name of our organization where the seedling and the gardener symbolize the student and the teacher, respectively. As such, in addition to providing “hardware” we also provide the “software” to escalate teaching caliber. This training includes special education, pre-school education, English education, school administration skills, and student counseling knowledge.
As much as teacher training is important, its impact is not quite as visible, tangible or immediate as that of constructing schools, and fundraising effort is challenging. To ensure validity and relevance of our program, our content is developed jointly with education institutes, including the Education University of Hong Kong (formerly The Hong Kong Institute of Education).
