In the 150 years since its founding, Tung Wah has offered free medical services and disaster relief to the people of Hong Kong, while education has also been one of its key services. More than a century ago, Tung Wah had already established free schools for impoverished children, so they could receive an education and contribute to society when they grew up. Tung Wah’s education services have kept abreast of the times: from the free schools in the late 19th century and free schools for girls in the early 20th century to the kindergartens, primary schools, secondary schools and special schools established after the Second World War as well as tertiary institutes in recent years to meet the needs of society. This talk will discuss in detail on Tung Wah’s work in education as well as its correlation with Hong Kong’s social, economic and urban development.
