Study Trips

Each year, World Vision Hong Kong organises study trips for schools and churches to take a closer look at the needs of the poor around the world. These trips provide opportunities for participants to interact with the poor and gain a new perspective of their lives.
Organise School Talks or School Famine before joining a study trip to deepen students’ understanding on poverty.
