Service Learning at WIS – Crossroads

Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation serving global need. In a broken world that sees too much suffering, Crossroads aim to connect people in a world of need. Crossroads provide an intersection, literally a crossroads, to bring both together providing global distribution and global experience.

As a school, we run student led initiatives to help support our community partner with various item drives throughout the year. West Island School support our community project by donating quality goods which are then distributed these to people in need, in Hong Kong and around the world. Our students are offered simulation experiences in which participants step, briefly, ‘into the shoes’ of people facing global challenges: war, poverty, HIV vulnerability, blindness, environmental challenges, hunger, etc. 

Last year, West Island School committed to a huge amount of student support and raised over 100,000 HKD for our closest community partners.
