* 2nd Anniversary: Mid-April

We will celebrate our 2nd Anniversary in April this year. We plan to organize a photo contest in which the workcampers upload their workcamp pictures onto our facebook page and the public can vote the photos they like by clicking “like”. The workcamper(s) whose photos received more “like” will be the winners. We are still deciding about the prize...is ZUJI interested in the sponsorship such as air tickets?

* Hong Kong Workcamp:

1) Warehouse International Workcamp

The Warehouse Teenage Club (Warehouse) is a registered charitable non- profit making youth centre for youngster between the ages of 13 and 25. The Warehouse was founded in 1992 by the late Professor Frank White who, at that time, was teaching at the University of Hong Kong. He observed many Hong Kong's youngsters lacked a purpose in life and space to develop healthy hobbies, and loitered in the streets after school. Some even became addicted to alcohol and abused drugs. Determined to find a safe place for youth to develop healthily and holistically, Professor White and his like-minded associates championed the need for The Warehouse Teenage Club. The Warehouse is at present one of the member organizations of Wofoo Social Enterprises.
