WOFOO WHOLE PERSON DEVELOPMENT CENTRE

 

MISSION
We dedicate to nurture our students to be caring service leaders with wisdom, positivity, devotion and collaboration.

 

STRATEGIES
Wofoo Whole Person Development Centre is a platform for EdUHK students to develop themselves to become outstanding service leaders. While within the Institute, we collaborate with academic departments, our external partners include schools, NGOs, and universities from all over the world. Our connections with these bodies provide a wide range of learning opportunities to students for their whole person development. This is achieved by our three service foci.
