Special congratulations to Dr Kean Poon who has won a two-year grant of 2.86 million from the Mind Matters – A Hackathon for Social Impact, a campaign co-organised by HSBC Private Banking and Asian Charity Services. This initiative attracted over 200 applications, with only four of them becoming the eventual winners and receiving funding for their important projects.
Dr Poon's project entitled, "Mind and Study Matters: Tutoring and Counselling Programme”, consists of both research and service components. Her project aims to provide quality tutoring-cum-counselling support for students from low income families with confirmed or suspected mental illness.
An award ceremony was held on Friday, 25 September 2020.
