Access HK was set up in 2001 by a group of Hong Kong students at leading U.K. and U.S. universities who felt strongly about equal opportunities and were dedicated to improving the education of children in Hong Kong. 

Since its establishment, Access HK has organised a number of projects to help underprivileged children in Hong Kong.  Every summer, Access HK’s volunteers, mostly students studying at overseas universities, return to Hong Kong to give a free summer school to children in need.  Access HK also recruits young professionals to run a free weekend tuition programme known as “Teach an Hour” and a careers programme known as “A Day in the Life of…”, during which children are given the opportunity to shadow someone in a career in which he or she is interested.

Access HK works with primary schools situated in some of the most economically deprived districts in Hong Kong, and strive to boost students’ learning interest and English language skills.  To date, we have served over 1,000 children in need.
