What's New

The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer has implemented the Internet Learning Support Programme (ILSP) since 2011, and has engaged two non-profit organisations, namely The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong (BGCA) and WebOrganic, to provide support services for Internet learning at home to eligible families in the Eastern and Western parts of Hong Kong respectively.

Services provided under the ILSP will be gradually concluded before 31 August 2018.  After 31 August 2018, the service centres of the two Implementers will stop providing services related to the ILSP.  For contracts that are made under the ILSP and still effective, the Implementers and their Internet service providers will provide the relevant services until contract expiry without being affected by the end of the ILSP.  To support needy students to undertake Internet learning at home, the Student Finance Office of the Working Family and Student Financial Assistance Agency and the Social Welfare Department will continue to disburse the Subsidy for Internet Access Charges to eligible families.

Moreover, the two Implementers have accumulated experience in supporting Internet learning for students from low-income families after years of operation.  They indicate that they will continue to provide Internet learning support services to students from low-income families after 31 August 2018.  They have also set out respective service scopes and are currently drawing up the related details.  Among the services, WebOrganic will offer broadband services at discounted prices to low-income families across the territory and BGCA will provide computer check-up and computer technical support to their eligible members from low-income families.  Other Internet learning support services provided by the two Implementers include training and social support, etc.  For enquiries, please contact the Implementer that serves your residential district.  The hotline telephone numbers are as follows:

The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong (BGCA) has organised the iNurturing Programme for five consecutive years, giving out more than 100 computers to students in need every year.  BGCA organised the “5th i100 iNurturing Programme Kick-off cum Computer Presentation Ceremony” in March of this year.  A total of 150 brand new computers were given to eligible students, enabling them to undertake web-based learning at home, grasp the opportunity to acquire knowledge and make good use of the vast amount of learning resources on-line.
