This charity dinner is also a feast for character education. Yew Chung and Yew Wah believe “The foundation of education is the formation of character.” We have specially designed projects and activities to build up students’ knowledge and life experience. Students learn to assume responsibilities for their family, school, community and others. This is the motivation for Yew Chung and Yew Wah to hold the “Seeds of Hope” event annually.
