Lui Che Woo Prize and K.Wah Group jointly sponsored the Hong Kong Palace Museum Volunteer Program
With the establishment of the Hong Kong Palace Museum, Lui Che Woo Prize and K.Wah Group have previously jointly sponsored the Hong Kong Palace Museum Volunteer Program, in order to promote public understanding of traditional Chinese culture.

Promote public awareness of traditional Chinese culture
“The understanding of Chinese culture was enhanced, and it can be applied in our daily lives and work”
Another volunteer, Hui Ting Hui, Assistant Director of Corporate Affairs of K.Wah Group, also participated in this volunteer project. He mainly manages the group’s archives, historical research and collection care on a daily basis, but still felt that during the participation process, everyone’s understanding of Chinese culture was enhanced, and it can be applied in our daily lives and work. He gained valuable insight into the museum’s daily operations and gained access to some of the most valuable artifacts which had not previously been displayed through the volunteer program.
Lui Prize aims to promote youth development, culture and the arts, and other diversified activities in order to actively contribute to the Hong Kong community. This will be an invaluable step in the first step toward promoting communication and dialogue among world civilisations.
The volunteers received a one-month diversified training, covering professional fields such as Chinese culture and art, the culture of the Palace Museum, exhibition introduction, and museum operation.
