OGCIO

The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer engaged two non-profit-making organisations in 2011, namely The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong (BGCA) and WebOrganic, to implement the Internet Learning Support Programme (ILSP).

The ILSP was officially concluded on 31 August 2018. The service centres of the two non-profit-making organisations have ceased provision of services related to 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 (SIA) to eligible families, to enable their effective use of the SIA and opportunities to undertake Internet learning at home.

From the 2018/19 school year onwards, BGCA and WebOrganic provide the following services to students from low-income families:

  • BGCA launches the “Community Digital Competence Hub” to provide students from its low-income family members with thematic computer courses, information technology experiential activities and free computer and Internet access technical support (such as computer check-up and repair), as well as counselling service provided by registered social workers on the ‘Healthy Use of the Internet’.
  • WebOrganic launches the “Broadband Service Concession Scheme for Students from Low-income Families” and a discounted computer scheme for students to offer broadband Internet services and computer products at discounted prices for purchase by eligible families across the territory.
