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) in the school years from 2011/12 to 2017/18. The ILSP ended on 31 August 2018.

To assist students from low-income families 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.

Non-profit-making organisations BGCA and WebOrganic will continue to 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” to offer broadband Internet services at discounted prices for purchase by eligible families across the territory.
