Since 2011, the Mustard Seed Foundation has been supporting our project in the following ways:
- The Program Activities Grant from Mustard Seed Foundation has enabled City-Youth Empowerment Project to find ways to enrich the underprivileged children’s lives through extra-curricular activities, creative learning workshops, community outings, training camps, etc. These activities are made possible due to this generous support, to various groups of children and youths who otherwise would not have the access to such resources.
- By sponsoring an award grant to provide 5 award prizes to our outstanding volunteers, to further cultivate and acknowledge the qualities that are quintessential to building an effective service learning model. Each of the 5 awards is complemented with a grant of $4,000, together with an available fund of $2,000 for the awarded volunteers to design and implement a volunteer-related activity for our service recipients in the community
