China Social Work Project Fund

China Social Work Project Fund

Keswick Foundation (KF) has been supporting the development of social work education in mainland China for over 20 years. The pioneer Master of Social Work (China) Programme, guided by professors from Hong Kong Polytechnic University with support from Peking University, trained over 230 social work educators scattering in different parts of China. Many graduates later became educators who lead social service development and train the younger generation of social workers to address social challenges.

To date, social work has become one of popular courses across universities. While these social work educators continue to be the pioneer in teaching and supervision in cities and rural areas, their experiences in undertaking research and practicum training tasks for the practice-oriented profession, remain limited.

Therefore, China Social Work Project Fund was set up in 2014 to further the capacity building efforts for social work educators as well as practitioners. With the support from the team of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the Fund has conceived 25 social service projects with collaboration with local universities and social service agencies nation-wide. They support various vulnerable groups in under resourced communities across 17 provinces and 23 cities. Thus far, three rounds of China Social Work Project Fund has been launched.

中國社會工作項目基金

中國社會工作項目基金
20多年來, 凱瑟克基金一直致力支持中國大陸的社會工作教育發展。由香港理工大學教授指導,北京大學支持的社會工作碩士(中國)項目培養了230多名分散在中國各地的社會工作教育工作者。許多後來也成為了培訓年輕一代的領袖,在內地發展出適合內地環境的社會工作服務以及教育下一代的社會工作人員,裝備他們走在前線著手解決社會問題。

社會工作現已成為各大學受歡迎的課程之一。儘管這些社會工作教育者繼續在城鄉開發教學課程以及提供服务督導,他們仍然缺乏對社會工作的這一實踐為主要的專業研究和實踐培訓的經驗。

為此,凱瑟克基金於 2014 年成立中國社會工作項目基金,為社會工作教育者提供深度的能力建設培訓。多年來,基金與本地大學和社會服務機構合作,孕育出25個社會服務項目,在17個省23個城市為不同的弱勢群體以創新手法提供服務。至今,中國社會工作項目基金已進行了三個階段。
