The University of Hong Kong launched a training programme on May 7, 2012 for the third sector to help upgrade their governance and services to the community.
This 32 million-programme, “Excellence and Capacity building for Entrepreneurship and Leadership for the Third Sector” (ExCEL3), is supported by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust as part of its funding to the HKU Centennial Campus Project.
