The Hong Kong Countryside Foundation Limited, under the Chief Executive’s Community Project List 2015/16, was granted funding by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust to conserve and restore a group of village houses, as the base for the operation of experiential learning programs and to provide accommodation for program participants. The group of houses will be operated as an integral entity. Profit if any from the operation will be applied to the maintenance of the houses. The restoration of houses will be done carefully and sensitively to retain the existing characters of the houses and village as a whole. New facilities will be installed to meet or surpass the current hygiene and fire safety requirements. The project will restore the 15 village houses in the initial phase, and ultimately 25 houses.
