Firm to assist students

GIVING back to the community and helping someone in need is what PricewaterhouseCoopers and Moy/Houng-Lee sponsorship does.

These were the words of Jenny Seeto, a senior partner of PwC who said they helped students who had difficulty achieving their goals.

"What we wanted to do is to help someone who is really bright and deserving but maybe because of family circumstances it made it a bit hard for them to achieve their dreams," said Ms Seeto.

She said they only sponsored students whose parents earned less than $20,000.

"Family, parents or guardian who earn less than $20,000 joint income are our target," said Ms Seeto, adding education helped people step out of poverty.

"Education is always so important since it's one of the big steps for families that can walk out of poverty and into livelihood.

"Our target audience are students."

Ms Seeto said the scholarships covered tuition fees and book allowances.
