Knowledge alone can enhance one’s own self, but wisdom can leverage this knowledge to bring blessings to others. With this in mind, Henderson Land (Henderson) collaborated with the Institute of Active Aging (IAA) of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University to create a platform, Mini-U for the Third Age Program, aiming to promote lifelong learning in Hong Kong and encourage senior citizens to learn new things and acquire more knowledge during their leisure time. Eventually, the Mini-U graduates could return to their communities and empower other elders in need, further contributing to societal betterment.
