Hong Kong Student Interns with Chicago Charity

The Tutor/Mentor Connection has been the home of Michael Tam, a 20 year old student from Hong Kong Baptist University, since late June. I encourage you to read Michael's blog, to see how he has come to know and communicate the goals of the T/MC.

We've been enriched by Michael's presence, and greatly aided by his work here this summer. We hope he'll continue to use his blog, and his time, to support the T/MC, even when he returns to Hong Kong.

That's the power of the Internet. It enables people from distant worlds to connect and build a shared commitment to one world.

The people who organize the program that brought Michael to Chicago found Cabrini Connections and the T/MC because of our internet strategy. We hope others will find us and that more students like Michael will intern with us, then take the T/MC ideas back to their own cities, states and countries, where they will continue to work with us, but with a focus on their own geography.

Thank you Michael for the time you have spent with us and for your many contributions.

Daniel F. Bassill
President, Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection
