CLOVER, a campus-wide cultural diversity cum voluntary service programme in which local, mainland and overseas students at CUHK join hands in the provision of community services to needy people, concluded with a jubilant closing ceremony on 11 April. It received a funding support of HK$100,000 from the I‧CARE Programme in 2011, allowing some 70 CUHK students to study local social issues and organize a wide variety of services and activities for newly-arrived children, South Asian minorities, the elderly and the developmentally disabled, serving a total of more than 200 beneficiaries.

Organized by the Office of Student Affairs, CLOVER (Community + Local & Overseas students + Volunteers = Everlasting Relationships) encourages the student participants to make new friends with others of different cultural backgrounds to promote cultural and lingual exchange. It also helps deepen students' understanding of society and the problems confronting those who need help, cultivate the spirit of giving and sharing and develop a sense of responsibility to society. Volunteer teams formed by students from mainland China, Macau, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, France, Yamen and the US organized a wide variety of activities including interest classes, outings, fun days for different groups of service targets.
