Knights Nurturing Foundation

International STEAM Programme (New)


Background of Co-organiser


The founding members of the Knights Nurturing Foundation were formed in 2016 and officially became a non-profit organization in Hong Kong in 2023. Our vision is centered around "exploring the world; fulfill oneself", and we are delighted to serve the society in particular to children and teenagers. Regardless of one's race, background, or religion, we offer interdisciplinary learning and experiences to achieve the goal of broadening global horizons, enhancing the 4Cs, as well as fostering positive values and attitudes.


Through our diverse range of activities, we can help not only the children and teenagers to discover their strengths and interests, but also more importantly, to encourage them to recognize their uniqueness, lead to positive changes and to shape a different path for their life.




Students will have opportunities to work with our colleagues for developing learning and teaching contents, organising events for students.
