Frequently Asked Questions ?

What is Achievas Academy (“AA”)?
AA is a self-sustaining social project to provide free self-learning resources to under-privileged students in Hong Kong. In other words, AA does not rely on subsidies from government or authorities to sustain its services. Instead it relies on donations and subscription fees paid by students who see value in our services and support our cause. Therefore, your donations and/or paid subscription are also your generous support to those students in need.

Who are eligible for the FREE subscriptions?
Any students who are currently supported by the HKSAR Government’s Comprehensive Social Security Assistance Scheme shall be eligible. Other students from low-income families shall also be eligible. All you need to do is contacting your social worker or social organisation to request AA for AA Social Security Coupon on your behalf.
