Good and honest charity group
I've never given full scores on reviews but CDAC will be the first.
Although I've heard of Chinese friends and colleagues complaining of making compulsory / voluntary contribution to CDAC (compulsory or voluntary depending on the public or private sector), I, for one, am glad to make the contributions for it's a way for me to give back.
Back in the days when I'm still schooling, I attended the subsidized tuition classes organized by CDAC for I grew up in a poor family. It was a long time ago but I think tuition fees were like $8/month for 4 lessons, once a week, conducted at various school compounds around the island. They offer many different tuition classes for different subjects. Although I can hardly recall what I was signed up for, I only recalled being in the Chinese tuition class for I'm atrociously bad in the language. As far as my memory serves, the tuition classes weren't sub-standard but taught by qualified teachers.
Not sure if CDAC still have such good tuition class at subsidized rates but I view my monthly contribution as a way to nurture the new bloods in our population.
