Inspired by Serial Social Entrepreneur Mr. Erwin Huang and Principal of Baptist Rainbow Primary School Mr. Chu Tsz Wing, DreamStarter is a new community initiative that makes dream projects initiated by primary school students come true, through raising awareness, mentoring, crowdfunding and crowdsourcing support. All projects aim to bring real changes to the community through innovative solutions from various perspectives including social, environmental, technology and more.
Schools participating DreamStarter Program are taking pioneering step in Hong Kong education to adjust class timetable in order to allow students focus on their DreamStarter projects after lunch hours. Through this experiential learning journey, we hope to foster students’ ability to be creative for social good, to communicate with different stakeholders, to have confident when solving problems, and to learn the entrepreneurial spirit and apply in their lives when they face challenges in future.
The 1st DreamStarter Kids Pitching Day will be held on Nov 1, 2016. 31 groups of students from our pilot school Baptist Rainbow Primary School will introduce their dream projects to the public for the first time and seek for support from the community. Great minds from business, education, social enterprise, and the Government are invited to join and show support to give hope to our young generations who dare to dream big for social good.
