A Program to Make 60 Dreams a Reality

“Switch on 60 Dreams” (the Campaign) is a program to jumpstart teen involvement in social action projects throughout the Hong Kong community.  A collaboration between Shun Hing Group and The Hong Kong Council of Social Service, the program encourages young people who want to create and live out their dreams to promote social inclusion in their communities.

The Campaign calls on secondary school students to unleash their creativity and philanthropic spirit, creating and submitting project plans that foster empathy and promote stronger social bonds between the young, the elderly and disabled. Sixty (60) project plans will be selected to receive a grant of up to HK$30,000 each. Participating students will have a chance to implement their plans and realize a dream of contributing to a caring and harmonious society.
