So I heard that over 90% of the schools built or supported by charitable causes in China were supported by Hong Kong people. People in Hong Kong, regardless of their income, helped give those in poor villages and those who can’t afford to go to school, an education.
Hong Kong people are always generous; they were he first ones who donated $1 million to the Canterbury earthquake. People in Hong Kong are used to doing street collections every weekend; kids as the collectors and adults pay.
Social entrepreneurships in Hong Kong run as a business. It comes in different forms such as restaurants and retail. Most of it with the aim to help those in poverty and unskilled to get a job or work experience.
Social entrepreneurships in New Zealand are about how we can great opportunities that meet social needs, particularly for the grassroots. Sometimes, it is about supporting existing not-for-profit or non-governmental organisations.
A group of my friends from Hong Kong is coming over to Auckland in April to share ideas on social entrepreneurships, including indigenous business developments such as Maori tourism.
The goal of my friend is to empower the young people to become leaders in social entrepreneurships. They give back to the community, not waiting to get supported.
I cannot wait for them to come to New Zealand and share their experiences on social entrepreneurships. If you are interested to support this group of young people when they are here, please contact me on email@example.com. Only more than happy to hear from you!
