How Far is the Dream from You

$6.6 may not even be enough for a bread, but $6.6 a day for 2 years can make a youth's dream come true.

Tori, who comes from a low-income family was fortunate enough to achieve her dream of all time, learning to play ukulele. Not only her perseverance to save $6.6 every day for 2 years helped, but 1:1 matching donation from the society also played a main role.

Tori is a lucky one. There are countless number of young people who are waiting for donations from the public to take the first step in their dream.   

The “Walk with dreamers”campaign aims to support the young people to chase their dreams by gathering public power. With the assistance of social workers, young people are able to explore their potentials and change their future with goals setting, saving habit establishment and mentorship scheme.
