who we are

We believe that all young people have the capacity to create their own future reality.

The core purpose of the GREAT DREAMS program is to provide young people up to the age of 18 years old with financial support and practical guidance, so that they can have the courage to dream, and to set their goals towards achieving a happier sense of self.

Great Dreams is managed by a volunteer committee of experienced professionals, who bring with them, a diverse skill set. All committee members are passionate about supporting young people and are motivated about enhancing their potential.

An independent committee assesses the merit of each application
