With the theme of “Boundless Love With Intelligence”, Solve for Tomorrow 2015, a platform for tertiary students to develop App to help SEN children to integrate into the community, is in its 2nd stage. To sustainably nurture tertiary students’ potential, Samsung arranged for the 15 shortlisted teams to join Heep Hong Society Experience Tour and Miss Hunny Magic Workshop in August. Through interacting with Heep Hong SEN experts and SEN students, tertiary students, who rarely reach SEN, were able to deeply understand their needs. The tertiary students can therefore design more effective Apps and share their experiences with the public.

In order to raise the awareness of SEN children from general public and help them to receive timely support and training, Samsung launched a website specifically for the campaign. It includes information of the competition and Samsung’s donations. During learning the needs and difficulties of SEN children, you can also share your love and support the donation. Now, Samsung cordially invite you to visit and share the website, letting more people to recognize SEN students’ needs and help them better integrate into the society.

Along with the launch of the website, Samsung has invited famous host and artist – Mr. Sammy Leung and famous singer – Ms. Mag Lam as ambassadors. Mr. Sammy Leung even in video shooting. Through 3 different short movies, it witnesses SEN students overcome their difficulties and fulfill their dream.

Each time an individual clicks “I support” on the donation website, Samsung will donate HK$10 to Heep Hong Society(Donation cap - HK$300,000) to help SEN children to receive timely support and training.

The website also includes detailed information about the situation of SEN children, competition detail, latest update, winning ideas and so on.
