Taiwan’s first incubator focused on entrepreneurial and innovation support for social impact.
Discover the transformative journey of the 6th Youth Public Welfare Practice Programme, where young talents from the Asia-Pacific region come together to acquire essential skills for social innovation.
Goals for good
In 2017, the Tzu Chi Foundation initiated the “FUN Big Vision for the Future” youth innovation programme. This programme is designed to connect diverse professionals and resources through public welfare information and empowerment modules, providing crucial support to social innovation partners. Our mission is to foster social welfare and establish Taiwan’s “Public Welfare Incubator” in alignment with the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Recognising the creativity and mobility inherent in young individuals, Tzu Chi aims to offer resources and platforms that facilitate communication and mutual learning to bolster aspiring young social innovators.
In partnership with Impact Hub Taipei, we provide training courses and mentorship from industry experts to empower these young individuals on their entrepreneurial journey, ultimately influencing the future positively. Our commitment is unwavering, as we strive to expand our efforts and employ innovative approaches to further the cause of public welfare and realise the beauty of our world.
