Have you ever thought of creating a noodle-making machine for the disabled to use with one hand? Since its inception in 2010, Dignity Kitchen (廚尊) is Singapore’s first hawker training school for disabled and disadvantaged people and the first food court in the world to attain the ISO 22000 certification for food safety management system.
Dignity Kitchen’s mission is to change society’s perceptions of these less fortunate people, and restore dignity to them through vocation. It provides on-the-job training to the disabled and places them in jobs by operating a fully functional, regular food court open to public. It has trained over 300 trainees and received four awards including the President’s Challenge Social Enterprise Award 2015 (Singapore).
Mr Koh Seng Choon, Founder of Dignity Kitchen, is coming to HKBU from Singapore to share his journey of building Dignity Kitchen from scratch to a full-scale social enterprise. You will get to hear his exclusive stories filled with challenges, trials, opportunities and hope!
