Reimagining coffee grounds to support the autistics
Often time, the desire of people with autism to pursue a meaningful career is not understood or catered for. Grounds to Crops is a new social innovation project by AnAn International Education Foundation, hoping to connect the value we can uncover from coffee grounds with this need.
This project is our first social startup as we strive to adopt more new thinkings to serving this community. We believe given adequate training, people with autism are capable of more sophisticated responsibilities, hence a more meaningful career over time.
From Grounds to Crops, we hope to inspire people in Hong Kong to enjoy the fun of growing, cooking and eating mushrooms for a good social cause.
We are now raising fund on the crowdfunding platform FringeBacker. Our goal is for HK$120,000 in the next two months to kick start our project. Please read our story and be our backer. We thank you for your support.
