We can’t be fragrant without water

We can’t be sunny without water

We will be wilted without water

We will become the stone without water

Calvin Chin: One can produce more value when engage in some tasks he himself is considering meaningful

JM: Do you encourage students to go into the field of Social Enterprise? And Why?

Calvin Chin: Yes, I strongly encourage all undergraduates to consider SE. While each person has their own life pressures and may not be able to start a company. They can all consider joining an SE or volunteering for one. In fact, Qifang is always looking for young people to work with us, not only because we think they are smart, talented and bring a lot of good ideas, but also because we want to help encourage people to be social entrepreneurs. Why? Because while I think it is the most rewarding to be working on your own projects, to be working on something where you can really feel that the work that you do has meaning and can make a difference, this is even more the case when you are working on an SE. When you know that the work you are doing can make a difference for society, for our country, or even just for one individual or their family – that can inspire you to work your hardest, to be your best.

For example, a company that consistently donate to NGOs and/or provide services for societies’ wellbeing can be considered a Social Enterprises. However, the definition of Social Enterprise is different from the Western to China; due to the restriction of NGOs in law in China, a lot of NGOs are registered under the category of Social Enterprise. Richard and his co-workers are still trying to identify Social Enterprise in a proper way and understand how the Social Enterprises are being operated.
