i-Future Teens International Foundation Limited was founded in 2016 by prominent Hong Kong entrepreneur cum philanthropist, Ms. Kelly Li, Mr. Kelvin Wu, Ms. Alexandra Qian and Ms. Polly Chan.

 

We were inspired by both IMC Weekend School, a Dutch-based United Nation winning motivation-directed children education charity program and IMC Sunday School (2009-2016). Starting from 2016, we serve 54 Primary 5 under-resourced students and over 150 alumni (IMC Sunday School) in Kowloon and Kwai Tsing district. In Septemeber, we recruited another 60 Primary 5 students to join our charitable program, i-Future Week
