Barrier-free School, a social enterprise start-up by six students from the Faculty of Science and the School of Chinese Medicine at HKBU, as well as the Faculty of Arts at the University of Hong Kong (HKU), aims at transferring knowledge to serve the community with special needs by developing an e-Learning platform and IT-related online courses to help people with disabilities so as to improve their knowledge and skills. The project does not only enrich the knowledge of people with disabilities, but also motivates student volunteers to serve the people in need, as well as to promote the accessibility of Information Technology.

Barrier-free School won the “$300,000 for New Venture Business Plan Competition” 2013-14 (social enterprise category) organised by the Business Entrepreneurship Support & Training (BEST) Programme at HKBU; and the Polytechnic University Goodseed Fund in 2015 held by the Hong Kong Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development (SIE) Fund.
