If you have a dream in life, then it’s time to share it with the world for the chance to achieve your dreams with the help of Toyota.

The only requirement to participate: Be serious about your dream!
This global initiative which will run till the end of 2014 also gives aspiring individuals in the Middle East a great opportunity to follow their passion and change their lives forever. This is a unique opportunity for any individual and all they need to do is follow the process outlined on the website (http://getgoing-toyota.com).

The selection phase involves three stages, namely Post, Screening and Support.
To enter the ‘Post’ phase of the challenge, participants are required to fill out an online form, providing details about their dream, their plans to make their dreams come true, what support they need to help achieve their dreams, what they are doing for achieving their dream etc. Giving more details will help improve the chances of being selected eventually as one of the 9 lucky individuals. Each new entry is added to the growing list of posts on the dedicated website, to allow online viewers to vote for a dream they would like to promote.
During the ‘Screening’ phase, the Get Going Challenge Office reviews the applications based upon fairness and accuracy, strength of the idea in the applicant’s dream and clarity of the vision leading up to realization, as well as the number of votes received from online visitors.
In the ‘Support’ stage, Toyota will arrange places and set up relevant opportunities to help the nine challengers achieve their dreams.
