WEDO GLOBAL, a social enterprise that advocates multicultural education, was established in 2011. We plan and arrange various activities, multicultural workshops, local walking tours and overseas experiential tours for instance, that offer opportunities for participants to interact with people of different cultural backgrounds. Being able to learn, reflect on their own culture and get inspirations from the processes, participants will eventually acquire enhanced cultural sensitivity and global vision.
Through our work, we aim to enhance cultural understanding of local Chinese on ethnic minorities, so as to reduce the negative perceptions and racial discrimination against ethnic minorities. On the other hand, we provide training opportunities for under-presented ethnic minorities. After the training, they will have the opportunities to be recruited as cultural ambassadors to conduct multi-culture workshops and theme-based community walking tour. It increases their job opportunities, confidence, knowledge and skills.
[Theory of Change]
WEDO GLOBAL believes that the root problems behind low cultural tolerance of Hong Kong residents are because of cultural misunderstanding and communication problems among different ethnic groups. If there are well-structured programs co-created and co-implemented with different cultural contexts (e.g. Chinese & Nepalese), then people from different ethnic groups living in Hong Kong could be connected and have a better cultural understanding through interaction, building a community which embraces and appreciates cultural differences.
We provide employment opportunities and training workshops for ethnic minorities living in Hong Kong. After the training, ethnic minorities will have the opportunities to be recruited as cultural ambassadors to facilitate / assist in cultural workshops and theme-based community walking tours.
Our team comprises of talents with diverse ethnic, culture and professional backgrounds. Together, we build a better society with diversity.
