Social Entrepreneur Series - Companions in an inclusive community [Community Participation]
“Misunderstanding easily leads to prejudice.” When they were students, Bosco Ng and Eva Wong participated in international events and made friends with people of various ethnic groups.

In 2011, they co-founded WEDO GLOBAL to train people of diverse race to be community tour guides who would lead the participants to explore the lives and culture of difference races, fostering mutual understanding. The two walk with the people of diverse race and witness their transformation from shy persons to confident speakers. Bravo!
Look forward to the day when people of diverse race shine in each and every field.
