WEDO GLOBAL Cooperation Circle (CC) is a social enterprise that envisions a racial-barrier-free society where everyone can live in peace and harmony. The mission of this Cooperation Circle is to empower ethnic minorities; to advocate multi-culture education and to promote peace and cultural diversity. CC members enhance cultural understanding of Hong Kong Chinese on ethnic minorities, so as to reduce the negative perceptions and racial discrimination. It provides training opportunities inside and outside Hong Kong for under-presented ethnic minorities. There have been Pakistani, Indian, Nepalese, Indonesian, and Australian members coming from the Muslim, Sikh, Catholic and Indigenous communities. As their training takes six days, every participant is exposed to an in-depth cultural exchange and learning about each other’s cultures. After the training, the participants have opportunities to be recruited as cultural ambassadors to conduct multicultural workshops and theme-based community walking tours. This increases their job opportunities, confidence, knowledge and skills. Currently WEDO GLOBAL cooperates with Oxfam Hong Kong to offer multicultural education programs for educational institutes, corporations and other charitable organizations in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Sri Lanka.
