In Hong Kong, there is relatively low cultural tolerance towards South Asians due to cultural misunderstanding and a lack of communication, leading to tensions and conflicts among different races.
WEDO GLOBAL envisions a racial-barrier-free society. It aims to enhance cultural awareness and understanding towards South Asians by launching WEDO Discovery - a structured responsible travel program co-created and co-implemented with regional coordinator(s) in different countries.
Before going to Outbound WEDO Discovery, a Cultural Awareness Session will be conducted to provide basic information of cultural awareness for participants to be ready to experience cultural difference.
Outbound WEDO Discovery includes 3 key aspects for participants to immerse themselves in South Asian culture: A) History; B) Nature and C) Community. Participants will have opportunities to visit various places to understand the history, interact with people in the community and experience how they live, eat, dress and travel around. This program aims to achieve a win-win situation to maximize the benefits to the participants as well as the local communities, minimize negative social impact, and help local people promote their genuine culture.
As a follow-up activity, WEDO Discovery @ HK is a task-based travel program for Hong Kong Chinese to experience and understand more about South Asian culture and be connected with South Asians in Hong Kong. Participants will have the chance to communicate and know more about each other for building a harmonious society.
WEDO GLOBAL provides a unique cultural experience to lead the real change and build genuine understanding among cultures.
