Bosco NG Chung-lun
Bosco believes that multicultural education can bridge the cultural gap that exists in Hong Kong between the different communities. Having long been concerned with multicultural education, even before he graduated from university, Bosco established WEDO GLOBAL in 2011. Through workshops, walking tours and overseas experiential tours, WEDO GLOBAL seeks to narrow the cultural gap by empowering ethnic minorities to share their own cultures and stories with the local Chinese community. By engaging with each other, Bosco hopes a bridge of understanding can be crossed. Over the past year, WEDO GLOBAL has organised 105 theme-based community walking tours and cultural workshops to over 2,600 teachers and students from 73 school, with 42 ethnic minority young people recruited and trained to be cultural ambassadors. By advocating cultural harmony, Bosco lives out his passion to connect local Chinese and ethnic minorities to build Hong Kong together, embracing their common home as they share in their cultural diversity.
Jasmine LAU Ching Yu
Jasmine believes that charity is something everyone can be involved in, especially young people, and service too is a responsibility for the entire community. After Jasmine graduated from university, she set up Philanthropy in Motion (PIM) to enable young people get more involved in charitable giving. PIM also provides resources and programmes, opening up the world of charities. Since 2013, PIM has trained over 1,000 students in venture philanthropy and social innovation which has led to the expansion of over 15 social enterprises and non-profit organisations. This charity education is breeding a new generation of philanthropists. On a platform of charitable giving, Jasmine hopes that young people will rethink and redefine the meaning of success.
