ABOUT

THE WANDERING VOICE

The Wandering Voice is a social enterprise based in Hong Kong, dedicated to promote employability, competitiveness and upward mobility of marginalized communities, especially vulnerable youth through our innovative programs.

 

We come from different backgrounds, but with a common goal to connect different stakeholders and provide opportunities to those in need. As youth ourselves, we want to create a community where young people can belong to, and inspire more to establish social impact for the society.
