[Multiculturalism in Action 2015-2016] FUN with Interculturalism - Equal Opportunities Day

FUN with Interculturalism, a community outreach project launched by the Multiculturalism in Action (MIA) Project this year, participated in the Equal Opportunities Day on 21 May, 2016. An Exhibition on the South Asian Communities in Hong Kong including Indian, Nepali, and Pakistani cultures was displayed. Our volunteers served as docents to explain the details to visitors, including residents from Fairview Park, Yuen Long, and the vicinity.
