Dialogue in the Dark Jockey Club Dialogue Academy

Supported by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the Hong Kong Jockey Club Dialogue Academy is launched accordingly which consists of three main sections:
- Dialogue with Family aims at enhancing family harmony and coherence through a series of impactful experiential programmes to targeted beneficiaries.

- Dialogue Online aims at creating an online and live broadcasting platform to engage PwD and potential employers.
