Give a Voice is about exploring social issues which impact our local and global communities. It’s a forum for discussion, sharing knowledge, and most importantly, lighting a fire of interest in people which I hope will motivate all of us to give our voice to the voiceless, and represent those whose needs are simply not heard or well addressed in our world today. In particular, I refer to the poorest and most vulnerable people in our world – whether this means the half of our world’s population who live on less than $2 a day, or the homeless person we walk by everyday as we go about our daily lives. Give a Voice has a global focus on vulnerable populations in our world, and a local focus on one of the most vulnerable populations in my hometown today – the homeless people living in the Downtown Eastside and in Greater Vancouver.

Give a voice is about giving your voice to some of the most pressing issues facing our world today. So leave a comment, share your thoughts, and give your voice!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for creating an accessible blog site dedicated for such important local and global issues. This is such an ideal avenue to converse and here how others view these issues like homelessness and also hear their ideas.

Can’t wait to have a online public brainstorm sessions to come up with impactful solutions!

Good work! Keep it up!
