This summer, Falcon Program members joined a “Dialogue in the Dark” journey provided through Variety Hong Kong sponsor, HarbourVest Hong Kong.

“Dialogue in the Dark” is a life changing experience that takes participants away from a sighted world to complete darkness, moving through simulated daily environments with a cane, exploring the unseen, escorted by visually-impaired guides. It helps participants “see” the world from a different perspective, giving them a chance to challenge their senses: hear, touch, smell and even taste to ‘see’.

The youths were put beyond their comfort zone so they can learn to adapt, to grow confidence knowing they can overcome challenges and to develop empathy for those who have different kinds of impairments.


“I think this activity has inspired me a lot. Firstly, I am more likely to be able to put myself into the shoes of others, especially disadvantage people. Secondly, I think this is a collaborative process that combines the ability of all participants – teamwork is important in this hard situation.” – shared by one of the participants.
