Wofoo Social Enterprises & Society for Community Organization
Wofoo and SOCO run football training and coaching sessions, the annual selection tournament, the Hong Kong Street Soccer League, and regular fundraising events for the homeless team which represents Hong Kong in the Homeless World Cup.
The purpose of their tournament is to gain public support, raise awareness about homelessness, and particularly to improve players’ self-image and self-esteem.
One in five people in Hong Kong live in poverty. Hong Kong has one of the widest income disparities in the world. High rents and property prices have hit the poor the hardest. Homeless people are often subject to harassment by the police (City University of Hong Kong).
