Vox is Latin for voice and we’re finding our voices so others may find theirs.
We’re part of Voxtropolis (City of Voices) found in North America, South Africa, and the UK, with whom we share a common dream, but the dreams are also local dreams – every community being different. In Sacramento, the focus is on art for all ages, in Sheffield it’s stand-up comedy, in Johannesburg it’s music. VOXedinburgh is writing a story around everyone’s “superpowers,” the talents and abilities everyone has and anyone connecting with our community are invited to discover.
So far, looking overseas, we have sent mosquito nets to Africa; invested in small business people in Uganda, Jordan, and Palestine, who are unable to secure funding from anywhere else; and, supported students in Sierra Leone. In Scotland, we have supported a mental health charity and a refugees support charity. Most recently we’ve been investing in people through the micro finance charity Kiva.
