TALK Hong Kong is a volunteer peer led group of women / femme survivors of child sexual abuse and adult sexual assault founded in July 2019.  We provide support group meetings and undertake research and public awareness on child sexual abuse.

We are not affiliated with any religious or government organization.  Currently we are self-funded with a very low running cost thanks to pro bono support.

TALK Hong Kong Limited (registered charity S88 91/19231) was incorporated in 2022.


Taura Edgar, Founder TALK Hong Kong
Founder + Director

Taura Edgar

I’m a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.  And like you, I was looking for a community of people to talk to.  But when my therapist asked me to research English groups I could join, I couldn’t find any!  When I told her, she knowingly suggested perhaps I should think about organizing something.  She had great timing!

In 2019 I founded TALK and began holding group meetings for survivors of childhood sexual abuse.  In 2020 we expanded to also welcome women who have been assaulted as adults and to take on advocacy work such as legal reform and research.

Why the group is called TALK

In my own process the act of talking about my experiences helps me move through them and understand my own mind better.  It has also helped some of my friends and family open conversations about abuse themselves.  It motivates me to think that the more we talk about abuse constructively, the more chances we have of stopping the repeating patterns of abuse and heal the after effects. – Taura

TALK looks to open the topic in society so that we can also move forward from silence to action.

Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach … It is not given to us to know which acts or by whom, will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good … One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul.
