Opportunity Bank is a HUB which connects ethnic minorities with resources such as job & network, upskilling training courses, scholarships as well as social & healthcare services in a one-stop, easy to access platform. Through a collaboration model with different service providers: corporates/SMEs, funders, schools, etc., Opportunity Bank seeks to push for greater transparency and accessibility to information, better allocation of resources and will identify service gaps.
The objective of this initiative is to empower and support the ethnic minority community by enhancing employment and education, reducing poverty, bettering quality of life as a result as well as improving upward mobility.
Services at a Glance
Website & App
Opportunity Bank seeks to push for greater transparency and higher accessibility to information. Therefore, Opportunity Bank is creating a centralised HUB which stores various resources and information that ethnic minorities in Hong Kong will find useful.
We are already planning to produce 2 deliverables in this initiative: Opportunity Bank Website Portal and Opportunity Bank App Portal. The website is planned to be launched in Q4, 2020.
While the 2 platforms are working in progress, it does not stop us from providing you with services. To keep up-to-date and know what opportunities that you may enjoy, please do follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

Job & Network
Job opportunity is one of the core focuses under Opportunity Bank – being the bridge between ethnic minority job seekers and companies who have vacancies. There is no better way to enhance one’s quality of life and social mobility by having a job, unleashing one's potential and contributing to society.
Networking is an effective means to help you develop and improve your skill set, stay on top of the latest trends, keep a pulse on the job market, meet prospective mentors, partners, and clients, and gain access to the necessary resources that will foster both your personal and career development.
Please fill in the information in this form to provide us with some basic information and a member of our staff will contact you.
INetworking isn't merely the exchange of information with others. Networking is about establishing and nurturing long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with the people you meet.
Opportunity Bank is organising an Ethnic Minority Networking Event Series. Please do follow us and register for the events!
"Knowledge is power" - a better education is the key to a better quality of life. It is necessary that everyone keeps enriching their skillset to handle different matters in life – from job seeking, interviewing to leisure. Opportunity Bank is partnering with various organisations to produce both online and in-person training courses.
Better education is the key to better quality of life and upward mobility for both the children and their families. Opportunity Bank is organising an Ethnic Minority Scholarship Fair, to raise awareness of scholarships available to the ethnic minority community as well as to provide scholarship providers with easy access to a pool of talents.
Social and Healthcare Services
Learning from The Zubin Foundation’s work, we understand that our ethnic minority may not be aware of the social and healthcare services to which they are entitled. They also express having financial difficulty in affording the services. The Opportunity Bank platform can provide support in referring the ones in need to the relevant service providers.
Useful Information and Resources
On the Opportunity Bank platform, we will also put up various useful information and resource.
