The Problem

Ethnic minority women and girls face many challenges to education and employment when compared to their male counterparts and Chinese counterparts.  

In particular, the Pakistani community is 3 times more likely to be victims of poverty than their Chinese counterparts. Poverty impacts education for all ethnic minorities who live below the poverty line. 

Our Work

Started in May-June 2018, Call Mira is a first-of-its-kind helpline providing support to ethnic minority women and girls in Hong Kong in English, Urdu, and Hindi. More importantly, all information shared with Call Mira is kept in confidence.   

An online resource portal with information on relevant topics supports the helpline. We believe all ethnic minorities, especially women and girls, should have a channel to get access to information easily and quickly. 

The helpline operates Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
