Sponsorship

Help break the cycle of poverty by sponsoring ethnic minority youth’s tertiary education!​

Fewer ethnic minority youth pursue higher education than the general population in Hong Kong (28.1% vs 46.6%)*. According to our service users, ethnic minority women and girls usually facing extra barriers when it comes to further education – some say they are being seen as a “burden” to their families, and some are forced into early marriage. This is likely to be enhanced in this time of economic recession. ​
