Measuring Impact

Home   Measuring Impact

Since 2008, we have supported over 4,500 migrant pregnant women, mothers and children.
Every year, demand for our services grows significantly. These numbers
are likely to continue growing as more migrant workers enter Hong Kong each year.

One life at a time, we help mothers make informed decisions about their life.
We are successfully removing their children from risk and
are ensuring these children are part of safe and nurturing homes.
Beyond numbers, read about the lives of our beneficiaries and the impact we make.

 How we’re influencing local policies and practices
  • Migrant women who have overstayed their visas as a result of becoming pregnant and losing their employment are no longer turned away from NGOs and government departments because of incomplete documentation.
  • Migrant children can now be adopted in Hong Kong through Hong Kong’s Social Welfare Department.
  • Migrant children adopted in Hong Kong now have the right of Unconditional Stay, which entitles them to legitimately claim their place in Hong Kong and call it their home.
  • The time required for an undocumented migrant child to obtain a Hong Kong birth certificate has been reduced by 75%.
  • Hong Kong birth certificates are now certified by the Indonesian Consulate, ensuring that children born to Indonesian mothers in Hong Kong are recognized by the Indonesian government and have access to basic services and education in Indonesia.
