Educating Hong Kong’s Next Generation about Children’s Rights at Hong Kong Academy

Hong Kong Academy

 

 

In May 2018 , PathFinders was one of seven community organisations invited to host an educational booth at Hong Kong Academy’s Service Learning and Sustainability Fair. The event aims to introduce students to local NGOs and raise awareness of the social issues they are tackling. 

Approximately 300 students aged 9 to 12 attended the fair. PathFinders taught students about children’s rights and some of the social issues children can face in Hong Kong. Students engaged in various activities to learn about the particular troubles faced by children born to migrant mothers, and the work PathFinders does to ensure every child has a fair start in life.  

We are very grateful to Hong Kong Academy for having us, and to all their students for their creativity and curiosity at PathFinders’ booth!

PathFinders in TIME Magazine

TIME Magazine published an in-depth story about the people PathFinders helps every day – ethnic minority, migrant women and their Hong Kong-born children who barely survive in a legal, health care, welfare and immigration void here in Hong Kong.

The piece is called: Living Without an Identity: The ‘Heartbreaking’ Plight of Undocumented Children in Hong Kong. It captures well the situation facing the women and children we serve.
PathFinders is both thrilled and humbled to receive such global coverage from an eminent publication. Thank you TIME for amplifying the children’s voices.

CLSA Investors’ Forum

With more humans on the move than ever in our history, no wonder that migration formed the key topic at last month’s UN Summit in New York.

Migration was also a hot economic topic in Hong Kong at the CLSA Investors’ Forum 2016, attended by 1,400 global investors and featuring over 60 speakers including academics Daniela Rus and Robert Gordon, Frank Luntz, actress Drew Barrymore and Nobel-prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz.

PathFinders, Enrich HK and The Helper Documentary spoke about migration. PathFinders is very grateful to CLSA for this opportunity and for their ongoing support via the CLSA Chairman’s Trust.
