The majority of the 390,000 Foreign Domestic Workers (FDW) currently employed in Hong Kong are of childbearing age. Many lack reproductive health knowledge and often need a healthy perception towards love and relationships. In addition, many are not aware of their maternity rights or lack the confidence to stand up for them. There is also a well held misconception that all children born in Hong Kong will receive permanent residency or citizenship status.
Together with our key strategic partners - like the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC), International Organization for Migration (IOM), Indonesian Consulate and Philippines Consulate - we seek to equip FDWs with adequate knowledge to empower them to make well-informed and planned decisions about relationships and a desired pregnancy whilst working in Hong Kong. This ensures every child born in Hong Kong can receive a fair start in life and a well planned future.
