Led and delivered by Migrant Domestic Workers (MDWs) for MDWs, our Train the Trainer workshops seek to establish a sustainable outreach model that empowers community leaders to become PathFinders' Ambassadors and educate their peers about Maternity Protection and the importance of making well-informed life decisions while working in Hong Kong.
Each PathFinders' Ambassador is provided with bespoke training to enable them to professionally deliver our messages with confidence, accuracy, confidentiality and in a way that is culturally-sensitive.
To expand our outreach and amplify our messages, PathFinders' Ambassadors are mobilised with tailor-made materials (e.g. Resource Card, Ambassador Guidebook) to hold outreach events and workshops within the community. They are required to regularly update their PathFinders' Manager on sessions conducted, numbers of participants reached and evaluation highlights so we can measure the success and impact of our new initiative. Collectively our PathFinders' Ambassadors can reach wider and deeper than we can within the MDW community, helping us to significantly scale our outreach.
Ambassador Newsletter 2020 is available here.
Meet our Ambassadors
It's been my passion to help the community ever since and I love doing it. “Train the Trainers” workshops conducted by PathFinders helps a lot, not only for me but our community as it broadens and equips me with more knowledge to better understand our rights as a migrant workers that I may use in helping and assisting my fellows and it has made me become a more effective and productive community helper. Thank you so much Pathfinders.
To be one of the chosen few to be a part of the “Train the Trainers” programme is a great honor.
Learning and to have a better understanding about Migrant Domestic Workers’ maternity rights is a privilege. And to impart what I have learned from the training to my fellow domestic workers in need and in vulnerable situation is life changing. Be informed and stand firm for our rights.
As one of the “Train the Trainers” Ambassadors I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Good leaders are trailblazers, making a path for others to follow great leaders. They inspire people to reach higher, dream bigger and achieve greater. Perhaps the most important leadership skills you can develop is the ability to provide inspiration to your team.
I’m not a mother, but so happy to be in the “Train the Trainers” programme to give a voice to the babies and mothers PathFinders supports. To provide strength and support for women suddenly plunged into motherhood as “accidental mums”, and ensure they understand they have the same rights as married mums.
To encourage them to embrace motherhood not as an accident, but as a blessing. To tell them they’re not alone in a foreign land, PathFinders and it’s Ambassadors are with them.
Joining the programme equipped and empowered me with the right knowledge and correct information regarding our rights. It opened my eyes to the needs of my fellow migrant workers that fueled and drove my inner passion to help and reach out to my fellow migrants in the best way I can.
The programme helped me to understand more about my rights as a female migrant worker in HK and about protection available if a migrant worker experiences an unplanned pregnancy. I also feel much more confident to share this knowledge with other friends.
