Happy International Women's Day! Read on to find out why we celebrate this day, and check out our little gift to empower domestic workers to achieve their dreams!
It's no secret that domestic work disproportionately falls on women, usually migrants. 98% of Hong Kong's 400,000 migrant domestic workers are women, most of whom come here to care for our families in order to support the loved ones they've left behind.
They contributed HK$98.9 billion to our economy in 2018 and their work enables parents to join the workforce. However, despite these huge contributions, 83% of our domestic workers are in debt, leaving them unable to plan or save for their futures.
This year and every year, on International Women's Day, we recognise these incredible women and the huge contributions they make - and we have a little gift to say THANK YOU for everything they do.
