Our Impact

We believe education should be impactful, accessible and tailored to domestic workers’ needs.
“In 13 years of working in Hong Kong, this is the only time I understood how to manage money, savings and business, to handle family and employers.”

Impact is very important to us. After every workshop or programme, we conduct impact evaluation to see how we can better meet migrant domestic workers’ needs, based on their feedback.

In December 2017, we were pleased to release ‘Financial Literacy: What is the Impact?’, the very first year-long external impact study of our financial and empowerment education programmes for migrant domestic workers. The study was conducted by the Chinese University of Hong Kong and used both quantitative and qualitative methodology.

The findings are an exciting revelation into financial literacy as a fundamental tool for empowerment and financial inclusion.
