Achievements / Pioneer Projects Achievements:

1.Our “Women’s Helpline” which was launched in May 1981 is the territory’s first ever hotline service set up to serve women seeking help. Women’s Helpline provides callers with emotional support, legal knowledge, gender equality awareness, sexual education, medical knowledge and guide to social resources available.
2.Free Legal Advice Clinic has been in place since 1992 and aims to empower women in legal matters by way of enhancing women’s capacity in handling their own marital crisis and increasing women’s awareness of their rights as individuals. The volunteer lawyers are members of the Free Legal Advice Scheme of the Duty Lawyer Service.
3.Sponsored by the AIDS Trust Fund, we have been implementing projects to promote AIDS prevention education among women since 1998. The projects aimed to link up the community’s health systems, women and others in the community to promote sexual health among women and spread messages across for the prevention of AIDS.
4.We set up Women Green Life Workers Co-operative, Women’s Healthy Living Workers Co-operative and Women’s Eco-cleaning Team to promote women’s economic empowerment. Women Green Life Workers Co-operative is the first registered workers’ cooperative in Hong Kong.
5.In 2001 we set up the Hong Kong Homemakers’ Alliance to address the needs of homemakers, affirm the value of household labour, support women in their efforts at self-development, and affirm the status of housewives.
6.In March 2005 and 2006, we held the “I have a Date with the Legislative Councillors – Women’s Political Exchange Forum” respectively. We encourage women to exercise their civil rights and actively make their voices heard in matters of the government’s governance so as to put their collective power to use and bring about positive changes for all.
