HER Fund

HER Fund was set up on March 8, 2004 by a group of women activists in honour of International Women's Day. Our main objective is to raise funds and give grants to support work by women, with women and for women in Hong Kong. Next to this, an important aspect of our work is to raise awareness of women's position and rights in Hong Kong. Our mission is mobilizing resources and investing in empowering women and girls to create change in communities for gender equality.

The capacity building project has proceeded into the 2nd phase where grassroots women participants will be having the 2nd round of training on Program Design and Implementation. In the past, they organized programs usually on a responsive and tasks-driven orientation. The coming training is to enhance their capacity to plan systematically on the programs that they are going to implement in the coming year, with a well thought objectives and able to integrate into their broader vision and missions of their organization. This training is especially unique as after the training, they will be given a practice opportunity to implement their self-designed program developed through the training with a small grant. We aimed through this way, they will be able to integrate what they have learned from the training into their actual work. 

The grassroots women's mutual organizations participating in this project are the least resourceful and marginalized groups in Hong Kong. Strengthening their capacities can help to bring their work and voices more visible in our society. Your donations can surely make a difference to improving their situation. Thank you !

Change is Happening!

After the first phase of the training completed, core members of the participating organizations applied the knowledge and skills they have learnt to operate their organization's activities. New leadership emerged as some active members felt more confident in themselves to manage the organization and were willing to  shoulder greater responsiblity to help developing the organization. They started to design their own fundraising activities and became more aware of developing a good system of planning and reporting within the organizations. Division of work amongst the committee members were more clear than before, and they could work more effectively as a team to carry out their programs and services. They also realized the need to nurture new members in their organizations and provide space for them to participate in helping the work of the organizations. The mutual help spirit within the organization became stronger, and the members of the participating groups are more committed than before.

The second phase of the training will start in March 2015 and we need your continuous donation to keep running the capacity building program. Thank you !!

Yes, they are empowered

The capacity building training continues, women participants from the marginalized sector gained knowledge and skills on organizational skills and knowledge. There were exercises in the training that helped them to integrate their learning with daily work practice in their mutual help organization. At the interim evaluation session, participants drew a self portrait of how she looked like now as compared to when she first joined the training.

The sharing on their self portraits was very encouraging ! One said, " I feel much stronger and confident to speak for myself ! I feel I 've learnt a lot useful things in this training " , another participant echoed, " the face in my self portrait is smiling because I feel so happy every time I joined the training, we get together to learn from each other and lots of fun ! " " Now I am more clear of my role as executive committee member in the organization and I learn to make decisions as leaders of our group. "

The training will continue to enhance their program skills in the next phase and we definitely need your donations to continue this project to empower marginalized women ! Please support !
