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.

Seeing the Difference Made

We are excited to share with you that last week, we had a mid-evaluation sharing session with the participants from the 3 organizations. They shared how they applied their learnings to the daily organization's work such as designing activities, nurturing new members and outreaching work in the community.

In the sharing session, they shared their most updated work and activities, their organization's most exciting recent progress and their future work plan. At the same time, they were asked to cross-check what were the skills and knowledge they had used from their capacity building training. It was amazed to see all three groups can make good use of their learnings to strengthen the quality of their service, such as activites they planned were now more systematic; they knew how to make a realistic budget and finance control of each program; they realized the importance of program evaluation and designed ways to collect feedback from the participants; and more, they had raised some amount of donations from their fundraising event. One member shared, " we are more organized now, and everyone of us now play a part in the organization ! "  Another encouraging news is, one grassroots woman leader is now employed as a paid part-time organizer in their organization. She expressed that ," I am more confident in myself and I used the things I've learnt from the training in my work all the time ! "
 

Seeing their growth and positive change is the best evidence of empowerment ! Basic Core training on organizational management for the 3 marginalized women's organizations had completed 6 months ago, but the Capacity Building project continues with in-house trainers to guide their work and help them to integrate their learnings to their work in the organization. They are also preparing their DIY community project and to fundraise HK$10,000 to meet the matching grant of HK$ 40,000  for launching their community project.In the coming months, we are to raise enough donations for the matching grant to support their DIY community projects. We hope you will donate to this meaningful capacity building initiative as a recognition to their efforts and achievements made !

Young women are empowered!

we are working hard on discussion.
we are working hard on discussion.

After we gave training on crowdfunding to young women, they are so excited to try on their own to build their ability for the future. They learnt how to write attractive article, take pictures, and how to set reward on crowdfunding. With the help of HER Fund, they picked a local's crowdfunding platform to practise. Each of them will create their own project's page. As the crowdfunding platform required HER Fund to stop raising fund on other platforms (for this project) while using their platform to do crowdfunding, we have to stop raising fund through GlobalGiving at this moment. 

Thank you so much for your generous support! We will keep our good work!
