Financial Management is something always being a challenging topic to all organisations, especially small and grassroots organisations. These organisations may not have members or staff or volunteers to have an accounting background but they have to do it in a good way for their organisation sustainability especially during the economic recession period. 

With a partnership with a group of professional accountants, we are providing tailor-made financial management training to six women and sexual minorities groups to grow their capacity on financial management. During COVID days, we started to do it last week through zoom. However, we also arranged on-site technical support to grassroots women who are not good at technology so we hope that it is not an obstacle for them to learn.

Your continuous support is very important for us to keep our support to women's leaders and their organisations to keep advancing women's rights and gender equality. Please share to your friends and encourage them to walk the journey with us together by donating to support HER Fund!

Thank you and wish you have a healthy, safe and joyful year 2021!

best,
Judy Kan

Greetings! Happy Mid-Autumn Festival and hope you're doing well when you receive this update email!
Social distancing affected many leaders and they feel frustrated to work alone at home. On 28th August, HER Fund initiates ‘NGOs in Social Distancing’ online sharing session. We had 18 representatives from 14 organizations in the session! We wish to bridge different grantee partners, to share their experience, get inspired and learn.
The newly-met allys have contributed their expertise in grassroots women, young girls, caregivers, trans people and public sex education. Through sharing commonalities and exchanging skills, groups are connected to explore collaborations opportunities.
The positive feedback from our grantees is the best kick-off for HER Fund to build a stronger and closer community!
Without your support, we can't make it! Please spread the news and encourage your friends to join us together!
best regards,
Judy Kan

Thank you for your continuous support! As you may know, Hong Kong was affected by COVID-19 since late January and we have not recovered yet like other areas. The social distancing make our work even more challenging but it does not stop our mission to support the women's leaders.

HER Fund launched a three-part series of online workshops for our grantee partners to explore the core theme of Feminist leadership, "Power".

The aim of the workshops is to explore and reflect on being more conscious of power dynamics. Leaders from six organizations engaged in the online series and shared how they could be more can be more considerate and aware of their colleagues' feelings and needs, which leads to a better people-oriented mindset. The group practiced nonviolent communication, held in-depth sharing, and appreciated each other's characteristics, all the ingredients needed to lead with a feminist perspective.

Without your donation, we cannot provide all these workshops to keep women's leaders have the strength to resist and to have resilience capacity to face all challenges. Please help to spread the word and encourage your friends to support us!

Thank you very much and we wish you stay safe and healthy too!

best regards,
Judy Kan

We are glad to have new try in the past 3 years to provide funding to three organizations in three-year time to provide support to marginalized women who are threatened by intimate partner violence. We provided grants and capacity building to them. In January, we got together with our partnering community organizers to rethink and re-examine our experiences and understanding towards the concept of “bottom-up” on both individual and organizational dimension.

We’re also glad to have organizers from Asbury Methodist Social Service, Les Corner and New Arrival Women League coming to share their journeys of the three-year project “Empowering Marginalized Women Combating Domestic Violence”, and how the project can be led by teenage girls, sexual minority women and new arrival women, realizing “Power Transition”.

“When we return the right to determine back to the teenage girls, let them inform us the knowhow and lead our way, it’s empowering to see their power are massive as volcano”, said Fei-yu, Social Worker from Asbury Methodist Social Service.

It’s like mountaineering in bringing “bottom-up” into practice, during the journey, you may encounter severe and extreme conditions, but by opening up ourselves for possibilities, we will see changes led by the communities and the social impact radiated from within.

When there is resources, our capacity building can benefit to not just our grantee partners but also other leaders in the community so that we can influence more people and women's leaders to voice out for themselves like our grantee partners. 

With your continuous support, we can do more and bring the voices of marginalized women out loud! Thank you and please keep supporting us!

Thank you very much for your support and walk the journey with us!

With your support, we held practice sessions on mindfulness and non-violence communication during summer time. In this political uncertainty situation in Hong Kong, this sessions are very critical to all of us.

We finished the first level training on transformative feminist leadership to raise awareness of self-care, reflecting leadership style, learning basic non-violence communication. Now, we are going together to the 2nd level which will be from self to collective - bring the knowledge and skills back to the organizations. There are 6 organizations working separately and also learn together. 

This is just a start and we need more resources to make it better. Hope you keep to walk with us!
