Why this is important

This project is part of Enrich's 2021 fundraising plan. Your support in achieving our fundraising goals makes it possible for migrant domestic workers to achieve their dreams, with the skills and tools to escape debt, plan for their future and find greater financial stability. We receive no government funding and we do not sell or promote any financial products as part of our programme in order to provide impartial education. Most Enrich participants are self-funding, so our fundraising enables us to reach as many of Hong Kong’s nearly 400,000 migrant domestic workers as possible with life-changing education.

What we do

We believe that financial and empowerment education is the solution to the challenges faced widely by Hong Kong’s migrant domestic workers Most domestic workers arrive in HK in substantial debt due to recruitment fees. They are vulnerable to financial exploitation in the form of scams or unfavourable loans. Did you know the legal interest rate for loans is 60%? HK's domestic workers receive little support to save or plan for their own future. With salaries as low as HK$4,630 per month, domestic workers face enormous pressures on their finances - for example, to pay off debts, send large amounts home or lend to friends. As a result, they might work for decades with little or nothing to show for it. Our interactive workshops and activities run on weekends and public holidays, in native languages of domestic workers (Tagalog and Bahasa Indonesia), equipping them with skills, knowledge and confidence to escape debt, plan for their future and achieve their goals. We are impartial and do not sell or promote any financial products as part of our programmes in order to create a safe, trusted learning environment.
