“Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams”
Hong Kong Unison believes everyone, regardless of race and ethnicities, should enjoy equal opportunities and lead rewarding lives. Ethnic minorities of Hong Kong can also realize their dreams.
This April, Gary Leung, a local visually impaired runner will compete in Marathon des Sables to raise funds for Unison to help expand our "Ethnic Minority Tertiary Education Scholarship" programme and support our work in policy reforms on education and race discrimination.
For every $1,000 you donate, an ethnic minority parent is empowered through our Community Support Programme. For every $20,000 we raise, you are enabling an ethnic minority youth to receive a one-year scholarship and participate in capacity building workshops.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
