Hong Kong Unison is a non-governmental organization founded in March 2001 and recognized as a public charitable institution (IR File No. 91/7763) in 2005. In the past years, their services have expanded from handling individual cases to advocating policy reforms for ethnic minority residents.
Hong Kong Unison focuses its work on serving ethnic minority Hong Kong residents and their families.
Apart from permanent residents, ethnic minorities in Hong Kong also include foreign domestic workers, refugees/ asymlum seekers/ torture claimants and expatriate workers. There are other organizations with services catered to the latter three groups.
After years of evolution, Hong Kong Unison now puts most of our effort in Policy Advocacy work. That includes advocating for better Chinese language education policies for ethnic minorities, expanding ethnic minority students' post-secondary options in education, and fighting for equal access to public services.
Hong Kong Unison also operates some direct services, such as :
Promoting racial harmony and cultural sensitivity in schools;
Giving talks on cultural sensitivity to interested organizations;
Organizing career guidance programs for ethnic minority students;
Scholarships for ethnic minority students who wish to further their education.
