Creating jobs for older women: Hong Kong

“Nobody wanted to hire us!” we were told by women struggling to generate income here in Hong Kong. For those who are older or who live with disabilities, finding a stable job can be challenging in today’s competitive world. Happily, though, the story has a good ending for a group of women who have been trained and employed to cook and clean by a social enterprise group: one committed to creating employment and giving women a salary. They now work at a canteen near Hong Kong’s Polytechnic University and Crossroads donated the pots, pans and utensils they use. We provided not only the quality kitchen equipment but also the tables, chairs and other furniture required to run the new canteen. We were only too happy to supply what was needed to help empower more disadvantaged women.
