  • Networking Lunch: 《讓孩子認識自己》成為自己的好友
    BB由出世開始,就需要學習很多事情。初出生的嬰兒會學懂分辨爸爸與媽媽的氣味,一歲孩子會學行,兩歲孩子會說話,五歲孩子會畫畫,八歲孩子會懂得溝通的技巧,十歲孩子能更深入了解這個世界的運作。但在這學習過程中,孩子可能會忘記學習一件重大的事,那就是學習怎樣來做自己,如何明白自己的感受,明白自己的思想及明白自己與這個世界的聯繫。 當孩子對自己有深入的了解時他便會有能力來更深入了解別人。而在了解自己的過程中家長的角色是孩子的支柱及榜樣。 主講嘉賓: 關彥欣 兩位孩子的母親。當小學老師已有10年,擁有兒童及家庭教育碩士學位,以及蒙特梭利3-6和6-9年齡組別的認證。 一個午餐交流,讓你認識不同的朋友,並讓孩子認識自己 。更可以藉此了解更多有關香港創業媽媽的工作。 日期:2022年1月11日(星期二) 時間:下午12:30 至下午 2:30 地點:香港旺角希爾頓花園酒店 中式午餐款待 $380 敬請 賜復+852 9248 4861

    #聽她的話: 一位少數族裔單親媽媽 Embracing Motherhood is the theme for Hong Kong Momtrepreneurs in 2020. The beneficiaries of MOMs4MOMs Fellowship Program are interviewed to share the stories of #EmbracingMotherhood. One of the EM beneficiaries, Ar See had share her stories and thoughts of #Embracing Motherhood: 《母限》是香港創業媽媽2020年的主題,訪問了Moms4Moms媽媽企業家培訓計劃的獲益者並分享了關於《母限》的故事。 其中一位少數族裔的獲益者-阿思,分享了她的故事和對《母限》的想法。 阿思是香港土生土長的巴基斯坦裔女性。由於她少時不愛讀書,她小學便輟學,而她的父母早早就為她安排婚姻。不過,她的婚姻並不美滿,育有兩兒的她常常遭受丈夫家暴。為逃離家暴,阿思23歲時決定離婚。不幸的是,她年少離婚後長年受社群排擠,「啲女仔朋友怕我搶佢地老公,就唔再搵我。的確佢地有啲老公古古怪怪,成日響太太背後打俾我。」 被社群排擠又不識字,單親媽媽阿思多年來把孩子帶大實在十分艱苦。不過,好學、愛笑的她還是十分積極,不時做義工和學習手工藝、美容等技能。現時兒子也終於能夠自立,不過她心中還是有一點遺憾,就是她上過的手工藝和美容進修班往往都要通過筆試才能得到證書,因此不懂得讀寫中、英文的她上完課程後總是無法考到資格,進而無法進入她真正心儀的美容行業。 「好多南亞裔女性都同我一樣不識睇同寫中文同英文,好多時通過唔到啲進修班,希望出面嘅課程都可以理解下我哋唔識睇中文,搵方法俾我哋去學習同參與。好多南亞裔女性係想出去做嘢,不過受中文讀寫限制咋。」阿思用流利的廣東語說,為她的社群發聲。 了解更多有關Moms4Moms媽媽創業家培訓計劃,資助一位母親免費學習:www.hkmomtrepreneurs.com/moms4moms 以上由Rolling Books「滾動對話」的同事進行訪談和撰寫。圖片並不是阿思她本人。 Ar See is a Pakistani woman who was born and raised in Hong Kong.

  • Why #EMBRACING MOTHERHOOD in 2020? 為什麼要在2020年擁抱母親?
    Often times we define motherhood being very independent from professionalism where work and family should also be separated from each other.   Should motherhood be a inevitable part of one’s life?   Should it be integrated to all aspects of our lives?  Should motherhood be there without any boundaries? 通常,我們將母親的角色和她的專業不能相提並論;在把工作和家庭也彼此分開。 然而「母親」應該成為生活中不可避免的一部分嗎? 是否應將她融入我們生活的方方面面? 「母親的角色」應該有沒有界限呢? In 2020 we are bold to take a strong stand at Hong Kong Momtrepreneurs to redefine the role of motherhood in an Asian perspective.  Whether it is inside the house orContinue reading “Why #EMBRACING MOTHERHOOD in 2020? 為什麼要在2020年擁抱母親?”
  • In celebrating our 2nd anniversary…
    Motherhood presents all sorts of opportunities and challenges, as well as visions and assumptions of what being a ‘mother’ means. From being addressed as the CEO, CFO, chef and driver of the household, to being considered (by some) the front line of children’s upbringing, mothers face all sorts of filters and pre-defined notions that ‘shape’ how we see ourselves, and how others see us. According to the Research Office of the Legislative Council Secretariat (2019), whilst the size of local female workforce in Hong KongContinue reading “In celebrating our 2nd anniversary…”
  • How would you define Motherhood?
    #EmbracingMother ~ without boundaries SEMINAR • WORKSHOPS • BAZAARUBS • 52/F IFC 2 • CENTRAL HK Motherhood is a journey of discovery; of unlearning, re-learning and self-meaning making with others. Motherhood is also a role that can be experienced and needs to be understood and honoured, not just by mothers, but by society as a whole. This is why, coming to our second anniversary, HKM is looking to celebrate #EmbracingMotherhood as our 2020 flagship theme: to redefine the meaning of motherhood, without boundaries.

  • Never too young for volunteering
    Two weekends in a row, we have taken the girls for their hands on volunteering experiences to let the 4 and 6 years old get a taste of helping those who are in need. Last weekend we went to Soap Cycling to volunteer ourselves from 10:30-12:30 where we had to crave out the dirty portions of the used soaps collected from different hotels in town. The “clean” upcycled soaps will then be delivered and shipped oversea to those in need. During the time weContinue reading “Never too young for volunteering”
  • Girl Boss Q&A: Love that lasts

In this Girl Boss Q&A, we have Amy Kwan of Good Wills. Established in Hong Kong, Good Wills truly believes that “everyone is entitled to have a Will” and is endeavoured to promoteContinue reading “Girl Boss Q&A: Love that lasts”
  • Why do I bring my kids to work?
    Being an entrepreneur means you are your own boss and you can also choose when and how to involve your kids to your work. My girls are now used to having moments where they could see me at work – in meetings, at events or like today in a shooting. I grew up spending every Saturday in my father’s factory. Although I hated it when I was a kid, those were the moments where I picked up a lot of my father’s value andContinue reading “Why do I bring my kids to work?”

After the breakfast today, it’s proven that James and I are friends of life and death given that there are minimal social interactions in this city as it is struggling from the Coronavirus outbreak. 一個充滿了愛和正能量的星期六早晨。 我提早離開家,與社企Rolling Books 的James Chong會面,他總是鼓舞人心,給了我很多能量。 香港正遭受冠狀病毒傳播的影響,大家也減少了很任何社交活動。今天有幸和James兄共進早餐,足之證明我倆已是生死之交。Continue reading “The Ability to give is Empowering”

    Our modern world shivers as if we are collapsing into anarchy. Wildfires are burning out of control. Governments are refusing to listen to their people. There are stories of neighbors turning on neighbors. Families being torn apart. Nowhere are those divisions more on display than in Hong Kong.

  • Storytelling for NGOs | NGOs也要說故事
    在這以數據作主軸的世代裏,每個人都會接收各種形式的廣告和營銷數據,包括廣告,贊助帖子,廣告牌,印刷廣告及電視廣告。據說每個人平均每天可以看到4,000個廣告。對於公司而言,要在眾多牌子中脫穎而出,令觀眾對廣告有親切感及聯繫感,牽動人心的技巧是必需的。 In today’s data-driven world, an average person consumes various forms of advertisement and marketing data every day including banner ads, sponsored posts, billboards, print ads and TV ads. It is said that an average person sees 4,000 adverts on a daily basis. For any brand to break out of this clamour and have a memorable connection with their audience, the art of storytelling is essential. 比起大多數的市場營銷方法,故事是最容易與讀者產生共鳴的一種方式。這可以為讀者帶來代入感,增加讀者及機構的聯繫,從而增加讀者對機構好感度。 A story brings the audience closer to the cause. Stories are a fundamental human experience that drivesContinue reading “Storytelling for NGOs | NGOs也要說故事”

    While many of us have to work at home during the outbreak of coronavirus in Asia, we all need to keep a little sanity while interacting with the keyboard and screen rather than real human for the whole day.
