Among the children we assist whose immigration status has been determined, 48% returned home or were in process of returning home with their mothers with a HK birth certificate and clear instructions on how to register this crucial identity document in their home country, 45% became HK residents and 7% were referred for adoption in HK.
For the mothers we help, 60% secured a valid visa and remained employed in HK, 40% returned home or were in process of returning home.
Our successes include removing roadblocks to adoption via collaborating with government departments and other NGOs, and making various submissions to the UN Committee on the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

創新計劃 Pioneer Projects
Home Country Integration Program

Many mothers find returning to their home country with their child very difficult. This is particularly the case in religiously devout societies such as Indonesia and the Philippines.

The new initiative aims at:
- Meeting government departments, NGOs, international organizations and academics to raise awareness of the issue and consult their view in preventative measures and resources available for returnees;

- Assisting mothers to gain access to critical services in the long term for their children; and

- Providing financial assistance to families for the first three to six months after returning home.
