Outline

Transgender people face all sorts of discrimination after they have revealed their gender identities.  AWCHK believes misunderstandings towards transgender people are the root cause of the problems and issues they face. This project aims to:  

1. Empower transwomen, equip them with the skills to live a better life, and improve their ability to face stress and become more resilient.  

2. Strengthen Hong Kong Community's understanding of transwomen and pre-operative transmen to eradicate discrimination and violence targeting transgender people
