Outline Grassroots new-immigrant women are often stereotyped as being lazy and dependent on government welfare. The simmering tension between Hong Kong and mainland China have further aggravated the discrimination which negatively affects their social participation, and employment opportunities and status. This project aims to enhance self-help and mutual supports among the new-immigrant women in Tokwawan by training them as organizers to outreach to and help those in need in their neighborhoods.
