COEXIST Events

COEXIST is offering FREE Introductory session on financial literacy for any domestic worker in our CIS community interested in overcoming financial difficulties and achieving their goals!

Domestic workers work so very hard to provide for their own families. This would be a great opportunity for domestic workers to get an introduction as to how financial literacy works and how important it is! Through this, we hope to empower them to be financially independent and be able to plan for their own and their family’s future!

With roughly 83% of domestic workers in some level of debt, they are often burdened by many financial obstacles. On top of that, the COVID-19 situation has definitely made it harder to stay financially afloat, which is why financial literacy is so very important!

NGO Enrich HK will be leading an introduction session on financial literacy. Learn more about Enrich: www.enrichhk.org

Mental health introductory sessions

On the 21st of March, Coexist hosted the first mental health introductory session for local non-government organizations! The session was conducted over zoom and was quite successful!

Registration details are on the poster on the left. 

Christmastime Virtual Kitchen 🎄

To celebrate Christmas, COEXIST hosted a Virtual Kitchen where the participants learned how to make a Filipino and an Indonesian dish, taught by two fellow domestic workers of the CIS community! 

This activity was done in collaboration with Enrich who also joined us at the event! Enrich is a local NGO that aims to empower migrant domestic workers in Hong Kong with the tools to overcome financial difficulties and achieve their goals and dreams. 

The virtual kitchen session was a great success and helped students, parents, aunties, teachers and more bond on the special occasion!
