The program has been implemented in pilot communities in the capital city, where the concept of participative development, the empowerment of women and volunteerism are promoted amongst the public. In addition, women with potential in leadership are invited to advance the programs in their communities. Specific activities include:
A compilation of Women Promoting Green Consumption in Communities; promote the popularity of green consumption concept amongst the public; increase the public’s awareness of green consumption.
Attract more women to take part in programs related to green consumption; set up professional teams in charge of energy-saving, waste recycling and reevaluation of commodities.
Organize members of professional teams to attend training sessions in the improvement of their leadership, sense of volunteerism and management competence.
Further increase the public’s enthusiasms towards green consumption via their attendance in relevant activities.

Introduction to Enterprises

The Hong Kong Federation of Women (HKFW) was founded by Charter Chairperson Dr. Peggy Lam and 10 other prominent women in June, 1993. As a non-profit and non-political organization, its main objectives are to unite women, encourage their interest in Hong Kong affairs, improve and protect their lawful rights, and cooperate with other women's organizations across the globe.
Members of the HKFW come from various levels, occupations, races, and districts in Hong Kong. Amongst members are business women, professionals, workers and housewives as well as those who are fervent in women development and advancement. The membership of the HKFW exceeds 1,600, with around 60 corporate members from all over Hong Kong, Kowloon and the New Territories. Total membership of these organizations exceeds 100,000.
With the support and active participation of the Council and its members, the HKFW has organized over 100 projects, activities and services during recent few years. For instance, it has sponsored celebrations for the National Day and Hong Kong Special Administrative Region’s (HKSAR) founding anniversaries with women’s organizations, organize exhibitions, seminars, youth leadership training program, Family Health Month program and etc. The public has given high acclaim to the HKFW for its consistent efforts in the assistance of needy women. In addition, the HKFW has set up four training centers, which are capable of providing local women with educational training and professional development.
The HKFW has promoted educational affairs amongst women and children in the Chinese Mainland. It has sponsored the construction of vocational schools, handicraft training centers, reading rooms and health clinics in mountainous regions over recent several years. More recently, it constructed five water facilities in north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region with the Water Cellars for Mothers charity program and donated five mobile clinics to local women and children in western China.
Women in Hong Kong have become an indispensable part of mainstream society in the mainland and found opportunities to give back through their own social transformation. Going forward, the HKFW will continue to tap into the valuable resources, talents and potential of its members, to solicit contributions and participation in future endeavors.
