Dear backers,

Thank you for being a part of our incredible journey to bring our $500 for 500 Crowdfunding Campaign to life.

We successfully raised HKD43,120 online and HKD100,000 in total. It is because of your support and the support of 32 backers that we will be able to subsidize 200 migrant workers for their education and empowerment.

Your donation will go directly to subsidize EmpowerU students, facilitate EmpowerU courses, help extend our curriculum and build future projects including the online learning platform and health screenings etc.

We will notify you about our progress and keep you updated. In the meantime, feel free to contact us at info@empoweru.io if you have any questions.

Thanks again for your support!

All the best,
The EmpowerU Team

Dear backers,

Thanks so much for your support for our $500 for 500 Crowdfunding Campaign for domestic workers in Hong Kong!

Over this week, we've invited Sara Elly from Women in Finance to teach EmpowerU students about business startups and entrepreneurship, and we held lectures about health and wellness focusing on the topics of non-communicable diseases and nutritional knowledge. The courses were fruitful, and students' experience was great!

We were also honored to interview Paola Sinisterra, a well-known designer and our guest lecturer for Arts and Culture. She shared her insights into the fashion industry and talked about her teaching experience at EmpowerU. You may access the interview here: https://bit.ly/2HCNTY2.

We want to thank all of our partners and backers so far; it is with your support that we’ve been able to achieve so much.

With HK$37870 already raised, our crowdfunding campaign is still on-going! There are 33 days left, and we hope to raise HK$250,000 in total for our hard-working and aspiring supporters and lovers of local families! Feel free to support us and share our campaign with your families and friends. Thanks!

Dear backers,

There are only 40 days left in our campaign! Let’s make it count.

We have raised HK$32,870, but we still need HK$217,130 to reach our goal so that we can offer 500 women at EmpowerU with a scholarship of $500 each!

Over the past weeks, we have invited lecturers from Women in Finance, BNP Paribas and the University of Hong Kong to teach EmpowerU students about business leadership and entrepreneurship, law and anti-trafficking, health and wellness as well as information technology. We also held a team building event at Shek O’ Beach yesterday. It was fun and enjoyable!

Today, we will have CPR training and Fire Safety and Prevention Training for Batch Hope at HKU!

All that we’ve accomplished so far has been rewarding and extraordinary. It is impossible for us to achieve so much without your support.

You may support us with any amount, and please kindly share with your families and friends about our campaign. Even small amounts are of huge impact.

If you have questions, so please feel free to reach out to us at our support address info@empowerU.io.

Hi everybody!

Thanks for all of your support thus far for our $500 for 500 Crowdfunding Campaign! Thank you to everyone who has funded, shared, and gotten involved – we are so grateful for your support!
We want to keep you posted on what we have accomplished so far:
We’ve raised over HK$32,000, 13% of our goal!

Meanwhile, our courses have been running smoothly. Over the past two weeks, we had courses covering anti-trafficking and law, photography and media studies, fire safety and prevention, and business. Students’ takeaways were fruitful!
Check out our pictures taken during classes!

Right now, we have 55 days left in the campaign, and we still need to raise HK$217,230 of HK$250,000 that will be used to expand our curriculum, invite lecturers and subsidize students for course materials!

We’ve been very excited to get this campaign off the ground! We are determined and confident to meet our goal, but we can’t do it without you.
Please consider contributing and pass our campaign https://bit.ly/2CVyk90 on to as many people as you can and help us get the rest of the way there. 
Feel free to share our campaign on Facebook and Twitter, too. Thank you for everything!
