Migrasia, founded in 2016, is a non-profit making online platform for domestic workers and employers to rate and comment on employment agencies in Hong Kong. We hope to professionalize the migrant labor placement process by bringing transparency to agency practices, both good and bad. We are dedicated in promoting a fair recruitment process for migrant workers, and ensuring families who hire workers are not taken advantage of by unethical agency practices.

Thank you to all of our initial backers! We have already raised 10% of our goal in the first few days. Please share the campaign with your friends and colleagues, and help us get all the way to 100% funding so that we can offer 500 women a scholarship to EmpowerU.

Sincerely,
The EmpowerU Team

They say that education is the great equalizer. For that reason, I am very proud to be involved with EmpowerU, the largest migrant worker education and empowerment program in Hong Kong, and the only one supported by a university and its professors. We currently have over 700 women who spend their only day off in our classroom for a chance at life-changing education. Please help support them in their dream to achieve a better life through education. Every HK$500 (US$64) provides one woman with 6 months' worth of quality education, and more importantly a community and support group while they live and work away from their family. Please consider giving, or if you live in HK, come join the classes, or even teach one yourself!

Or at least help spread the words. Thank you.

*Reminder to all*

I would like to ask everyone fill out this form: http://bit.ly/2I1yZpT

Please check the blue stamp at the bottom of your contract.

If the name of the stamp does not match the name of your agency, then the agency is illegally sharing their Philippines Labor Accreditation.

If this is the case, please consider reporting this to POLO - HONG KONG SAR, many of the agencies that illegally share the accreditation stamp/chop are also involved in illegal fees and other bad practices.

I would like to ask everyone fill out this form: http://bit.ly/2I1yZpT

We are collecting information about agencies that are operating without the approval of the Philippines government.

It is anonymous and only takes 1 minute to fill out.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks all!
