MOMs4MOMs an initiative by HK Momtrepreneurs
A fellowship program for all HK moms, by HK moms
HONG KONG (April 2020): Hong Kong Momtrepreneurs, a non-profit organisation, is launching its flagship fellowship program on September 12, 2020. The fellowship program will include a tapestry of women that make up the diverse city of Hong Kong and will be designed to ensure interactive participation and group learning. The more privileged, under-privileged, local, expat and ethnic minority women will come together to explore topics under ‘Embracing Motherhood – without boundaries’, the theme for 2020.
Mother is the soul of the family – a mother is often the CEO, CFO, chef to the janitor of the household. She also plays an important position as a role model for the children. Hong Kong Momtrepreneurs (HKM) is the first non profit organization Hong Kong supporting busy mothers to continue having their venture to be the figures for the next generation.
The fellowship program will be designed to teach and support mother entrepreneurs. Through seminars, workshops, group projects and mentorship opportunities, the women will come together to explore topics of change, learning, well-being, relationships, work and eco-sustainability. At the end of the program, fellows will present their team project at HKM’s flagship event in May 2021 and the outstanding fellows will be granted internship opportunities working with corporate among HKM networks.
“Mothers are often neglected with learning opportunities; mothers should be granted with all the possibilities in their journey of discovery, unlearning and relearning. Hong Kong Momtrepreneurs is proud to pioneer the first cohort of MOMs4MOMs Fellowship Program to bring to moms from all walks of life together in learning more Motherhood and Entrepreneurship. We are also delighted to offer Internship Opportunities to the most outstanding fellows from the program,” shares Lena Wong, Founder and Executive Director of Hong Kong Momtrepreneurs.
With the great support from organizations such as The Women’s Foundation and The Zubin Foundation, HKM has received overwhelming responses on its efforts on women empowerment through education on Motherhood and Entrepreneurship.
Shalini Mahtani, MBE, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, of The Zubin Foundation, on the topic of the importance of entrepreneurship and motherhood in Ethnic Minority communities states, “If i look at the need for marginalized Ethnic Minorities, there is a need for so much. There is a need for women who are involved in the education for their children to look at the provision of books, extracurricular activities, the provision of helping each other. Only when you are in that position as a mother, do you think of what your children need and what your household might need and therefore you can think of creative ways for solving for those problems.”
Hong Kong Momtrepreneurs is the first non profit organization in Hong Kong supporting busy mothers to continue with their ventures. We empower women to have the achievement and self fulfilment in balancing their families, careers and community via entrepreneurship and mentorship.
