Improving Quality of Work in the Face of Tremendous Challenges

在逆境挑戰下的持續發展及改進

Stepping into our 5th year, HER Fund has improved and consolidated many aspects of our work. Between the months of July 2008 and March 2009, HER Fund developed a strategic funding focus on the theme of economic justice after reviewing the development of local women's rights work and our strategic position in supporting the growth of the movement. In terms of target groups, we focus on supporting rights-based grassroots self-organizing women groups which have the least funding resources. We also encourage innovative and exploratory work with young girls as they too are largely neglected by the mainstream. Publicity and communications were enhanced through the publishing of a regular and quality E-newsletter and printed version to donors and network organizations, and we had an expansion of new contacts from schools, community groups and media through various 88 Days 2009 activities.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEMBERS

執行委員會成員

踏入第五個年頭,婦女動力基金不斷改善 及鞏固多方面的工作。在2008年7月至2009 年3月,婦女動力基金在檢視本地婦女權 益工作的發展及如何有效地推動婦女運動 後,決定集中並策略性以經濟平等作為主 要的撥款範疇。在有限的資源下,我們會 專注地支持缺乏資源的基層婦女權益/自助 組織,同時我們也鼓勵創新性及探索性的 青少女工作項目。

We also adopted a more diversified fund-raising strategy including the development of a web-based fundraising approach and cost effective local fundraising events and activities. With a limited number of staff, we are aided by a team of experienced and committed volunteers, making continuous effort on philanthropic education in order to raise local gender awareness as well as raise support from schools and community agencies. The effort has proven to be very encouraging and we have received much positive feedback for last year's work.

在過往一年,我們採用多元化的籌款策 略,包括以網上平台來籌款、具成本效益 的本地籌款活動等。在有限的員工人數 下,我們得到一班具豐富經驗及有承擔的 義工朋友協助我們繼續推動公義行善的教 育工作,提昇本地學生及團體對性別問題 的關注及支持。這些努力的成果令人感到 鼓舞﹗

Grant-making Innovative Initiatives on Grant-making work

創新性的撥款工作

It was a fruitful year, and we made a step forward in our grant-making work. In March 2008, our fifth grant cycle, HER Fund gave grants for 9 projects, totaling HKD265,000. Our focus was promoting women's rights at a grassroots level. At the same time, we continue to look for good partners to work with young girls.

我們在撥款工作上邁進了一大步。在去年 的第五年度撥款,婦女動力基金共資助了9 個項目計劃,資助額共港幣265,000。我們 繼續推動基層婦女權益工作的同時,也繼 續與關心青少女工作的團體合作,推動青 少女權益工作。

Two innovative initiatives on capacity-building of grassroots women's organizations were attempted during this period. This includes channeling designated funds to support the Grassroots Women's Platform, a collective community platform of 4 small women's organizations based in the district of Tuen Mun. HER Fund supports this newly-formed Grassroots Women's Platform by receiving local donations for them. The second initiative is soliciting funding from Oxfam Hong Kong to support a tailor-made capacity-building programme for 3 grassroots women's organizations which are also HER Fund's existing grantees. This pilot project aims to strengthen the capacity of core members in organizational building and enhance their ability to develop in a more sustainable way. This capacitybuilding program aims to further strengthen the local women's movements at the grassroots level.

撥款

同時婦女動力基金也開展了兩個與基層婦 女團體合作,就能力建立有關的工作項 目,第一:指定撥款項目 - 支持「籌辦民間 組織互助中心」。這個中心是由四個位於 屯門的民間婦女組織所成立的,但欠缺開 展的資源,故此婦女動力基金決定以「指 定撥款項目」的形式去支持,把所有指定 捐給「籌辦民間組織互助中心」的捐款, 均會轉交木綿社作為推動此計劃之用。 第二個創新性的工作項目是由香港樂施會 資助,為三個基層婦女自助團體安排度身 訂造的能力提升計劃,包括婦女貧窮關注 會 (低收入婦女)、同根社 (新移民婦女) 及香 港愛心保母協會 (照顧者服務)。此試驗性的 計劃是希望增強各婦女基層團體的能力及 未來持績性的發展。

Highlight of Projects of 2008/09 2008至09年度撥款項目剪影 Economic Rights and Justice for Women

基層婦女的經濟平等

Grassroots women not only have to take up the traditional role of "carer" in the family, they also have to earn a living for the family. However, many of them are in the low-income group, and they do not have any labour protection. These grassroots women contribute greatly to the economy and to their family, it is their rights to be treated with dignity, and with fairness protection, no matter in the economy, in the society or in the family.

現在的基層婦女,除了要擔當傳統的「照 顧者」角色外,更要外出工作幫補家計。 但她們不少為低收入、沒有工作保障的一 群。基層婦女對家庭、社會甚至香港的貢 獻是不容忽視,故此她們不論在工作上、 社會上及家庭內,都必須要受到有尊嚴的 對待,及公平的保障。

A strategic review on Grant-making

策略性檢討撥款工作

After 5 annual grant cycles, the Executive Committee decided to review our grant-making work strategically in September 2008. Economic Justice for Women has always been one of our key grant-making themes. We also see the difficulties of grassroots' women organizations and their initiatives to get funding resources to support their work within the current Hong Kong context. Therefore, HER Fund decided to strategically prioritize our grantmaking in the next 3 years (Year 09/10 to Year 11/12) in making effective social change:

在5個年度的撥款工作後,婦女動力基金的 執行委員會在2008年9月決定策略性地檢視 撥款工作。經濟平等一直是婦女動力基金 的重點撥款範疇。而在資助計劃中,基層 婦女組織的工作項目在香港是非常缺乏資 源去開拓及發展。故此,婦女動力基金決 定在未來三年(09/10至11/12年度),集中並 策略性地作出撥款的優次,以更有效地作 出社會改變︰

1) Economic Justice, especially for rights-based grassroots women's groups/ organizations; 2) Projects with new marginalized groups, e.g. Young girls' rights-based projects and creative programmatic approaches or methodologies.

1) 經濟平等,特別是基層婦女權益/自助組 織; 2) 邊緣群體而創新性的工作,例如青少女 的權益工作項目、富創意的活動手法。

As for media communications, we also held press meetings in last December, with specific angle on current social issues and was successful in attracting media coverage to promote our 88 Days Campaign online auction and local concern on women rights' issues.

Organizational Development 機構發展

Your Donation Makes A Difference 您的捐助帶來不一樣的改變

HER Fund benefited from our committed and stable Executive Committee leadership, who gave clear policy direction to the running of the fund. Our executive members involved in our Grant-making and Fundraising subcommittee met regularly to formulate strategic priorities and to provide monitoring and supportive role as well as sharing their expertise on related aspects in the subcommittees.

基金會有賴執委會的穩定參與及領導,讓 我們在清晰的方向及目標下,向前發展。 執委會成員分別在籌款及撥款的專責委員 會中參與,並運用她們的專長及經驗,協 助推動有關工作及訂定策略,同時亦擔當 著監察及支援發展的角色。

The staff team has become more specialized, developing various aspects of work on grant-making, fundraising, communication and administration. There were several staff capacity building opportunities during the year allowing staff to have exposure to international and regional women's funds' exchange program and conferences.

在過去一年,職員在工作上更趨專責,包 括撥款、籌款、通訊、教育、行政等範疇 推行有關的工作。本會亦提供不少的能力 培訓機會讓職員參與,包括出席外國會議 及本港舉行的訓練工作坊、研討會等,讓 職員進修知識和技能的同時,亦促進本會 更有效地推展工作。

Yet, HER Fund after the restructuring of staff and division of work since March 2009, each staff has to bear multiple responsibilities. Fortunately, HER Fund's administrative system has established and with well organized communication and database systems that could be easily managed by our small staff team, and at the same time, maintaining the level of our work output effectively. HER Fund also was gifted with the help of volunteers who supported some office work on a regular basis and conducted small scale fundraising events as well as supporting our community educational work.

然而,在2009年3月進行人力架構調整之 後,職員的工作量更繁重,幸好本會的基 本運作及檔案系統已上了軌道,故此亦能 有效地平穩發展,我們更要衷心感謝義工 們的幫助,有賴她/他們的支持和付出, 協助推行籌款、社區教育、行政支援等工 作,讓我們能持續地向前發展。
