A majority of women of diverse race are disconnected to the neighbourhood community in Kam Tin due to language barriers and their cultural practices, resulting in social isolation and low self-esteem. Besides, the outbreak of COVID-19 epidemic has imposed much financial stress on their families.
The venture aims to foster social inclusion through engaging women of diverse race, mainly Nepalese, Pakistani, Indian and Indonesian, in Kam Tin in farming and food production together with the local Chinese residents. Women of diverse race may build up their self-confidence from successfully growing and producing food.
A portion of the harvest will be given to the participating women while a portion will be turned into processed food which will then be sold at stores and weekend flea markets. Commission will be given to the participating women upon selling food products which can help relieve their financial stress amid the COVID-19 epidemic.
