Vocational training and career support for South Asian women
Professional training in hair styling and hair accessory making will be given to the community of diverse race, especially South Asian women, to help them acquire the skills as a hair or nail stylist for gainful employment. The programme will hire suitable graduates as hair or nail stylists. Graduates can design their own hair accessory products. Depending on their availability, they can also work part-time at home or even set up their own businesses. The programme will collaborate with HKSKH Lady MacLehose Centre to recruit and train South Asian women and provide counselling and job placement support. Successful cases will encourage employers of the hair salon industry to hire South Asian women, with the ultimate effect of promoting social inclusion.
