HK: So what are the is­sues?

HK Magazine - - UPFRONT -

PD: They don’t have spe­cial­ized health­care that ad­dresses their phys­i­o­log­i­cal and cul­tural needs. For ex­am­ple, many eth­nic mi­nor­ity girls who are un­der­go­ing pu­berty can’t see male doc­tors. We want to help change that by ex­pand­ing the scale of the med­i­cal [ser­vices]. The other thing is a lot of younger peo­ple from eth­nic mi­nori­ties don’t have the right mind­set for pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment, so we or­ga­nize ca­reer devel­op­ment work­shops and sem­i­nars. We also or­ga­nize sports classes to en­cour­age kids to de­velop their tal­ents. Hong Kong needs new blood to progress, and we want to em­power young mi­nori­ties to take on that role: Not just by giv­ing them ba­sic ser­vices, but by tak­ing into ac­count ev­ery­thing they need to lead ef­fec­tive lives.
