All Past Work on Racial Segregation
3-21!! International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination - Carnival and Community Exhibition
International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is observed annually on 21st March (so-called 3-21). Proclaimed by the General Assembly since 1966, all international communities were called on to put extra efforts on promoting the message related to racial discrimination.
Vocational and Professional Training
Associate Degree Programme in Social Work
Under Unison's advocacy efforts, two ethnic minority youths were admitted to the Associate Degree Programme in Social Work in 2010/11 after their Chinese language admissions requirements were waived. These students will hopefully become the first batch of ethnic minority social workers in Hong Kong.
School Places Allocation
Before 2004, among 1,200 government-funded schools, only 7 primary schools and 3 secondary schools were willing to admit ethnic minority children, and ethnic minority students often had to wait 6 months to 3 years before they were placed in a school. Students were often placed in schools far from home.
