THE PROBLEM

The world is not safe for young women. There are not enough safe spaces for vulnerable young women to turn to and without the right support, they’re at risk of being further marginalized, unseen, and misled. This is especially true for many young female sex workers (YFSWs).

Young women are at a point in their lives where they can change their direction. It is an ideal window for intervention, and it's important that we support this group just as we would support adult women, mothers, babies, and younger children. Young women...

FOUNDER'S MESSAGE

Embark on our impactful journey ahead! ?

This year marked some important milestones for Teen’s Key. We expanded our service to young mothers and teenage girls who have questions and concerns about sexual and reproductive health. We organized leadership training programs for young mothers, provided support for unplanned pregnancy cases, and offered sex education training. With your support, we believe we can bring about great changes for young women and girls in Hong Kong.

In the meantime, there have been some personnel changes in our board of directors. I would like to thank Ms. Gammy Kwok for her service over the past year, and especially for her assistance in organizing our first gala dinner. Ms. Kwok has always recognized the value of our work and mission and has contributed significantly to our growth. We appreciate her dedication and support.

Looking into the future, Teen’s Key will continue working to make our vision a reality: that every girl has sufficient resources, support and opportunities to make their dream come true, regardless of their background.

Thank you once again for your support along the way!

Warmly,

Bowie Lam
Founder & Executive Director

What is Teen's Key?
Teen’s Key is a nonprofit organization committed to helping young women — no matter their situation or circumstance — gain access to the information, services, and support they need. We focus on addressing young women’s sexual and reproductive health, and to providing holistic treatment for young women in crisis, including those who work in the sex industry. We provide a safe space where young women can realize their potential and where new hope can be formed.
How does Teen's Key differ from other organizations?
There are a few nonprofit organizations in Hong Kong that provide help to “traditional” adult female sex workers. However, there is a lack of support for those workers in their early teens. This is the need Teen’s Key was initially founded on. Resources and approaches to support young female sex workers are different than those to support adults because adolescents have different needs. That’s why Teen’s Key is here to fill the gap, providing holistic support specifically for young women and mothers, who are working in the sex industry.
How does Teen's Key help and support these young women?
Teen’s Key provides a safe space for young women in crisis to receive non-judgemental and holistic support. Through community outreach, intervention & prevention programs, a developmental support series, and a peer-to-peer Young Mothers’ Club (and more), Teen’s Key aims to reach and empower vulnerable young women to become independent, so they can build a new phase of their lives. Teen’s Key also conducts joint research with other non-profit organizations to raise public awareness on the rights of young women, also young female sex workers on sexual reproductive health matters.
