Children's Rights Education Funding Scheme opens for application
      The Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau (CMAB) is inviting applications under the 2021 Children's Rights Education Funding Scheme. The deadline for application is January 14, 2021.

      A spokesman for the CMAB said today (November 20), "The Government has been committed to co-operating with different sectors of the community to promote children's rights. In particular, we hope to enhance the public's understanding of children's rights enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child by encouraging and supporting more organisations to undertake educational projects through the Scheme."

      Enthusiastic support from organisations for the Scheme has been received in every round of application since the establishment of the Scheme in 2006. The community activities funded under the Scheme targeted different social groups, and have enhanced the public's awareness of children's rights. So far, the Scheme has funded over 360 projects carried out by various non-government organisations, including community organisations, children’s groups, ethnic minority groups, and secondary and primary schools.

      The Scheme in 2021 will offer sponsorships under the "District-focused Project" and "Territory-wide Project" categories. Application information on the Scheme is available from the CMAB website (www.cmab.gov.hk/en/issues/child_funding.htm). For enquiries, please contact the Children's Rights Unit of the CMAB at 3655 4179.
