Outline This project aims to address the lack of psycho-social support and mental health resources available in the refugee community and to provide opportunities for leadership, support and empowerment. It is a current ongoing well-being initiative that has been self-funded by Grassroots Future. The crochet group creates a safe space for refugee women to socialise with others, let them feel less isolated, and provides a means for them to navigate their trauma. Through learning crochet and sewing, refugee women can acquire new skills, develop their talents, and be more self-sufficient for the future. They are also encouraged to hold  classes and workshops for the general public to solidify their knowledge, build self-confidence, and on the other hand, enhancing the public’s understanding of the refugee community in Hong Kong.
