Mother’s Choice is a local charity serving the many children without families and pregnant teenagers in Hong Kong. We join hands with our community to give hope and change the life stories of vulnerable girls and babies. Our vision is to see every child in a loving family.
Each year, thousands of teenage girls face crisis pregnancy with no support, and thousands of children are in need of a family for a number of reasons including neglect, abuse, abandonment, or family breakdown. We’re here to help the most vulnerable in our community by providing high-quality services for children, youth and families, and actively providing ways to prevent the problem. Learn more about what we do here.
In 1986, a series of newspaper articles pointing to the alarming numbers of teen pregnancies in Hong Kong deeply moved our founders to open the doors to Mother’s Choice. Find out more about how they expanded into providing services for children here.
Mother’s Choice is led by a team of professionals with outstanding experience in their fields, and governed by a Board of Directors who provide strategic oversight and steer the organization to reach our vision. Meet them here.
Since 1987, Mother’s Choice has given hope and changed the life stories of thousands of children, youth, and families through our holistic services. We commit to working hard to raise the funds we need, spend wisely, and provide transparent financial records. Learn more here.

Our Core Values
We believe in hope when a teenage girl asks for help, when a baby cries and grieves for his lost family, when a couple begins the adoption process after journeying through infertility. We meet them in the midst of their need, and we see lives transformed through the power of hope.
We believe in courage when a social worker stands up for a foster child to be in a permanent family, when a family open their home temporarily to a child in need, when a teenager chooses the best decision for her baby. We recognize their courage, and we stand up to be a voice for children in adversity.
We believe in relationship when a counsellor listens to the story of a pregnant teen, when a volunteer cradles and sings to a newborn without a family, when a disabled child walks for the first time into the arms of his forever family. We need one another, and we reach our full potential in authentic relationship.
We believe in community when a lawyer donates her time pro bono to ensure a child is protected, when friends gather to support a family who have a newly adopted child, when a volunteer organizes an event to raise funds for and awareness of children in need. It takes a village to raise a child, and we all have a role to play.
We believe in being a catalyst when a teacher encourages youth to make healthy relationship decisions, when an adopted child shares their story in their classroom, when social workers across Hong Kong share their experiences and learnings, We all need to work together, and we inspire others to be champions for children.
