About Campaignends 30 Jun 2018, 11:59 PM
More than 240,000 foreign domestic workers who live in Singapore have made the difficult decision to leave behind children and family in hope of creating a better future. While their remittances provide much needed financial support to their families, most women return home with little or no savings at the end of their contracts, facing economic hardships and an uncertain future despite their years of hard work and sacrifice. Our education programmes aim to break this cycle of poverty. Aidha provides financial literacy programmes such as money management, computer literacy, leadership and entrepreneurial skills to foreign domestic workers and lower-income women to help them create a financially secure future for themselves and their families.
Our programmes work. Our impact data shows that monthly savings increase by nearly 80% amongst alumni; they also double the number of productive assets they own and business ownership increases from 6% to over 40% amongst our alumni.
