About Campaignends 07 Jun 2019, 11:59 PM
There are nearly 250,000 foreign domestic workers (FDWs) living in Singapore. They have made the difficult decision to leave behind their children and family in hopes of creating a better future. While their remittances provide much needed financial support to their families, most women return home with little to no savings at the end of their contracts.
With your help, foreign domestic workers and lower income women in Singapore can learn the skills and confidence to save, invest and start businesses of their own through Aidha's financial education programmes. They can take their first steps towards economic independence.
Aidha has impacted over 4,500 women since its inception and our data shows strong improvements amongst our students, with average monthly savings increasing by nearly 80% amongst alumni. Alumni also double the number of productive assets they own and business ownership increases from 6% to over 40%, with many staying on as domestic workers in Singapore after graduating but opening businesses with family members. In addition, our research shows a strong multiplier effect, with every woman attending Aidha impacting nine lives at home.
Help us to raise $5,000 to fund 50 scholarships. Give more women the chance of a financial education and empower them to build a brighter future.
Aidha's life-changing programmes are only made possible thanks to the support of generous donors. And that's why we need your help!
