Hi! We are Project Perspective, a team of Year 6 students from Raffles Institution helping to fundraise for Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2). TWC2 is a local non-profit organisation dedicated to improving conditions for low-wage migrant workers.
The recent spotlight on our migrant workers, at the height of the pandemic and the case of the abused Myanmar worker have reminded Singaporeans on the need to be more inclusive and accepting of our workers.
Our team has produced a collection of books about migrant workers from a child's perspective. The two books are: My Father's Skyscraper Dreams and My Mother's Half Built House. The book is targeted towards primary school students as we believe that the effort to develop Singapore as a more gracious society should start with the young.
These books are available for loan from our National Libraries and are also available as e-books at https://tinyurl.com/riprojectperspective

About The Charity
Transient Workers Count Too extends help to low-wage migrant workers who have been injured, unpaid, or abused by employers. Low-wage migrant workers constitute about one in five persons in Singapore. Doing jobs like construction, sanitation and domestic work, they form the backbone of our society and economy. Yet they are often treated badly by employers. Sometimes, salaries are not paid, rest days denied, housed in unsafe and unhygienic places, physically and psychologically abused, and when injured, abandoned without adequate medical treatment or left with no income. Migrant workers have no family in Singapore to fall back on for help. Doing low-wage work, they do not have savings to tide them through difficulties. TWC2 tries to help by extending a lifeline to those in need.
