Our Campaign Story

ends 27 Oct 2022, 11:59 PM

We are a group of students from NPS International School. Our aim is to raise funds for the foreign workers in Singapore, who have greatly contributed to our prosperous city.

The HOME foundation provides assistance to foreign workers in the following ways:

1. Direct assistance, shelter and food for domestic workers who
experience abuse and exploitation.
2. Employment advice and legal aid for migrant workers in Singapore,
and when they have returned to their countries of origin.
3. Skills training such as English language, computer, baking, cooking,
and caregiving courses for domestic workers.
4. Advocacy and public education on issues affecting migrant
workers.

About The Charity

HOME (Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics) is a charitable organisation with Institution of Public Character status. Since 2004, we have been dedicated to improving the welfare and upholding the rights of migrant workers in Singapore.

Migrant workers play a vital role in contributing to Singapore. They take on low-waged jobs as domestic workers or in the construction, marine, manufacturing, service and conservancy sectors. Their work is often dangerous and precarious.

We assist migrant workers who suffer abuse and exploitation. Unpaid salaries, excessive working hours, work injuries, physical and psychological abuse are some of the common problems these workers face. Some of them may also be victims of human trafficking.

We run a shelter for domestic workers, helpdesks for domestic workers and male migrant workers. We also offer legal assistance, health education and vocational training to the workers. In 2016, over 2,000 migrant workers received assistance from us. And about 2,000 domestic workers have sat through our skills training courses.

HOME works with government agencies, civic groups, corporations and other community partners to realise our vision in creating an inclusive society that stands for justice, fairness and equality.
