Our Homes, Our Stories is an anthology of 28 real-life stories written by domestic workers in Singapore. Our Homes, Our Stories offers a look through their eyes as they share real-life stories, from childhoods in mountain villages to rogue agents and difficult employers, and that one thing they all suffer from the most: homesickness, and the pain of leaving their families behind - in Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar and India.

The women write frankly about sacrifice, broken trust, exploitation, lack of food, and salary deductions. But there are also tales to lift the heart, of supportive employers, the love they have for the families they take care of, and how they use their time in Singapore to realise their dreams for the future.

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.
