HOME (Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics) - Singapore



HOME FACT SHEET

HOME was established in 2004 to respond to the welfare needs of migrant workers in Singapore. We are a registered society and charity with Institute of Public Character status. We are also a member of the National Council of Social Services (NCSS)


Our mission

We believe in the principles of equality, non-discrimination and dignity for migrant workers. Low wage migrant workers play a vital role in contributing to Singapore. They can be found in the construction, marine, manufacturing, service and conservancy sectors. A significant number of women are domestic workers. 

We assist migrant workers who are abused and/or exploited. Unpaid salaries, excessive working hours, work injuries, physical, sexual, verbal and psychological abuse are some of the problems these workers face. Some of these workers are also victims of human trafficking.
