JRS focus has been on asylum seekers and refugees in the region, but we wanted to broaden our scope of work to include migrant workers within our own society. We started our outreach programme with Homestay Lodge, a dormitory which currently houses about 3900 migrant workers. Our target is to develop English language and skills-based training classes and workshops as well as organize social events and outings. By serving those in our own country, JRS volunteers will have a deeper understanding of issues facing our migrant community
"Donate a handphone" Project
UPDATE: 53 working phones were handed over to the migrant workers through their dorm operators.
We would like to thank the Church of St Ignatius, Church of Divine Mercy and Agape Village for allowing us to use their premises as collection points. Their enthusiastic publicity also allowed us to reach out to the parishioners and donors.
This has been a joint collaboration with Hagar Singapore.
