OUR INITIATIVES

Welcome Notes

Ongoing

Our Local Integration team invites you to post Welcome Notes on this website under the "Welcome Notes" tab, or on your own social media.
 

These are messages of encouragement for our new MW neighbours.

We have collected more than 1000 Welcome Notes, which we translate and distribute to MWs. These notes are available for all to view here.

Well-being Activities

Coming Soon!

Our Local Integration team is looking into potential activities with MWs!

 

Stay tuned!

School Partnerships

Ongoing

Our Local Integration Team has engaged schools on issues affecting our MWs.

Long-term partnerships have been forged through the Values-In-Action programme.

 

Schools such as Yuan Ching Secondary School and Geylang Methodist Secondary School have partnered with WIMBY to reach out to their new MW neighbours.

Backyard Conversations

Past Initiative

Our National Advocacy team had organised panel discussions titled "Backyard Conversations".

 

Panellists including MWs were invited to share about their experiences dealing with COVID-19 and exclusion, providing a platform for our audience to learn more about their lived realities.

Mental Health Campaign

Ongoing

Our National Advocacy team is collaborating with MaidforMore, SG Climate Rally, and CRL Response Team to shed light on the mental health needs of MWs.

 

Project Open Doors was launched on 10.10.2020 (World Mental Health Day), along with a petition "One Day Out" that aims to restore the freedom of male migrant workers.

Sign the petition now!

Conversation Starters

Past Initiative

Our National Advocacy team had curated short videos to address unanswered questions from our Backyard Conversations initiative.

 

Our MW panellists utilised this platform to talk about their lives, including what they do on their off days, how dating is like for MWs, and much more!
