About Us

We are a charity which provides assistance to those who are abused and exploited since 2004.

HOME (Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics) is a registered society and charity which was founded in 2004. We believe in justice, equality, empowerment and dignity of migrant workers. We are also an advocacy group dedicated to providing assistance and support services for migrant workers who suffer abuse and exploitation. Wage theft, work injuries, physical and psychological abuse are some of the common problems. We also assist victims of human trafficking and forced labour. We provide immediate crisis intervention as well as long-term support such as education and training programmes to achieve our goal of enhancing the well-being and future economic prospects of migrant workers.

HOME also seeks to promote the diverse voices of migrant workers in Singapore through outreach projects, and public education on issues affecting migrant workers.

 

We work with government agencies, civic groups, corporations and other community partners to realise our vision of creating an inclusive society which appreciates the role of migrants.
