We are a non-governmental organisation based in Singapore that is concerned about the rights and welfare of migrant workers.
We believe in the principles of equality, non-discrimination and dignity for all.
WARNED NOT TO SIGN
A while back, HOME blog wrote about Warning Letters, which are issued by the Police informing domestic workers that they ‘have been issued a stern warning in lieu of prosecution.’
Such warning letters may sound harmless, but the consequences are not. It presumes guilt when the case is not even tried in court. The implication of this for migrant workers is significant.
1 Human trafficking is the exploitation of human beings
to make money.
2 Victims are most commonly trafficked into forced
labour, forced sex work, and forced domestic work.
3 Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing criminal
activities in the world making US$ 32 billion every year.
4 The ILO estimates that there are more than 20 million
people living as modern slaves worldwide.
5 Traffickers prey on those who dream of a better future.
Victims can be men, women, or children made vulnerable from lack of money or opportunities from work or study.
The HOME Volunteer Management Team, invites prospective volunteers to join HOME's next Volunteer Orientation Session on 27 Jan 2015, Tue at 8pm.
At this session we will introduce you to all the different areas of HOME's work and highlight all the opportunities for volunteers. There will be members of staff present and current volunteers on hand to share experiences and answer questions. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the very diverse areas of our work and to discuss how you can get involved. After the orientation you can let us know which area of work you are interested in and we can link you with the appropriate people in the organisation.
