Introduction

 

Volunteers Igniting Change through Empowerment (VoICE) was establish in March 2020, to facilitate social integration of migrant workers into Singapore's society and spark conversations amongst NUS students on the idea of inclusion of the 'Other'. VoICE aims to partner with volunteers to work with migrant workers to have their voices heard and their contributions acknowledged by Singaporeans.



 

What We Do

At the heart of the programme is a commitment to recognise the dignity of migrant workers through collaboration and shared participation to the best of our capability.

We have held a focus group discussion with our fellow NUS students, discussing the various struggles migrant workers face. We are very honored to have guest speakers from Migrant Workers’ Centre (MWC) and Archdiocesan Commission for the Pastoral Care of Migrants & Itinerant People (ACMI)

We are developing a card game that aims to cultivate empathy in players to create and maintain empathy bridges which would facilitate open conversation between Singaporeans and migrant workers progressively.
