MKP 2021 Focus

Misi Kami Peduli (MKP) is back with a brand new focus for this academic year! To adapt to the current pandemic situation, MKP 2021 is focusing on engaging Indonesian communities in Singapore through our collaboration with Suara Kita, an Indonesian migrant worker community under the Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics (HOME).

 

Currently, Indonesian domestic workers face many vulnerabilities during their work time here in Singapore because of the lack of information available and their behaviour of “sungkan dan malu bertanya”. Many are unaware of the relevant administrative procedures on applying for work as foreign domestic workers in Singapore, which often force them to apply through maid agencies and have their salary cut by up to 9 months. When they arrive in Singapore, many experience culture shock because of how little they know about Singapore and the families they are working for. Many are also unfamiliar with their rights as domestic workers including salary, rest or off days, medical care, meal and sleep arrangements among many others. 

 

So, information is key. Information can prevent many workers from falling into problems like abuse, assaults and mental breakdown. Thus, one of the focus for MKP 2021 is to create an interactive and sustainable information platform in Bahasa Indonesia where domestic workers can access them in a few scrolls and taps away. The other focus will be on conducting engaging workshops and events to empower domestic workers with relevant skills and knowledge while also learning valuable lessons from them.

 

We are calling out to passionate individuals who are interested to learn more about domestic workers and inspire them with your expertise to join us! There are two roles open for MKP 2021:
