Two and a half years, and what a fantastic journey it has been!
Women are powerful catalysts in creating positive changes in any society. Aidha’s motto stems from this belief. The training programmes fashioned by Aidha present a perfect case study for the research team at Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Study for measuring the “Multiplier effects of empowering foreign domestic workers in Singapore”.

Sunday is always a busy day for Aidha volunteers (and of course, our students!) as they make their way in and out of the Campus Office, collect their teaching materials, and rush for their classes. But they always seem to leave their classes with a satisfied smile….
In the past month, a few of our wonderful volunteers left their classes with mixed emotions of pride, and satisfaction mixed with a tinge of melancholy as they completed their last classes at Aidha. These are volunteers who are or will be leaving Singapore in the near future and will no longer be able to continue teaching and mentoring our students.
We dedicate this article to them to thank them for their endless commitment and enthusiasm as mentors, teachers and guides to our students. Here are some words of wisdom that they would like to share with the Aidha community.
