Letter from the CEO

Dear Friends of Aidha,

Hope you have been staying safe and well through these unprecedented times.

Since the pandemic started to take hold in the early part of this year Aidha, like everyone, has been very busy adapting to a changed world. You will have received an update in May on all our various new online activities and these have continued apace over June and July as well. With the gradual easing of restrictions, we very much hope we can be back at our campus soon but we are also making contingency plans to potentially bring even more of our classes online in case that is not possible.

Shedding Light on FDWs’ Inside Lives

As Covid-19 forced the postponement of Aidha’s annual Unspoken Life Photography Competition and Exhibition, in mid-May, Aidha launched Inside Life, a mini-photography contest for foreign domestic workers (FDWs) in Singapore. Inside Life was launched to get the participants’ creative juices flowing in light of the extension of the Circuit Breaker. It also served as a platform for aspiring photographers to try their hand at photography and hone their skills.
