There are thousands of domestic helpers in Singapore who left their countries for better financial opportunities here to provide for their children back home. Unfortunately, even after years of service, the money they earned might not be enough due to the high cost of living here. Aidha provides various educational programmes to encourage and teach these strong women how to save, invest and even start their own business.
