Enlightening the Migrant Workers and Foreigners to be a good resident of Singapore by counselling and various skills development.
HUMANITY UNDER GRACE (HUG) Hug Singapore is an ongoing effort to educating the public through its outreach programmes and especially acknowledges the wealth of potential that the younger generation possess and can contribute to the community and society. With our uniquely designed programmes, we engage schools through an immersive and interactive attachment programme that aims to build greater understanding and awareness of the migrant worker environment in Singapore.
This service learning project aims to grant students a broader perspective of the diverse groups of people we live with and encounter daily in Singapore’s society. It also aims to inculcate a greater sense of understanding of the experiences of migrant workers. In order to strive for a more inclusive Singapore, we hope to be the platform that supports such learning and the instilling of values that develops each student into compassionate and concerned contributors of society.
