“Talent is universal, opportunity is not.” – Nicholas Kristof, Half the Sky
Aidha provides financial literacy programmes such as money management, computer literacy, leadership and entrepreneurial skills for foreign domestic workers and lower-income women. Students learn to open businesses of their own or invest in productive assets like livestock and land in their home countries.
Aidha (a Sanskrit word meaning ‘that to which we aspire’ ) is a Singapore-registered charity set up in July 2006. We believe in ‘sustainable futures through financial education’ and that every woman should have the opportunity and choice to determine her own future.
These opportunities that we are able to provide them, enables them to break the cycle of poverty.
With every Aidha student sharing her skills with her family and friends, a whole community benefits, making the multiplier effect of our financial literacy programme huge and life-changing.
