Gift of Education!
Through our research, we have seen that it is important for the domestic workers to take ownership of the journey they are starting at Aidha. Whilst sponsoring the students is a very valuable gift, we invite employers to encourage the recipient of the gift to maximize this gift of education. Some employers choose to pay a significant portion of the fee and agree with the student that she pays the remaining portion of the fee as a valuable investment in her future. We leave this as your discretion and thank you for joining Aidha’s cause to enriching the lives of domestic workers in Singapore.
