AIESEC is an international youth organisation that focuses on leadership development in youths through cross-cultural global exchanges. These exchanges involve projects that are based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that UN established. One of such exchanges is the Global Volunteer programme where youths embark on a 6-8weeks overseas volunteer project.
In AIESEC, we invite international volunteers to serve with social organisations in Singapore. One such organisation is the Foreign Domestic Worker Association for Social Support and Training (FAST) which aims to empower Foreign Domestic Workers (FDWs) to add-value to their work and the local community.
Every year, FAST hosts a carnival to promote bonding between FDWs and their employees through fun activities. As a long-term partner of FAST, AIESEC participates in this carnival annually to show our appreciation towards the FDWs’ contributions to our community.
In doing so, we held a photo booth with the intention of capturing the friendships and memories of our foreign friends. It was heart-warming seeing them bringing the friends they made in Singapore to the photo booth.
We witnessed how FAST had helped improve the lives of our friends in Singapore. As an active contributor within the social sector, we are eager to participate in other similar events to continuously create a positive impact in Singapore.
