Stories of loss, longing, betrayal and endurance. More than 200,000 of Singapore’s 3-million strong labor force work as low-wage Foreign Domestic Workers (FDWs). 27 of these FDWs have collaborated with CARE and H.O.M.E by lending their voices to an exhibition titled Respect Our Rights, Voices of Foreign Domestic Workers. This digital storytelling exhibit not only allows these women to build skills and represent themselves, but also provides/allows the viewer a look into the everyday lives of an under-represented and often mistreated demographic. We invite you to witness the stories and share in the lives of Foreign Domestic Workers at the first viewing of this photo exhibition - Respect Our Rights, Voices of Foreign Domestic Workers - with the hope that awareness of the issues they face will result in the better treatment of FDWs.

Newton Room, Level 2, Singapore 609081 (Science Centre Singapore)


A rise in global temperatures has led to extreme weather events, droughts, floods and restricted food and water security. Climate change affects both men and women, but disproportionately affects the world’s poor - with 70% of the world’s poor being women. Women face social, economic and political barriers that largely prevent them from coping with the threat of climate change, but also prevent them from taking part in crucial decision-making processes to combat global warming. For the United Nation’s International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, join us for a panel discussion with leading female scientists on climate change to learn more about global warming and its wide-reaching impacts.

This International Day of Peace, join us for a talk with the inspiring Patricia Mouamar from World Vision Lebanon. Patricia Mouamar has been working in World Vision for more than 10 years. As Communications Manager, she oversees major initiatives and implements strategic communications goals in emergency communications and media relations. As a child, Patricia lived through Lebanon’s own civil war and understands the psychological pain and struggles of children caught in the crossfire. Today, she works closely with Syrian children living in refugee settlements in Lebanon where she has first-hand experience with girl children who have been married off at a very early age and a lack of access to education. A powerful global advocate of World Vision for children in need of humanitarian aid, she believes strongly in prioritizing the value of humanity and peace over politics, race and religion and most significantly, she believes in being a beacon of hope for people in need.

Martial Arts has taken the world by storm. Like most other sports, Martial Arts have always been a male dominated field, but the rise of powerhouse female fighters like Ronda Rousey, Gina Carano and Cat Zingano has led to a rise in awareness of women in the sport. Join us for a panel discussion featuring prominent female Martial Artists in Singapore, where you will hear their stories of how this has not only empowered them, but how it has allowed them to fight the narrative that sports, particularly Martial Arts, are only for men.
