Subsidised classes for new maids

The Straits Times | Monday, Sep 1, 2014

Employers can now sign their new maids up for subsidised classes in healthy cooking, massage, traditional Chinese medicine for pain relief and others.

The classes are part of a support programme launched by the Foreign Domestic Worker Association for Social Support and Training (Fast).

The charity is partnering 14 maid agencies to offer the programme, which includes a half-day Singapore heritage tour and a year's membership at the charity's clubhouse in Raeburn Park.

The cost of the programme is about $145, before subsidies from the charity's corporate sponsors.

It will complement the one-day Settling In Programme required for all first-time maids.
