Who We Are

Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2)

… is a non-profit organisation in Singapore dedicated to improving conditions for low-wage migrant workers, perhaps the largest group of disadvantaged persons here, numbering about one million out of a total population of nearly six million in this city.

Founded in 2003, we are led by an Executive Committee comprised mainly of Singapore citizens. We operate with a small number of regular staff and a larger number of unpaid volunteers.

Other pages in this website describe the work we do.

In the years since we began, we can count several policy changes, e.g. a weekly day off for domestic workers, greater legal recognition of the importance of the In-Principle Approval for salary issues, and moves towards salary payment through bank accounts, that followed our sustained advocacy.

We welcome anyone who shares our core objectives to join as a member and/or volunteer with us. Our members and volunteers span the demographic spectrum from top academics and professionals to eager young Singaporeans, retirees wanting to contribute to society, and hardworking migrant workers themselves.

We would also appreciate a donation. None of this is possible without your support.
