Voice of Singapore’s Invisible Hands: Indonesian Migrant Domestic Workers and Poems on Home and Family

  • Adriana Rahajeng Mintarsih University of Indonesia


Yoga Prasetyo, the son of an Indonesian migrant domestic worker (MDW) in Singapore, founded Voice of Singapore’s Invisible Hands (or The Voice) in late 2016. A nonproft organisation that aims to challenge the negative discourses about MDWs, especially among Singaporeans, The Voice uses Facebook to promote its members’ literary work and achievements, as well as to share stories to inspire migrant workers.
