Have you ever wondered what life is like for a migrant domestic worker in Singapore? In Our Homes, Our Stories women that work in Singapore as live-in domestic workers share their real-life stories. They write about rogue agents, abusive employers, complicated relationships, and that one thing they all suffer from the most: missing their families back home - in Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar and India. The women write about sacrifice, broken trust, exploitation, lack of food, salary deductions and constant scolding; but also about supportive employers, the love they have for the families they take care of, or how they use their time in Singapore as a stepping-stone to realise their dreams for the future.
