“I really want to make friends and do activities. I also want the local people to understand me better. How can I do that?”
Here in Singapore, we have a number of volunteer-run groups which can help you know the community better.
You can check out Welcome in My Backyard (WIMBY) or the WePals Facebook page for activities you can do in Singapore and how you can meet new people.
Welcome In My Backyard (WIMBY) is a volunteer-run campaign that raises awareness in relation to Migrant Workers (MWs), with the primary aim of humanising MWs in the local community’s eyes.
We connect migrant workers in Singapore with locals to chat virtually and become friends!
We hope to befriend migrant friends to increase situational awareness, cultural understanding and inclusivity between migrant and Singaporean community.
