Taiwan has 500,000 registered foreign laborers, 90% of whom are from Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand. Many of these migrant workers come to Taiwan in search of a better life, but may end up exploited or cheated by their recruitment agency or encounter physical or sexual abuse.
Our team runs a self-help group for Filipino women who have migrated to Taiwan, often for marriage. These women sometimes feel misunderstood, struggle with the language, and are disconnected to their culture and home. Some may be at-risk of abuse. Our group creates an empowering, healthy, and therapeutic space to discuss issues, teach communication skills, grow spiritually, and offer individualized case work when necessary.
Support and advocacy
Our group creates an empowering, healthy, and therapeutic space to discuss issues, offering individualized case work when necessary.
The group emphasizes capacity building wherever possible, including learning English and communication skills, understanding how to prevent abuse, and more.
Members are encouraged to connect with the local church to develop on a spiritual level and to broaden their support network.
We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization under the Free Methodist Church in the USA. The majority of our work is done through partnerships. Last year, we worked with 100+ agencies in North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia. We believe human trafficking cannot be solved by only one organization or denomination – we’re all in this together!
