We are proud to see our Team Leaders, domestic workers themselves, soar beyond Uplifters. Ailenmae Ramos and Maria Nemy Lou Rocio, were inspired by the Migrant Writers of Singapore, a grassroots initiative led by Uplifters’ Team Leaders in Singapore, to co-found Migrant Writers of Hong Kong.

Migrant Writers of Hong Kong recently celebrated their third anniversary and published an anthology. For more details, check out the Hong Kong Free Press article about their accomplishments here.

It’s truly heartwarming to witness the ripple effect of our alumni’s peer leadership program, which primarily aims to train alumni who are eager to give back to the community and volunteer to support our new students.
