“Being a Team Leader at Uplifters gives me a sense of purpose and responsibility. It allowed me to improve not only my life but the lives of others too. I want to educate migrant workers on how to make their migration successful so they can empower others too.”

Ron Mendua has always been passionate about helping raise awareness of issues relevant to domestic workers and providing help and information through her Facebook groups, including Help & Support For HK Domestic Workers, where she actively supports the community. As one of our Gold Team Leaders, she has supported more than five sessions of ‘Dare to Dream,’ our free online course on money management, personal growth and mental well-being. For her, taking the courses of Uplifters helped her develop her leadership and communication skills so she can become more effective in helping others.

“I was looking to build a better future for myself and my family. Going abroad allowed me to get a good job, and although it was difficult to get used to, the adjustment paid off and now I work with a good family in Hong Kong and can support my family in the Philippines. I also get to learn more about the world and gain experiences that will help me in the future.

Being part of the Uplifters’ community, I did not only learn about money management and personal growth, but it also paved the way for me to become a community leader.”
