ItsRainingRaincoats (IRR) is an initiative that aims to improve the lives of migrant workers in Singapore, by building bridges to strengthen their integration into our community, city and country. We employ authentic and nimble strategies to help improve the quality of the workers’ lives and make them feel valued, appreciated, safe and welcome in Singapore.
Our raincoat emblem symbolizes the protection we provide them from their metaphorical thunderstorms. We believe in doing so we benefit not just the workers but the entire society, as the improved well being and morale of the migrant brothers reduces dependency costs elsewhere for Singapore and also strengthens the social fabric and compact.
You may not be able to change the world, but you can certainly try to change the world for someone: if ItsRainingRaincoats has a mantra, this is it.
We have come a long way since early 2015. We now have over 1000 volunteers, several awards along the way and a wide network of connections among migrant workers, employers, dorm operators, contractors and sub-contractors, government agencies, NGOs, the media and members of the public who collectively form the village that allows us to do what we do.
Our latest recognition as winner of President’s Volunteerism and Philanthropy Award 2020, in the Leader of Good category is testament to this village’s collective ability to make a difference.
