Entry Description

There is an estimate of 8 million Indonesian migrant workers abroad (including undocumented workers) 75% of them are women working as domestic helpers. Every month, 25 000 Indonesian women travel to Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Saudi Arabia. Their primary goal is money. The hope to make a better living and help their families. Beforehand, they are forced to go through a training in one of the 500 centres in the country. That’s how their are recruited by agencies from the destination countries and then “sold” to their future employers.
