Geylang Adventures

We explore the community and understand it as an ecosystem with different groups of people co-existing with one another. With our love for preserving this delicate ecosystem, we seek to support the various groups by doing a range of projects. Come discover more of what we do.

Migrant Mission

Taking time to appreciate our nation builders

Migrant workers are a huge part of the Geylang community. Most of them have built the infrastructure we enjoy in Singapore brick by brick. Yet, we shun them and treat them as outsiders, even to the point of marginalization. To show our gratitude, we organize projects to work with the migrant worker community in one small way or another.

Majulah Belanja is an organized brunch between locals and migrant workers, held on 18 September 2016 (Sunday, 9am—2pm, 5 hours), at a migrant worker dormitory.

Held on the weekend after Hari Raya Haji and the Mid-Autumn Festival, we hope to celebrate our vibrant food culture while giving Singaporeans a chance to experience the lives and food of various groups of migrant workers. Majulah Belanja literally translates to “Onward, To Treat”, where everyone gets the chance to treat themselves to an experience like no other.

Majulah Belanja hopes to raise more awareness and understanding of migrant workers and their culture through food. Local Singaporeans will be invited to cook and dine together with a host of migrant workers at their dormitories, fostering a sense of community and comradeship.

"We have seen much progress in the public's perception of migrant workers. More people now recognise them as the builders of our nation, and that they are a part of our social fabric. Fewer people shun them and many more are reaching out actively to befriend them and help improve their well-being.

With more attention now given to issues faced by them, we are hopeful that in five years, there will be greater improvement in the protection of their rights, as well as practical improvement in their welfare, such as food quality and living conditions. Let's continue to work towards that."

— Rachel Lum, Singapore Kindness Movement

We hope you've had a positive experience with new friends and good food. Here's a gif of the moment when the guys from @ppfavisual flew their drone over the dormitory, time flies when you're having fun.

How does one define poverty? How does it differ from country to country? Who ultimately wins when the cost of living goes down, the producers or the consumers?

Today, Stefen Chow shares about "The Poverty Line" project at day 2 of the Asian Journalism Forum organised by Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information.
