On 19 March 2023, the Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO) and Rotary Club of Singapore (RCS) has jointly launched the Guest Workers Cricket Training Programme at Tuas South Recreation Centre. With 100,000 migrant workers living in Tuas, a remote industrial area that is isolated with no avenues for recreation, the launch of this cricket programme ensures that these migrant workers have the opportunity to participate in enjoyable sport activities.
Since February 2023, more than 150 guest workers have signed up for this structured six-month training programme. This programme enhances the emotional & physical wellbeing of guest workers through cricket, a widely played sport in South Asia.
Migrant workers who signed up for the programme received cricket equipment, jerseys and shoes, provided by the RCS. They were also coached by professional cricket coaches in this structured cricket training programme.
We thank the RCS for their unwavering support and look forward to our continued effort to provide holistic care for our migrant workers.
