Abstract: Examines the circumstances of Filipina domestic helpers in Singapore, 1992-1995. Demographic profiles & assessments were taken from a collaborative project between the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration in Singapore & the Dept of Political Science of the National U of Singapore. It was found that the number of complaints to the Philippine embassy has steadily decreased since 1992. The efforts of the welfare administration, the Filipino Workers Development Center, the Filipino Overseas Workers of Singapore, & the Filipino On-Going Development Program have advanced the situation of Filipina domestic helpers through skills training programs & social advocacy. One of the most significant achievements was the passage of the Migrant Workers & Overseas Filipinos Act of 1995 following the execution of Flor Contemplacion that same year. It is argued that future advancement of Filipina workers can be attained through improvements in Filipino organizational membership, information dissemination, & cooperative relationships with institutions in Singapore.
