PROJECT REPORT

One-Forty is a non-profit startup committed to SEA migrant worker issue. Our mission is “Make every migrant journey worth and inspiring”. We also believe every person deserves to dream, and every story deserves listeners. To accomplish our mission, we are devoted to empower them with required skills and trainings, so they can regain self-awareness and self-confident with clear visions and better lives. In the process, we also aspire to improve structural economic issues.

The Journey of One-Forty Migrant Life School

Last year, we collaborated with Taipei City Hospital to launch the "Dementia Care Foreign Caregiver Training Program." This collaborative effort not only deepened our team's understanding of the caregiving landscape but also illuminated numerous areas where our ongoing efforts can be directed. In situations where both language proficiency and professional knowledge are lacking, foreign caregivers, responsible for 1/5 of Taiwan's dementia care duties, often find themselves facing immense pressure, to the point of losing their voice.

In addition to crafting a caregiving handbook in Indonesian, we established an online community to facilitate the exchange of experiences and mutual support among migrant workers. In a recent community discussion addressing "How to handle accusations of theft from the elderly being cared for," One-Forty provided a comprehensive explanation of various dementia-related symptoms, aiding migrant workers in comprehending the underlying reasons for such situations. Numerous migrant workers, drawing from similar experiences, shared their own coping strategies, providing valuable insights for those navigating through difficulties.

Furthermore, to embrace the essence of multiculturalism, One-Forty is actively collaborating with educators across various disciplines. Beyond the release of educational resources on migrant worker issues, we have organized teacher workshops. These sessions delve into the current landscape of migrant worker issues in Taiwan and feature practical demonstrations of teaching plans, actively involving educators. Witnessing educators from diverse backgrounds willingly devote their weekends to these workshops, all in an effort to make important issues engaging for students, serves as a profound source of inspiration for our team members.
