Employers can now sign their new maids up for subsidised classes in healthy cooking, massage, traditional Chinese medicine for pain relief and others.
The classes are part of a support programme launched by the Foreign Domestic Worker Association for Social Support and Training (Fast).
The charity is partnering 14 maid agencies to offer the programme, which includes a half-day Singapore heritage tour and a year's membership at the charity's clubhouse in Raeburn Park.
The cost of the programme is about $145, before subsidies from the charity's corporate sponsors.
It will complement the one-day Settling In Programme required for all first-time maids.
