The Prejudice Trail

In partnership with Migrant x Me 

Solve n+1’s collaboration with Migrant x Me LLP (MxMe) began in Nov 2018. The founders of MxMe, Isabel Phua and Chew Chen Hao, are young adults who learnt about the issues that migrant workers in SG face on a daily basis. Impassioned by the injustice they face, they spent the last 5 years working with migrant workers on their own account; regular dinners, social and emotional support, as well as looking for partners and NGOs to support them. This eventually led them to discover a knowledge gap between locals and migrant workers in Singapore, a key proponent to unspoken prejudice against these foreigners. Migrant X Me is therefore their response today.

Solve n+1 started our consultations with Isabel and Chen Hao in November 2018. We led them through a process of analyzing the issues, market analysis, incubating ideas and rapid prototyping. The result was a clear vision of the role that MxMe can play in facilitating social cohesion and cross-cultural integration.

After several rounds of consultation with Solve N+1, MxMe proudly launched the Farrer Park ‘Prejudice’ trail. This seven-station educational walk takes participants on an experiential journey into the life of a migrant worker in Singapore. Participants begin to understand the complexity of the issues and surface the prejudices that one may hold towards the migrant worker community.

“I really appreciate the expertise and gifts that Solve n+1 has provided. It has supported MigrantxMe to think the bigger picture, with a long term, and more strategic approach. That has helped a lot in knowing what we need specifically when dealing with schools! The pastoral heart and the capacity to always maintain the right perspectives are what sets you apart!! You have a heart to develop us and also to always remember the bigger picture in the whole situation, and not being afraid of failure but pushing through and persevering till something happens. That has encouraged and embolden us to take that risk, which enabled MigrantxMe to have achieve our impact for 2019.”
