Bridging Sustainability and Compassion
We stand at the crossroads where sustainability meets compassion, with a single, unwavering
purpose – To encourage sustainable living and support marginalised communities.
Constraints ranging from physical disabilities to family constraints vastly limit employment opportunities. To accommodate a diverse range of needs, Re-store offers flexible work arrangements for our team to continue doing what they do best while earning a fair wage.
Re-store acknowledges the historically problematic relationship between fashion and vulnerable groups. We intentionally cultivate meaningful relationships forged upon mutual respect and collaboration.
Through this, we break down barriers and work towards co-creating an ideal world that sees everyone as equals, embodying the values of community, transparency, quality, sustainability and compassion.
We reach out to third parties, such as social workers and community centres, to look for suitable individuals.
Once connected with potential candidates, we assess their prerequisite skills and determine program suitability.
Assigned jobs considered technical skills and personal circumstances, in addition to accommodating specific needs like being homebound and adjusting schedules for familial commitments.
Being deaf, Mardiana found it difficult to secure a job in Singapore despite being an experienced seamstress.
Being a part of Re-store helped Mardiana reignite her skills for sewing and allowed her to earn supplemental income and contribute to supporting her family, bringing her a new sense of accomplishment.
“ I feel happy and good that I am able to be back in the sewing field after such a long time and enjoy the friendly environment and people in Re-store. ”
Like many of her family members who had experience in sewing, See Mui expressed interest in sewing through Re-store’s connection with The Singapore Association For The Deaf.
Being a part of Re-store helped See Mui learn more about sewing and provided her the opportunity to get to know and work with other women, a few who are similarly deaf like her.
" Working in Re-store is like a family and I like the warm and friendly environment. "
