"A social enterprise providing training and sewing opportunities to women in need, A-changin Private Limited, partnered the NTUC Women's Development Secretariat (WDS) to provide flexible work arrangements and better renumerations for its staff.

A-changin Private Limited is a social enterprise with a social mission to provide training and employment opportunities to women in need.

Our first work-integration initiative, appropriately named Alteration Initiative, aims to equip disadvantaged women with garment alteration skills to achieve adequate source of income and better quality of life; integrating them into mainstream society.

We have an inclusive employment practice. As of Feb 2013, we have a staff strength of 36 - 58% are 50 years old and above. Besides mature women, we also train and employ single mothers, persons with disability and former out-of-work women (50%).. Most of them were low-income workers before joining our social enterprise. Through upskilling and flexible work arrangements, they are now enjoying rewarding careers and better work-life balance.

By concentrating on sewing quality, computerised processes, modern settings and friendly service; we aim to modernise and corporatise the business of apparel alteration in Singapore.

To ensure quality, we only employ senior seamstresses who have spent decades perfecting their sewing skills in the high fashion industry. They must also be willing to give back by imparting their skills to our beneficiaries.

While making our customers look good, we also hope to engage the public, private and people sectors to Do Good. Together.
