This International Women’s Day, Trip.com is partnering with local leading lifestyle leisure and attractions operator Mount Faber Leisure Group and HOME (Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics) to support female migrant domestic workers (MDWs) with Cable Car Sky Passes, allowing them to enjoy panoramic views onboard the iconic Singapore Cable Car rides on their rest days. Trip.com and Mount Faber Leisure Group are donating 200 Cable Car Sky Pass (Round Trip) tickets to HOME beneficiaries. 

The partnership is a continuation of Trip.com’s Pay It Forward campaign, which was first launched in 2020 to support local tourism businesses, charities and social service agencies. After 34 successful programs, Trip.com remains committed to providing meaningful travel and lifestyle experiences for the less privileged members of the community.

From Mar. 1 to Apr. 30, the public will be able to donate the Cable Car Sky Pass (Round Trip) — Mount Faber Line & Sentosa Line in support of this cause. The total number of tickets secured at the end of the campaign will be distributed by HOME, an organization dedicated to the welfare, empowerment, and advocacy of migrant domestic workers (MDWs). At just S$24.50 per ticket, the public may purchase tickets for HOME recipients via the Trip.com website here.

To start the initiative, Mount Faber Leisure Group and Trip.com welcomed the first five HOME beneficiaries on Feb 27. 

“Just wow! I have been here before (4 years back), but it took years for me to save a penny for my ticket, and now, it’s free!” said Jo Ann A. Dumlao, a beneficiary, speaking of the Singapore Cable Car experience. “Having this moment of joy and laughter with my fellow beneficiaries is what we really need after working hard six days a week. I am overwhelmed by this very generous support from Mount Faber Leisure Group, Trip.com and HOME. This one-day break with breathtaking views and beautiful surroundings, our Sunday could not have been more perfect! We really hope that people contribute to this initiative so that our fellow friends can also enjoy their day off with this lovely experience.” 

“Look at that, after 28 years of working here in Singapore, here I am at this very moment looking at the stunning views of Mount Faber Peak, Harbourfront and Sentosa.” said Delia Comedia, another beneficiary. “In all my years in Singapore, this is the first time for me in the iconic Singapore cable car; this memory will stay with me for a lifetime. Thank you so much, Mount Faber Leisure Group, Trip.com and HOME, for giving my fellow beneficiaries and me this exciting experience!”
