Past-Programme

Testimonials

This experience helped me to understand what the poor need. It has made me realised that the issue on poverty (in Singapore) is not as simple as I thought it would be. I used to think that initiatives like donations and food banks were sufficient to help them out however after listening to their stories, I realised that there needs to be a more sustainable way that they take care of themselves other than relying on others.


..this experience will humble you and it also very interested to explore a new neighbourhood in Singapore and learning about their close knitted community
