We curate, design and/or fund programmes and research to understand the root causes and underlying issues behind some of the social challenges in Singapore and the United States, and partner like-minded organisations to pilot innovative and scalable solutions that could bring about long-term, sustainable changes to the social sector.
Our programmes have focused on helping disadvantaged families break out from inter-generational poverty and giving every child or youth an equal opportunity to maximise his/her potential, regardless of his/her socio-economic background. We have also supported efforts to promote a more inclusive and caring society, by raising awareness of vulnerable communities and seed-funding projects to meet their diverse needs. Some of the programmes we have designed or supported include:
The Early Years (0-6y)
Improving care and support for children from disadvantaged backgrounds cross the physical, cognitive, social and emotional domains, to give them a more equal start and a stronger foundation that could increase their chances of success later in life.
Circle of Care
The Growing Years (7-16y)
Improving low-income students' access to high quality, transformative opportunities that expand their opportunity set, while supporting their social and emotional development, to enable them to thrive academically and socially.
Raffles Scholarship Series
Integrated Care Programme @ South West
The Post-Secondary (17-25y)
Improving tertiary education access, affordability and completion for low-income students, potentially changing their life trajectories, enhancing their life-time earnings and enabling upward social mobility for them and their families.
