About Campaign

ends 05 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM
Over three and a half decades, AWARE's budding advocacy efforts have blossomed into tangible changes in Singapore, impacting the lives of countless women (and men!). We've contributed heavily to the repeal of egregious discriminatory laws and policies, which made marital rape legal, placed a quota on female medical students and kept single parents from easily accessing public housing. These monumental changes each took years of persistent campaigning. Yet there is still more work to be done.

It's our responsibility to carry forward the legacy of our predecessors, by planting ever more seeds for collective action in this country. Only then can we continue to support and empower women in need through today's crisis and beyond.

Donations will go towards:

- Nurturing next gen of change-makers who will continue amplifying women's voices at all levels of society
- Continuing crucial work in advocacy and research with a focus on gender issues in Parliament and influencing key policies via position papers and policy submissions
- Keeping services and programmes running to meet increased demand during and after this pandemic. These services support 5,000 women annually, at no or low costs

The fight for gender equality continues onwards.

The above impact statements are for illustrative purposes only. All donations received will be used to support AWARE's programmes and services under the NextGen Fund.

About the Charity

The Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) is Singapore's leading gender equality advocacy organization. AWARE supports and empowers women on an individual basis and seeks to remove all gender-based barriers that prevent individuals in Singapore from developing their potential to the fullest and realizing their personal visions and hopes. It does this in three ways, namely, research and advocacy, education, and providing social services.

In 2016, AWARE won the Charity Governance Award 2016 for the Medium Charities/IPCs category.

The Charity Governance Awards, (CGA), organised by the Charity Council, aim to promote good governance in the charity sector by acknowledging the excelling work of charities, while inspiring others to emulate their best practices.

AWARE qualified as a candidate for the CGA by becoming a winner of the Charity Transparency Awards (CTA). The CTA recognises charities with good disclosure practices.
