Our Campaign Story

ends 17 Jan 2022, 11:59 PM

Children and youths from underserved backgrounds often lack means and know-how to engage with the digital world. These are means and knowledge that have arisen from the pandemic.

Race to Bridge the Digital Divide aims to fill this gap through providing a digital experience through racing simulation on a digital creation of the Orchard Road Street Circuit that allows them to develop hand-eye co-ordination skills and a short introduction to the technology behind the experience. The Orchard Road Street Circuit was featured in the E-Cities Championship live broadcast on Mediacorp's Mewatch.

Held at Race Box at Mandarin Gallery and presented by Legion of Races, Race to Bridge the Digital Divide aims to provide for up to 500 beneficiaries, with learning experiences, food and beverages and other activities during this session.

It aims to raise funds for #Engage by TRCL. Launched in 2020 during the Circuit Breaker, it collaborated with the Ministry of Education to impact more than 800 children from 36 primary and secondary schools through providing online training programmes from visual arts, drama, dance to technology & art activities.

#Engage aims to build a digitally inclusive society through: providing digital devices for vulnerable children; developing arts and culture programmes which engender creativity; inspire the acquisition of new skills and impart wholesome values; and developing online arts platforms which showcases the creativity of the youth to the community.
