Our Campaign Story

It's challenging for ex-offenders to get jobs, given their history. After being released from jail, if ex-offenders are able to get and hold on to a job, they are less likely to drift back towards offending again. A job can help them take care of themselves and their families.

This is where Industrial & Services Co-operative Society Limited (ISCOS) steps in to help ex-offenders by supporting them in obtaining vocational licences so that they can upgrade their profile and achieve a stable career.

The logistics industry has proved to be the most common sector in hiring ex-offenders in recent years. However, some ex-offenders do not have the financial resources to acquire relevant skills such as driving or the vocational licences required for a job as a driver. The fees for obtaining vocational licences is a big barrier for them.

ISCOS offers training subsidies to defray these costs and enable motivated individuals to enhance their job prospects. This leads to a better quality of life not only for the ex-offenders, but their children and families as well.

Please help to support them and their families! Your contribution will help pave way for them to develop their skills and ultimately create a better future with their families.

This fundraising campaign is a partnership between the Rotary Club of Singapore and the Foundation of Rotary Clubs (Singapore) to raise funds for ISCOS to subsidise the cost of obtaining or upgrading driving licences for ex-offenders.
