Our Campaign Storyends 30 Jun 2023, 11:59 PM
At Standard Chartered, we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to realise their potential. Yet globally, more than 200 million young people are out of work or live in low-income poverty, and that's just not good enough.
Futuremakers by Standard Chartered is our global initiative to tackle inequality by promoting greater economic inclusion in our markets. Futuremakers supports disadvantaged young people through community programmes focused on education, employability and entrepreneurship.
Globally, our aim is to fundraise and donate USD 75 million between 2019 and 2023 to empower the next generation to learn, earn and grow.
In Singapore, the funds will go towards Community Chest to support Futuremakers-themed programmes and projects.
