Make A Gift Today, Change Lives Tomorrow

To many, Christmas is a season of joy, celebration, and family get-togethers. To others, it is unfortunately another Christmas spent alone.

This December, the NTU Development Office takes the spirit of giving a step further by collaborating with students to raise funds for the less fortunate. Under an initiative by the NTU Development Office's iGave programme, we are embarking on a fundraising project with NTU Welfare Services Club (WSC) to advance meaningful student activities that shape character and cultivate life skills.

iGave supports the NTU Welfare Services Club (WSC) which runs 7 Regular Service Projects (RSPs) serving the Elderly, Children, Hearing Impaired, Intellectually Disabled, Physically Challenged, Visually Handicapped and Youths-at-risk.

The Regular Service Project (RSP) Elders is a student-run project that aims to make a difference in the lives of the elderly by bringing them joy and company through our volunteers' vibrancy and enthusiasm. Aside from regular Saturday sessions where student volunteers fill the gaps of the elderly's lives by simply conversing with them, RSP Elders also run special events during festive seasons (such as Christmas and New Year) to bring the festive spirit to vulnerable elders. Other initiatives include conducting personal development workshops, leisure activities and providing academic mentoring.
