The Learning Initiatives for Employment (LIFT) Community Impact Fund (CIF), launched in 2019 by The Community Foundation of Singapore (CFS), provides vocational training and socio-emotional support for marginalised individuals in Singapore before placing them into jobs.

One of the beneficiaries is Jerry Tan, 23 years old, who had suffered from a stroke in his second year at Singapore Polytechnic. He underwent a one-month training course in Dignity Kitchen to complete a series of Workforce Skills Qualification (WSQ), following which he worked in a Japanese restaurant for about a year before returning to Dignity Kitchen to serve as a cashier due to Covid-19. Jerry is currently helping to train other colleagues with physical disabilities while considering his future education and career.

LIFT is designed to leverage the expertise of social enterprises in terms of job coaching and job matching. These programmes support persons with disabilities, persons recovering from mental illnesses, disadvantaged women and youth-at-risk who face challenges finding jobs and keeping them.

The funding allows two social enterprises, Bettr Barista and Dignity Kitchen to develop standardised training programmes and expand the number of training places available to aid these marginalised individuals.

Donate now to help the marginalised individuals improve their quality of life through sustained employment.
